Papelbon plays barista on Nationals bench

Jonathan Papelbon was channeling his inner Corey Hart on Wednesday as the Washington Nationals hosted the New York Mets at Nationals Park, but the closer wasn't just wearing his sunglasses at night.

He was also supplying teammates with hearty cups of joe.

The injured closer, who's on the disabled list with a right intercostal strain, decided to rock some sunglasses on the team's bench despite it being a night game and also delivered French-press coffee.

It was a sweet gesture from the six-time All-Star, although whatever he was talking to teammate Chris Heisey about didn't seem to be as exciting.

The 35-year-old Papelbon is 1-2 with a 3.28 ERA and 16 saves in 18 chances.
