Phillies Q&A with Lee, Howard, Thome, Papelbon

Cliff Lee, Ryan Howard, Jim Thome, and Jonathan Papelbon took questions at the 2012 On Deck with the Phillies Reception, a Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce event. Watch the video below to see what they had to say.

Papelbon isn’t the most well-liked guy in baseball, but he seems very affable and funny at this event. Thome is as lovable as always, Lee couldn’t care less that he’s at this event, and Howard seems rather optimistic about his future given his injury. Overall, it was a very interesting Q&A session that should only make you thirst even more for Opening Day.

    What is Papelbon’s deal? I like it when athletes don’t give the scripted answers, but this guy just seems like an idiot. “I like money. I won money. I came here to win money on a plane. I like food.” Sweet, Paps.

    I’m just really surprised I didn’t know Ryan Howard had a kid. And that he’s 11!
