Penny and Pap air it out
The action at today’s Spring Training workout was on Field 3, where Jonathan Papelbon and Brad Penny threw their first BP sessions of the spring.
Theo Epstein, Terry Francona and John Farrell were among those huddled over to watch, not to mention all the reporters on hand.
Yes, it’s been a slow spring, so Penny facing opposing hitters for the first time since early last September qualified as a nice news item. The righty declared the day a success.
“I felt great.
Today, for me, answered a lot of questions mentally and physically,” Penny said. “I
really didn’t know what to expect going out there for the first time but
everything felt great.”
