FenwayNation's Look About Ten Years Ago In 2006

Not quite a decade ago (June 3, 2006), FenwayNation was featuring Kevin Youkilis' game-winning 9th inning HR in a 3-2 Red Sox victory. Some guy named Curt Schilling went six solid innings for the win. Another guy named Jonathan Papelbon got his 20th save (to go along with a 0.32 ERA). Mark Loretta was named the May Player of The Month. We also posted a rant that went after all the Nomar-Haters that were still left in The Nation. And correspondent Chris Curtis informed us of the "evil" appearance of a Yankee cap 800 feet below the surface of New Mexico. All in all, a pretty chock-full edition!...

Former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon changing his tune

Did the player recently reflecting on his lot in life while standing in the Wrigley Field dugout sound like the Jonathan Papelbon we have come to know?

David Huzzard: Jonathan Papelbon really isn't a big problem for Nats

Quick – name the player you first associate with the Washington Nationals? You likely said Bryce Harper and except for some stragglers saying Daniel Murphy you would have plenty of company. No credit to you if you said Jonathan Papelbon.…Read more →
