One run game: Francona is going to Papelbon over Foulke!

This could be a major devolpment.

Francona is going to deem Paps his closer yet, but grab Paplebon if you have the roster space!

Paplebon is looking great. I would not be surprised if Foulke goes on the DL soon with "knee problems"

I love the shot on NESN of Papelbon warming up and Foulke just sitting there in his sweat shirt. :-D

SHHHH don't mention those words in relation to the red sox.

Francona (to save face for Foulke) will say that Papelbon just came in because he was ready. And he pitches Foulke in another save situation. But i expect Papelbon to be the full time closer sooner rather than later.
