Jonathan Papelbon said on Sirius XM Radio that he would consider the Yankees an option if he had to leave the Red Sox.
"Not only the Bronx, but anywhere. I think anywhere is a possibility. You always have to keep that in the back of your mind because you can't just be one-sided and think that, "Oh, I'm going to be in a Red Sox uniform my entire career" because nowadays that is very, very rare and hopefully we can because there's no question I would love to stay in a Boston Red Sox uniform but I have to do what's best for me and play in an atmosphere where I'm wanted."
I understand what he’s saying about not being close-minded, but to mention the Yankees like that is a little appalling to me. Not only that, but another Red Sox player was linked to the Yankees today. What is this world coming to!?
I understand Johnny Damon is a Yankee now, but he’s an “idiot.” Papelbon is hated by all Yankees fans. I’m sorry, but if No. 58 ever dawns pinstripes, I may have to move to another club myself.
