It wasn’t pretty, but Jonathan Papelbon notched his 300th career save last night. He’s only the 26th pitcher to reach the mark, and tied Trevor Hoffman for second fastest pitcher to reach it, doing so in 552 games. Looking at his career, it’s impressive, but it may be hard to really appreciate that with his attitude of late. But not to worry, Howard Eskin is here to make sure we side with Papelbon from here on out with catty tweets:

Believe me, I don’t want to take Papelbon’s side on anything, but Eskin makes it a lot easier.

  1. Severely disappointed in the lack of photoshopped Mckayla Maroney faces over Eskin’s big dumb birthmark face

  2. Hey Jim,

    Let your boy Kyle know that only in his mind does it make sense to disable a comment section out of respect for the family yet post an article about said kid’s darkest and ugliest moment in life (Hopefully puking on a little girl and her father on purpose was the worst thing he ever did). I hope they put his puking incident in his obituary… disrespect to Mike…….UHHHH REALLY?

  3. Does anyone know why Kyle doesn’t use Laskowski? Ashamed of your Polish heritage? Which name is Dana taking?

    1. Scott’s my middle name and it’s a hell of a lot easier to remember and write. It’s not some secret.

      1. STOP READING THE COMMENTS! Many “celebrities” use easier names for marketing purposes. Don’t blame you there.
