Phillies Papelbon Would be Disappointed if he is not Traded
Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon's name was the subject of many trade rumors this off season. The closer ranks second all-time with 100 saves in Phillies history says he was not disappointed that he wasn't dealt this winter - but that would change if he is still here this summer.
"I will be disappointed if this continues to happen," Papelbon told Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com. "If we continue to lose (I'll be disappointed), but if we can rebuild this situation and make it right, and we can get some wins under our belt, and Ryne Sandberg can get us going, that's a whole different story."
Papelbon has been nearly perfect this season, notching three saves, a 0.00 ERA in 6.1 innings of work. He has given up just one hit and struck out six, giving him a 0.16 WHIP in 2015.
So add another name who wants out - but will the Phillies find a taker?
