And Now Papelbon Might be Traded to the Blue Jays or Something Who Knows

The Jonathan Papelbon trade talks are either alive, dead or immortal.

According to Todd Zolecki, that potential Paps-to-the-Brewers deal isn’t dead yet. The Phillies are also reportedly talking to the Blue Jays about a deal for the closer. As Zolecki says, instilling in me a complete and utter lack of confidence, “reports surfaced that a deal with either team is unlikely. But that has not stopped them from continuing to talk about Papelbon.” Deal is unlikely, but hey, let’s talk anyway. That is how you figure stuff out, Ruben. Good for you. You’re finally getting the hang of this.

There is also, according to Jerry Crasnick, a mystery AL team is interested in Paps. SB Nation assumes that team is the Tigers, but I just hope that team is ready and willing to take Jonathan Papelbon. Of course, financials are still an issue and will continue to be and we might as well call all of these trade rumors dead again until at least tomorrow… so I’ll have something to write about for the, what, fourth day in a row?

  1. Are you guys ready for Mike Missanelli’s “General knowledge Wednesdays”?

    Can’t wait to the hear callers being forced to participate when they really want no part of it.

    And the biggest question is who are the morons that are e-mailing Mikey Mess encouraging him to continue with the general knowledge nonsense in the first place?

    Anyways get ready for the usual,lifeless losers who call everyday(Spanky Aj from West Philly Levi from Overbrook Angry Al Jeff from Camden Bernie from Broomall Arthur Correct).

      1. Says the guy who sucks off old man Missanelli on a daily basis let me guess you’re one of the above mentioned individuals or that idiot Josh from Pottstown or the other loser,Ingy on the cell.

        Have fun with bad dye job Missanelli’s general bullshit my bad general knowledge Wednesday’s because we all know the enjoyment factor of Bitchanelli forcing down you people’s throats his lame ass questionnaire like its some gameshow(morons).

        1. You seem to know a lot about Missanelli’s show and daily callers for someone who supposedly hates him so much.

        2. Since this might be really you…..or if it isn’t, you will surely read this:

          You suck.

          Miss sucks right now, too. So does all Philadelphia sports talk radio.

          But you suck on another level. Wanna-be-Stern-but-no-chance level suck.

          You couldn’t even take afternoon drive from some hacks, even if they partnered you with a has been like Bruno.

          You suck.

    1. Well done!!
      And you forgot to mention one more – Mike asking a caller a question, caller gives the incorrect answer, Mike hangs up and laughs at the caller for getting the question wrong. Mike is an absolute 100% pompous hypocrite.

      1. So true but according to his blind worshippers who e-mail him that’s good sports talk radio(hahahahaha).

        1. When are you taking over afternoons? Rob and whoever else they sick with rob is so boring that I listen to general knowledge Wednesdays instead. And where’s the ghost of Tony Bruno been?

    2. Joshua boy please come back down south, home to daddy and stop talking about Mikey Miss who never once acknowledged you. You’re embarrassing the family son. I wrote you a new diddy, I call it ‘Leave Philly my fat son’. I Mikey Miss u boy. Love papa Scott.

  2. Well, he isn’t worth ANYTHING in a trade unless a substantial chunk of salary is covered (like all of it). 13M per is still a lot of money for an aging closer no matter what last season was like. Sometimes it’s just better to use your best reliever to close games instead of signing a huge salary for a closer to pitch an inning when you’re ahead at the end of games. Amaro is pissing into the wind on this one. I’m afraid Phans will laugh at the return for Papelbon even if the Phills eat the entire salary.

  3. Nice headline Jim.

    Are you asking a question at the end? As in, “or something…..who knows?”

    Or are you implying that Papelbon will be traded to a something who knows? If that’s the case, what is a “something?”

    Or did you mean, “Some thing” as two separate words? If so, can you define what the “thing” is?

  4. Why are all of Jim’s posts and headlines about “something that might happen or won’t happen”?

  5. “Well, let me tell you something else. Paps is a great guy, too. Really. He is. I swear. Well, maybe not as nice as Ryan Howard or anything, but still, he’s a great guy. You’ll love him. Trust me. “

  6. Joshua boy please come back down south, home to daddy and stop talking about Mikey Miss who never once acknowledged you. You’re embarrassing the family son. I wrote you a new diddy, I call it ‘Leave Philly my fat son’. I Mikey Miss u boy. Love papa Scott.
