    too soon to say. depends on what kind of a year he has and his asking price.

    Re: Would you sign Papelbon to a new deal?

    Based on what I have seen over the last two years I am not comfortable with Bard as the closer.  I don't think he has the mental makeup for it yet.  He doesn't seem tough enough.  Paplebon has looked great this year.  Much better than last year but its still early.  Plus, I wouldn't break the bank for Pap.  You know he is going to want the world.  Good closers are hard to find though.  Soriano isn't lighting it up for the Yankees.

    I wouldn't say "yes", but I couldn't say "no."


    I might say "maybe", though.

    A lot of people take it for granted that this is Papelbon's last year in Boston, and Daniel Bard is the closer of the future. Are you comfortable with that idea, or would you like to see Pap remain the closer for the long term?

    I would, the guy is a good closer.  I don't even know why there is debate, I mean if he asks for MEGA bucks that is one thing but who wouldn't want him as their closer?

    Re: Would you sign Papelbon to a new deal?

    niz,

    I agree for the most part. I'd say three years, $39M-$42M tops. That would average $13M-$14M a year. $10M a year likely won't get it done if he has a great year. $12M a year might, but it will depend on the market.

    I'd rather keep it under $40M for three years but I wouldn't quibble over a million or two (it's not my money). I think it will depend on the market.

    If he wants four or more years, let him walk. And if he wants to average $15M, let him walk. 

    I'm not sure what someone might offer on the open market. I don't like guessing because I'm always surprised (Jayson Werth, for example).

    I am hoping the Sox do not and Paps goes to the N.L. As a Yankee fan, I would be very happy to see him leave.

    I don't even know why there is debate, I mean the guy is a proven commodity.  If he asks for insane $ that is an issue but I imagine they can negotiate with him and that he would like to stay with Boston.  Like you Jessey I'd love to see him in the NL or even pull a Johnny Damon and then I won't mind his staredown on the mound.

    Uh Johnny....MikeyinQueens is not a Yankee fan he's a Sox fan pretending to be a Yankee fan.......you're a little slow on the uptake but that was sarcasm earlier.

    Closers are overrated and overpaid. Too much money for a guy who maybe pitches 40 innings a year.
    I'm for the complete game pitcher. I thought that's why most teams went to a 5 man rotation in the first place.

    Re: Would you sign Papelbon to a new deal?

    IMHO this question won't be answered until after the season. Papelbon has gone year-to-year never entertaining an extension so he could get the max contract that can be obtained by going into the FA market and letting supply and demand drive the value of the contract.

    Being this far down the road and pitching well early, there would seem to be no reason for Papelbon to sign an extension now. So it will be a wait and see situation .

    BIG difference between Damon and this skirt wearing jig dancing egotistical clown.

    Re: Would you sign Papelbon to a new deal?

    No need to answer this question today. 

    If Paps keeps this up though I'd give him a 2 year/28 million dollar deal.  I know it'd take 14 million and I am not comfortable going more than 2 years with him no matter how well he pitches this year...On the other hand, who is going to replace him at this point?  So maybe give him an incentive-based option year......Anyways, no need to do anything now.....
