Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Jonathan Papelbon is likely to make a decision on where to sign in the next 24 hours. If you’re lucky, maybe he’ll be on your favorite team! Adding flavor to your local nine’s clubhouse!
Bradford says there are a lot of interested parties, and others have speculated on the Cubs and Marlins might be good fits. Assuming there is such a thing as a “good fit” when Papelbon is concerned.
Which is not to say that Papelbon, 35, can’t help a club on the field. He has a 4.37 ERA and 31/14 K/BB ratio over 35 innings this season, but was still effective in stretches this year.
