Jonathan Papelbon Says Red Sox’ Recent Skid Just Part of Season, Team Still Has a Lot of Confidence


The Red Sox have lost four in a row and six of their last seven, which has some members of Red Sox Nation a bit concerned.

But, fortunately, the players in the Sox locker room do not share that concern. Instead, according to closer Jonathan Papelbon, the team is remaining confident.

Papelbon said after Saturday's 11-inning loss to the Rays that the team's recent skid is just a bump in the road, and is something he hopes the Sox can learn from as they head down the stretch and hopefully into the postseason.
