PAPELGONEJonathan Papelbon has made it clear for years that he wanted to reach free agency and set the bar for closer contracts, and that is exactly what he did. His loyalty has always been to getting the largest contract possible and not to the Red Sox. On Monday he received a 4 year $50,000,000.58 contract with the Phillies. On an annual bases a $500,000 pay raise from his 12 million dollar salary last year with the Red Sox. He made it clear from the get go that he wanted to get the largest contract for a reliever ever and for that honesty Paps we thank you.
