09:01 AM ET 03.15 | It's one thing for owners to have a little back-and-forth like John Henry and Hank Steinbrenner did recently in regard to Red Sox Nation vs. Yankees Universe. It's another for a young player to take a shot at an owner. That's what Jonathan Papelbon, 27, did in criticizing Steinbrenner. "I don't know if he's trying to stir things up or not," the Bosox closer said. "I sure as hell don't care, because he sure as hell hasn't stepped on a baseball field. He needs to just stick to pencil-pushing, I guess." Hammerin' Hank fired back yesterday. "Being insulted by Papelbon is like being attacked by a mouse," Steinbrenner told The Post.
