Papelbon: bon

So Papelbon's inevitable first blown save is finally out of the way. And those who wondered how it would affect him had all of one inning to wait before findng out. That key go-ahead run added by the Sox in the bottom of the eighth gave Papelbon a chance to come back out there right away with another one-run lead and save the game. How did the inning go? K, K, single, K.

And thanks to my daughters (who are slowly but surely learning the names and numbers of the Sox players as the season progresses) we have a new rally-cry chez Iain, to go along with "Yooooooouk!". Repeat after me: "Il est bon, le Papelbon!"
