The Nationals Are Kind Of Boning Drew Storen

The Washington Nationals just made a trade that should help fix their biggest weakness—the back end of the bullpen—by bringing in Jonathan Papelbon to be the new closer. Papelbon will take the job from current closer Drew Storen, who will slide into a set-up role and give the Nats a great 1-2 punch at the end of… » 7/29/15 11:36am Wednesday 11:36am

This Moment Of Phillies Ineptitude Brought To You By The Bullpen Phone

How bad were the Phillies against Baltimore tonight? So bad they had to bring in Jeff Francoeur to pitch. Except that Francoeur couldn’t get anybody out, so pitching coach Bob McClure tried to call down to the bullpen to get a real pitcher up.

Jonathan Papelbon Talks Horses And Dick-Sucking Holes

Whenever the Red Sox and Phillies play, someone sticks a recorder in Jonathan Papelbon’s face and uses his thoughts on both teams as an angle to get through the series. (Shane Victorino just isn’t as brash.) Before Wednesday’s game, the Phillies closer was direct to the Boston Globe about his connections to the Red… » 4/09/15 11:15am 4/09/15 11:15am
