Easy now. I would never, ever, use the word "boner" in a playful or sinister manner. A "boner" is clearly defined as a a foolish and obvious blunder. A stupid mistake, an error, a gaffe. I know what you were thinking, don't play coy with me. Frankly, I'm offended. What I'm referring to here is Papelbon's intention of throwing his Slider as often as his Split-Fingered Fastball [WEEI]. We'll get to why this will be a mistake, after the jump.
