Jonathan Papelbon Is Ok With Slow, Long Games Despite MLBs Plea To Speed Up Games

Man, Opening Night is gonna suck this year.

Last week, Major League Baseball called out the Red Sox and Yankees (and specifically Papelbon and Joe Girardi), telling them to speed up their games. , according to Yahoo Sports.

Well, Jonathan Papelbon has responded. He told WEEI:

Have you ever gone to watch a movie and thought, ‘Man, this movie is so good I wish it would have never ended.’ That’s like a Red Sox-Yankees game.”

When asked about having to potentially watch a movie in 30-degree temperatures, the closer offered a solution, simply saying, “Bundle up and drink beer.”

Papelbon is a lumba head. He just doesn’t get it. What he is doing is bad for the game. It is turning people off to baseball. But he doesn’t care.

So if you're at the game Opening Night and Papelbon comes in, and the game is dragging and dragging and you want him to end the game, just remember that Papelbon is fine with his 20 minute, 30 pitch innings. Prick.
