Closer Report, Week 17: Pap Smears Storen’s Value

All the fantasy world was hoping that Jonathan Papelbon would be traded to a team without a reliable closer.  Instead, he goes to a team and kicks in the door swinging with the "I make more money than you" swagger that only comes with wearing Jordache jeans.

Braves dump risk, exchange it for risk

A valuable lesson we all learned yesterday is that a trade isn’t official until it’s officially official. In the case of this trade, it still isn’t totally complete, so, who knows?

Should the Boston Red Sox exercise team option on Clay Buchholz for 2016?

The Boston Red Sox are expected to exercise the team option and bring back starting pitcher Clay Buchholz for the 2016 season.  But is it the right decision?
