    Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon compares Manny Ramirez to cancer in an Esquire article:

    And the link to the whole article, by SportsJournalists.com favorite Chris Jones:

    Dude, but he plays the game the "right way." Of course, it doesn't matter that he doesn't produce like Manny, just that he plays it the "right way."

    Whatever the hell that means.

    Yeah, but does he play it righter than Eckstein? No way.

    Just like Schilling, Papelbon just doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.

    [kissing butt] I thought that was a really great story by SportsJournalists.com's own Chris Jones.[/kissing butt]

    But dude, Gola, who DOES produce like Manny? Nobody. But Bay produces pretty well, hell I think (without looking it up) that he went 31-101 between both the Pirates and Red Sox. I bet the slight decline in production from Manny to Jason Bay is worth it when you get rid of a headache that manny seems to have been to the Sox inside the clubhouse.

    Why? He told the truth. Is there anyone on Manny's side on this outside of his immediate family and his agent?

    Clubhouse harmony apparently = better winning percentage. Red Sox win pct before the trade ... .571. After, .620.

    Fuck Papelbon and the rest of the goddamn Red Sox.

    No, Papelbon is exactly right. But it's just stuff like this where I'd rather Papelbon just be the Sox's closer and keep quiet. Manny is gone. No need to dig up the past.

    You sure that didn't have to do with an easier schedule? Aside from two series with the Yankees and two with the Rays in the final two months, it looked like a favorable schedule.
