Jonathan Papelbon

  1. Papelbon peeved at positioning pertaining to potential game-ending play (The Phils lost again).

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Two issues with last night’s walkoff loss in Texas, the second night in a row the Phillies came up on the short end of a walkoff. The first issue is obviously Jonathan Papelbon. Putting inflated salary aside, he’s simply nothing close to resembling a shutdown closer to finish last season and begin the 2014 campaign.…

  2. The current Papelbon header on CSNPhilly.com

    … currently reads “Please Take Papelbon” and includes this nugget from Jim Salisbury who is down working the Winter Meetings in Florida: The club also continues to look to move closer Jonathan Papelbon. “They’re selling the [crap] out of him,” a representative from one club said. You may have heard rumblings that there are people…

  3. Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Dom Brown all available for trade apparently

    Word out of Major League Baseball’s winter meetings is no piece is untouchable for the Philadelphia Phillies right now, including the aces up general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.’s sleeve. Buster Olney for ESPN reports the Phillies would be open to trading either Cole Hamels or Cliff Lee, two of the three highest-paid players on the…

  4. Jonathan Papelbon’s ugly Christmas sweater photo is phenomenal

    Ugly Christmas Sweater parties have been going on ever since the Cosby Show first aired in 1984, so it’s safe to say we all have our own awkward photos wearing some horrid red and green sweater with snowflakes knitted into it — maybe a reindeer if you’re real dedicated. But I also think it’s safe…

  5. Philadelphia Fans Really Are Not Fond of Jonathan Papelbon

    The Phillies finally found a team they could beat on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park. Thanks, Chicago Cubs. It was a fairly entertaining albeit ugly game too. Darin Ruf attempted and failed to leg out a triple but later smashed a homer to make up for it which was fun for the South Philadelphia…

  6. Dom Brown, Cliff Lee to Represent Phillies in 2013 All-Star Game

    The results are in, and there are no real surprises here. Major League Baseball announced the participants for the 2013 All-Star Game on Saturday, and while no Phillies were voted in by the fans, two were deemed worthy of inclusion on the National League roster. For Cliff Lee, this is nothing new. The 2008 American…

  7. Phillies Outlast Padres in 13 Innings Thanks to Unlikely Contributions

    The Phillies might want to send Logan Forsythe a thank-you note. After all, the Padres’ second baseman did gift-wrap this game for them. Forsythe was charged not one, but two errors on the same play, allowing the Phils to score not one, but two go-ahead runs in the 13th inning. Jonathan Papelbon was able to…

  8. Dom Brown Delivers With Ninth-Inning Walkoff, Makes Jonathan Papelbon Very Happy

    Jun 17, 2013, 10:57 PM EDT

    MLB: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies

    This one had “bummer” written all over it. The Phillies scrapped to a 4-2 lead through five, and Antonio Bastardo cleaned up a Mike Adams-induced eighth inning jam to get the ball to Jonathan Papelbon in the 9th with a one-run lead still in tact. Pap’s perfect season looked to remain in tact with an…

  9. Report: Phillies Targeting Three Teams for Possible Papelbon Trade

    The way things have been going on the field lately, doomsday doesn’t seem too far off in the horizon for the Phillies. Ruben Amaro Jr. is readying the button. According to a report by Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Phillies have begun scouting the farm systems of three Major League teams that may…

  10. The Phillies’ Bullpen Is Still Terrible

    The Phillies lost 12 games that they led going into the eighth inning in 2012, which had they won even two-thirds of those would have been good enough to make the playoffs. So Ruben Amaro Jr. signed free agent Mike Adams, setup man extraordinaire, and checked one problem off of his list. Adams just picked…

  11. Phils Win, Dom Brown Tells Me Twice More to STFU

    May 29, 2013, 11:40 PM EDT

    Erik Kratz and Dom Brown go BOOM - 05/29/13

    Holy crap, Domonic Mordecai Brown. (His actual middle name is Larun, but I prefer Mordecai.) This guy is having a month for the history books, and in the process, he’s making the Phillies must-watch TV again, for the first time since they were actually, y’know, winning games. DomBro went yard twice tonight against the Boston…

  12. Jonathan Papelbon Reacts to Being Booed by Red Sox Fans

    May 29, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    pap-camo

    Perhaps it was against Charlie Manuel’s better judgment to remove Cliff Lee from a game where the 2008 Cy Young Award winner had retired 23 consecutive batters and only thrown 95 pitches. Regardless, Jonathan Papelbon got his storybook ending at Fenway Park on Wednesday – or part of it at least – mowing down the…

  13. Phils Win: Your Latest Picture of Jonathan Papelbon Screaming, an Encouraging Jonathan Pettibone Stat, and Some Dom Brown

    May 25, 2013, 11:48 PM EDT

    5-25-13-papelbon-AP

    The Philadelphia Phillies are now just one game below .500 following a 5-3 win over the Nationals on Saturday night. And for three hours, they even resembled a functional ball club. Jonathan Pettibone lasted six innings, the offense didn’t strand runners, scoring five runs on only six hits, and the bullpen got through two innings…
