I guess Jon Lester is trying to clear things up about the Red Sox clubhouse.
From what I gather, you can hang out there late in the game rather than the dugout and get a beer and maybe some Popeye's.
Here's an article by Peter Abraham of the BOSTON GLOBE.
My favorite Lester line in here is in response to being accused of being a follower of Jonathan Papelbon (maybe Papelbon's got a reputation as a not so good influence or something? I don't know.)
Okay, here's Lester: "I'm not a follower. I'm a grown-ass man..."
That sounds like a man sitting firmly at the head of the grown-up table, doesn't it?
Anyway, whenever an athlete tries to come clean about something, it usually makes it a bigger mess.
Why do agents get paid?
Well, to get good contracts for their clients, but I would also imagine to help take care of PR problems like this one.
Actually, it might turn out to be more than a PR problem.
I guess there's beer allowed in lots of clubhouses around baseball.
Personally, I don't think that's the biggest deal in the world, but lets watch and see what happens now.
