Episode #140: Where Jonathan Papelbon isn’t walking through that door

Paul and Tim look up and down the line up and the effect of injuries on the bullpen.

Episode #140
Hosts: Paul Testa, Tim Daloisio
Guests: none


Despite a rough road in Texas, the Boston Red Sox are still atop the American League East. Are tougher times ahead? Or is there offensive production to be found from the struggling bottom of the lineup?

We discuss Clay Bucchholz and “Crisco-gate” in Toronto and conclude Jack Morris is an ass. Fireworks ensue when a discussion over the injuries to Joel Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey become a referendum on Jonathan Papelbon.

All that and more on this episode of Fireside Chats.

Thanks for listening!
