Jason from (not mine, his) brings us this news out of Beantown...
Jonathan Papelbon has always made it clear that he will do whatever it takes to make the Red Sox a better team. If that means giving up his dream job as a starter, then so be it.
So, is the closer situation resolved in Boston?
 | [Boston Herald]
The Boston Red Sox signed closer Jonathan Papelbon to a one-year contract on Sunday, with undisclosed financial terms.
The 26-year-old righty dominated the hill last season, going 4-2 with 35 saves and a 0.92 ERA. He converted 19 saves in the first two months of the season, getting his 35th save on August 31st - the day before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.
As the runner-up for the American League Rookie of the Year award, Papelbon is ready to make the transition to the starting rotation this spring, joining Josh Beckett, Curt Schilling, Tim Wakefield and Daisuke Matsuzaka as one of the starting five.
