PAP channels his inner BAILEY as he blows his first save!

He gave up one run one hit a HR and he got the Win when they scored in the 9th ERA 1.75.
You make it sound like he gave up 3 runs, walked 2 and gave up 3 hits far from 2011 or a channeling of Bailey.
Paps is still an ELITE Closer and will be for many years to come despite too many here focusing on one year with 7 BS.
I have said this when he was not signed RS will have closer issues for 5+ yrs. Paps when all is said and done will be one of the top 3 closers EVER. There are 3 active closers with more saves and in the case of two he is 3 to 5 yrs younger and only 40 behind them. He will never come up to Mariano's records but will be second or third IMHO
Love the Red Sox and enjoy the ride every year
