Closer Chimes in on Schilling, Bonds:
Paps Says HR Chase is Good for Baseball
Papelbon was asked if he will be paying attention as Barry Bonds approaches the all-time home run record.
“Yeah, definitely,” said Papelbon. “He’s doing it for baseball. And I think it’s good for baseball. And I think that he’s going out there and crushing home runs and getting baseball back to where it was in the late 1990s and such that, hey, fans are going to come out and see the home runs, there’s no doubt about it. And fans will come see good pitching. And I think he’s doing great for the game itself, so I can’t complain.” -- 5.9.07, Jonathan Papelbon, Company Man
