Paplebon's brief starting career

Well, it seems that the Red Sox will be announcing today (according to ESPN) that Papelbon will be back in the closer role.

I really think this makes sense for the Red Sox. I'm not sure who this makes their #5 starter, but in April you can usually get away without using a #5 too often, and that might be long enough to get Lester ready.

I think they needed to do this because that bullpen really was going to be a disaster. I was looking forward to it.
