Jonathan Papelbon

The Philadelphia Phillies continued their off-season moves with the signing of closer Jonathan Papelbon to a 4 year $50 million deal. Papelbon is a 4 time All-Star and has 219 career saves. The Phillies' starting pitching is formidable and with a closer like Papelbon who has a career 2.33 ERA & 1.02 WHIP the Phillies will now have a better chance to win games that they may have lost in past years with Brad Lidge or Ryan Madson closing.
