He's all yours.

The Boston Globe mentioned that the Red Sox most likely will have to have someone from within be the closer unless someone else becomes available, and they proceeded to mention the current members of the bullpen as candidates. However, it's highly unlikely that they would consider Tavarez as anything more than a long reliever or spot starter.

The one to watch out for is Devern Hansack. He could be another Papelbon.

What happened to Hansen? Did he fall out of favor? I thought he was being groomed.

As evidenced by his playing time thus far, Hansen's not ready yet. He's at least another year away, if not more.

I could see Hansack earning the role this year, and then, like Papelbon, go back to a starting role when Schilling retires.

I remember when I was in HS a lot of kids would play Hansack right where we used to play touch football. It was annoying.

I know that was a stupid joke, but, I'm not deleting it, because I don't often get to make hackeysack jokes. Or Hackensack jokes, really.

I'm sure his arm will hold up just fine.

Red Sox have signed Joel Pineiro, apparently to be the closer.

theo is turning out to be quite stupid.

paplebon proved that he was a legit closer. he whines a little bit, so they make him a starter.

they'd be much better off if theo would take the approach omar has taken with aaron heilman and just told him to shut his pie hole and get the fuck back into the bullpen.

Papelbon didn't whine, in fact said recently on the radio he'd close again if they asked...the issue is can Paplebon's arm withstand the routine of closing, they feel he will be better suited to the routine of starting every 5th day.

I think if Papelbon gets medical clearance that last season's arm issues are a thing of the past, he will be the closer, if not he starts and I may end up as the closer.

Yeah, I don't recall Papelbon whining about it at all. It was all due to the injury and the Sox fearing he might damage the arm further if he stayed in the closer role.

Doesn't make Theo's last 2 years any less of a mess.

ok pap didn' whine. actually makes it worse that he wants to take a guy out of the closer's spot who's already proven he can do it.

every move theo has made since they won the world series has been, shall we say, iffy... with the exception of his wig wearing duet on rockin' in the free world with eddie and the boys, which i must say rocked much harder than the "u-jam" version
