    I'm thinking this is a great pick-up for the Sox. The guy threw smoke a few years ago. They say he's slowed down each of the last two years, but he was injured last year. I like this signing.

    Lighting a fire under Papelbums ass ... it's about time.

    This article is a great read ... Theo doing his homework here:

    I read a recent article, maybe the Herald, which basically said Pap is gone next year. He will be a free agent looking for a long-term mega-bucks contract. Supposedly, the Sox don't give those out to closers. Jenks thus, is being groomed for the set-up job.

    Pap could have a good season left in him if he gets around to remembering that he once had more than a fastball. But I don't blame the Sox ... it's a roll of the dice but overpaying for a closer is nuts.

    Paps, Bard, Jenks gives them some great late inning options.
