As long as this thread is not closed, let me get in a "thank you" to Drew and to TomTerp, and of course Spinman and Bally for setting the precedent.
The Papelbon thing is interesting in that Papelbon was a college closer who some had some doubts about until he started pitching in the minors. Of course, he has had some great performances too. I hope the two get a chance to talk either at Fort Meyers (Nats visit Sox near the end of Spring) or up here on 4/3. Papelbon puts on the hick routine, but his parents I think are professors and some of the hick thing is more or less a media persona.
