During their meeting with the media, owner John Henry and Tom Werner had the following light-hearted exchange about the closer spot:

Werner: "Well, we donít have one today, but hopefully weíll have one soon."

Henry: "I thought we had one today."

Werner: "Well, you said we did."

Henry: "We do have one, I guess we just canít tell you who that is. It hasnít been announced? No closer has been announced? ... You canít always believe what you hear."

You hear the rest of Henry and Werner's press conference here.

Separately, in an interview with the Globeís Gordon Edes that will air on NESN tomorrow night, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said that Jonathan Papelbon remained among the team's many options at closer.
