FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING CLOSER NEWS: JONATHAN PAPELBON ASKS TO BE DEALT TO BLUE JAYS

Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon is not happy with the team after they failed to complete the rumored trade with the Milwaukee Brewers and instead has asked to be dealt to the Toronto Blue Jays.  With the Brewers re-signing Francisco Rodriguez earlier in the day to close games, Papelbon now focused in on the Blue Jays who still are without a proven closer.

Analysis:  This situation is starting to get ugly with the Phillies and Papelbon.  Clearly the Phils are rebuilding and have no need for Papelbon, especially with the very capable Ken Giles waiting in the wings.  Still they are being reportedly too greedy when it comes to how much money a trade partner has to take on in a deal which ruined the Brewers talks.  No matter where he ends up, Papelbon once again will be a top ten fantasy baseball closer.  Giles meanwhile should be drafted due to the high probability Papelbon gets moved.
