Don't get too excited about beating up Papelbon, says WEEI

WEEI.com felt it necessary to let everyone know that Papelbon was "lackadaisical" because of anti-migraine medication he had taken about an hour before the game:

Francona:
“You could tell the whole inning, he wasn’t himself. He got his work in. The flip side of that is he didn’t fare very well.”

Papelbon:
“It’s just one of those days. I tried to get my work in, but it’s one of those lull days of spring training. It’s not like I felt like I had a migraine going into my outing or anything. It’s just that I was real lackadaisical, not much energy in me. … I’m really just trying to throw the ball in the zone and let players get themselves out. Unfortunately, they were hitting it hard around the whole ballpark.”
