Jonathan Papelbon on Yasiel Puig making the All-Star team: “it’s an absolute joke. It’s really kind of stupid”


JonPapelbonJonathan Papelbon is making no effort to conceal his feeling about Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig.  When asked what the Phiilies closer thought about Puig’s eligibility for the All-Star game, Papellbon had some very pointed comments…

“To me, it’s an absolute joke. It’s really kind of stupid if you ask me,”Papelbon said on MLB Network Radio, as he had trouble even saying Puig’s name correctly. “The guy’s got a month, I don’t even think he’s got a month in the big leagues, and just comparing him to this and that, and saying he’s going to make the all-star team, that’s a joke to me. It’s just really what happens in baseball when… to me it really does an injustice to the veteran players that have been in the game for eight, nine, ten plus years, and it kind of does them an injustice because they’ve worked so hard to stay there.”
