Jonathan Papelbon is still relatively young, but has obviously already made a name for himself as a premiere pitcher in baseball. That rep, combined with an equal level of skill and a fiery personality, usually lets him get away with saying anything he wants.
And that outspokenness, in turn, attracts the cameras. And perhaps the heinous red shades you’ll see in the video. But mostly the cameras. Comcast has such cameras, and they asked Papelbon to appear on them recently and talk about Manny Ramirez, which, as you can guess, was tons of fun for everyone involved.
You can watch the whole video, which is quite entertaining and which I recommend, right after the jump.
