I think it's time for the RJG community to address the Joba fist pump situation. I have decided that, on principle, I must be against the fist pump. Honestly, I don't care when Joba fist pumps. But I also know that the main reason I'd like to see Papelbon hit by a bus that I'm driving (and I used to drive a bus) is because of that obnoxious fist pumping celebrating he does every time he gets an out. The mature thing to do would be to just accept that they are kids having fun and letting the game be fun (hell, when I play sports I fist pump all over the place. Make a basket, fist pump. Miss a basket, fist pump. Get a hit, fist pump. Commit flagrant foul or other rule violation, ball spike and fist pump). However, I prefer to keep hating Papelbon and for that reason will take the position that Joba should not fist pump. No matter how you see it when you're own guy does it, the other side hates it. By other side of course, I mean the fans. The opposing players don't seem to care.
There are many perspectives that can be taken on this issue, so let's have them.
