Wale will buy Jonathan Papelbon’s new house if the Nats release him

Jonathan Papelbon bought a new house in Alexandria, Virginia recently. Just closed on it two weeks ago, actually. You can read all about it at CSN Mid-Atlantic.com.

Of course now his future in Washington is uncertain. He’s under contract for next year but given his dustup with the face of the franchise, Bryce Harper, it’s not inconceivable the Nats could try to trade him or release him or something. If so, what will he do with his new pad in Virginia?

Never fear, Wale is here:

 

I lived in Alexandria several years ago. Belle Haven is as boring as hell, so I have no idea why Papelbon wants to live there. I have even less of an idea why Wale would. But I guess real estate comes with its own internal logic.
