Ken Casey Clarifies Quotes About Papelbon

You may have heard that Ken made a tongue-in-cheek remark about Jonathan Papelbon’s walk-on song in a recent ESPN interview.

Turns out secondary sources have misinterpreted the quote as a serious comment. It’s not! Here’s a message from the band on the story:

What’s this we hear about us telling Papelbon he can’t use Shipping Up To Boston as his entry song? We would never do that! It was a joke, people! Maybe payback for this good shot last summer?

To the contrary, Papelbon has already volunteered his services to the Claddagh Fund’s Philadelphia branch. We wish you the best of luck in Philly, Papelbon!
