Papelpon Might Be Just What The Sox Need
This is what happens when Red Sox Nation gets a day off on the schedule - trade talk. For instance, isn't Jonathan Papelpon exactly what the Sox need right now?
Yes, Paps has blown a couple of saves with the Phillies in the past few days. But, would you like to the see Uehara, Bailey, Tazawa or Papelpon out there in the ninth inning with a one run lead?
For the season, Paps is 2-0 with a 2.20 ERA and 14 saves.
The Phillies are 7 1/2 games out of the NL east.
He is owed $33-million-bucks throught the 2015 season.
Phils GM Rueben Amaro on trading Paps or Cliff Lee: "I never say never."
Now, here's the real kicker...are you willing to give up a couple of guys such as Xander Bogaerts, Matt Barnes, Anthony Ranaudo, Brandon Workman, Jose Iglesias, Jackie Bradley Jr?
That is what is will likely take to get Paps back!
