It always warms my stony little heart to see a Red Sox blogger really be on the ball about something.
Red Sox Nation is awash with glee over Jon Papelbon due to the recent notebook by Chris Snow (who, by the by, is rapidly establishing himself as the darling Sox writer of the blogging masses). Here's a guy that a lot of people hadn't heard of before Snow wrote about him, and now they're all excited.
Now, see, I had heard and gotten excited about this kid a little over a month ago. Not because I'm wicked up to date on my low-level Sox minor leaguers (I'm not), not because I have any special insider tracks to the organization (I don't), but simply because I read the fleet of Red Sox blogs, and most of them are much more au courant than I am.
Case in point: FireBrand had an interview with Papelbon last month. Credit where credit is due. FireBrand done good.
Anyways, Tigers/Astros spring training is on TV tonight. I'll probably update this later so I can natter on about, you know, real baseball.
