    Papelmouth & Delcarmen seem to think they know what's best for the team. Time for them to STFU and pitch ... especially PapelMouth who has been a bit shaky this year. You have a chance to add a strong lefty to the pen ... and it's going to cost almost $4 million but worth it as Wagner has experience +++ .

    I think the claim on Wagner was a great one. For years we had that lefty 1 inning or less guy and we'll need one especially if we play the Yankees in a division championship. Wagner is no Gange. Gagne sucked before he came here and continued to suck after. Daniel Bard has been exposed a bit he needs more time ... we need more than Bard and Okajima at setup time.

    Jonathan Papelbon lukewarm on possible Billy Wagner deal - ESPN

    If Papelbon was pitching lights out I'd have no issue with his comments. As it stands he isn't pitching lights out so he should stfu and get on with it.

    At least Papelbon tells it how he feels.

    That is good for the team?
    How does Papelbon telling it how he feels a good thing here?

    Can you really disagree with what he said? Is another NL pitcher coming off arm surgery really a good idea?

    thats not the point. papelbon is a closer not a gm. stfu and pitch. he needs to worry about pitching not theos job.

    If Papelbon truly thinks he is one of the best closers, and should get a ton of money as a free agent, then he should have no problem bringing in an extra-arm. Any pitcher who knows he is great shouldn't be concerned that someone could compete against him.
