Daily Link Dump 9/17/14

Links before the middle game of this three-game set. John Jaso is most likely done for the year. Many here at Athletics Nation advocated for him to transition to a DH/1B this season to avoid this specific issue, in addition to the fact that he wasn't particularly gifted as a catcher. Delmon Young believes the key to the postseason is to "keep your booty loose." This differs from conventional wisdom. Joe West has been handed a one-game suspension for putting his hands on Jonathan Papelbon. Derek Holland has been using an interesting two-pitch mix. Welcome to the 21st century. Check out...

Jonathan Papelbon Gets Tossed After Blown Save

Cinco-Ocho GonnoAh, the memories. Former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon was ejected from yesterday's game after giving up four ninth-inning runs in a blown save at Citizens Bank Park. As he left the field to boos, Papelbon grabbed his crotch in a perverse salute to the fanbase. After that little move, umpire Joe West tossed the big righty. Entering the ninth ahead 4-1, Pap gave up a slew of hits—including a lead-off double to another Ex-Carmine Hoser, Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The scenario brings back bad vibes from the final game of the 2009 Division Series against the Angels.
