Nationals Fans Already Hate Jonathan Papelbon

papelbon fister

OK, maybe a little bit of hyperbole there, but Nationals fans are already salty at Jonathan Papelbon for taking the number 58 and leaving Nats legend Doug Fister to switch his number to 33 like some kind of loser. It definitely doesn’t help that his reputation precedes him – and they’re pissy that Drew Storen isn’t closing anymore – but Washington Post was already able to grab a bunch of tweets of people being all mad at Paps just for wearing the number he’s always worn. Papelbon compensated Fister for the number switch, as players often do, but this should be a fun ride for him.

We should tell them about “Papelbum.” Do you think they know about “Papelbum”? It’s pretty clever. Check some of the salty Nats tweets after the jump.

    Definitely hyperbole, Jim. I guarantee Papelbon paid Fister well to get the number. And the fans are too stupid to realize this occurs all the time.

    Great trade Rube. You made a division rival worse and poisoned their clubhouse. Awesome!

      Papelbon hasn’t poisoned any clubhouse. Media myth.

      Why do you say this? Because Papelbon paid Fister money for the number?

      Dolt.

    “Nats legend” is a little strong for Foster. He’s played a season and a half there.

    …I heard you on the radio yesterday ranking the all-time Phillies pitchers. you said Bunning, Carlton, Schilling and Hamels. Are you nuts? you’d better cut the chord with your Schilling love. As a Phils pitcher Hamels is way better than Schilling. Did Schilling throw a no-hitter for the Phils? NO. Did Schilling win a world series for the Phils? NO.

    All Schilling did was sit in the dugout with a towel over his head disprespecting his teammate. What a fraud!! You’re just as phony as he is. your days on the radio are numbered. No credibility when you’re friends with the athletes you cover and can’t be objective.

      “As a Phils pitcher Hamels is way better than Schilling. Did Schilling throw a no-hitter for the Phils? NO. Did Schilling win a world series for the Phils? NO.”

      Carlton never pitched a no-hitter, but he threw a ton of 1 and 2-hitters. Is Hamels better than Carlton? You are a joker.

      Yeah, Schilling was WAY better than Hamels ever was. Besides his 3 WS rings, Schilling was WAY better than Hamels not only in the post-season, but the regular season.

      I saw both Schilling and Hamels pitch their whole careers and can tell you it’s not even close.

      Look it up.

          “Son Schilling achieved none of those accomplishments WITH the Phillies”

          Yeah, because the Phillies sucked when Schilling was the ace for years. I suppose by that logic you would think Tony Gwynn sucked because he never got a ring in his 20+ years with the Padres, right?

          Another joker that thinks a WS MVP is equated to a career of greatness. Steve Carlton never won a WS MVP. He sucks. Hahahaha!

            Oh Bobby learn how to read the argument was with the Phillies not career

      • Hey, Missanelli... July 30, 2015 at 2:43 pm

        Hey, MORON BOB, I never said Hamels was better than Carlton. I said “AS A PHILLIE HAMELS WAS BETTER THAN SCHILLING.” Yeah, Carlton never threw a no-hitter, but he did win a WS with the Phils. You’re a fraud just like Schilling. you probalby believe that was real blood on his sock too. loser
