After the game, Papelbon told the media he was wrong.

“I’m in the wrong there. I’ve got to leave it up to our manager,” Papelbon said after the game. “There’s a lot of competition. It’s a long season, it’s a grind and I think we’re going to handle that in house and stuff like that.

I talked to Bryce and told him how I feel. We’re on the same page now.”
