Captain Obvious Arrives in Clearwater

Papelbon to return to Red Sox bullpen as closer

I could never figure out why they waited this long, or by whose logic putting Timlin in the spot and moving Papelbon into the starting rotation made any sense. As a rookie Papelbon was a monster coming out of the bullpen, and the injury worry reasoning was idiotic; put the kid on a strict, intensive offseason workout regime, dial it down but keep him on it during the season (and don't overwork him) and the problem's fixed.

Timlin wasn't gonna bring the fear to anyone trotting in from the bullpen looking to slam the door. The kid? Totally different story.

I wonder how long it will take before I loathe seeing Papelbon's face?

this pretty muchs seals the deal of "Clemens to the rescue" when Tavares blow goats as 5th starter....

Your damn right, this makes things (cue Artie Johnson) velly intelesting. when it comes to the Rocket. Clemens and those Kendricks brothers of his have to gotta just.be.loving.this.

I can hear Mount St. Steinbrenner beginning to rumble....
