I don't have a definite answer, but I just picked him up in both of my leagues.

With the Red Sox holding a one run lead against the Rangers,
Jon Papelbon was called upon to close the game. He retired all three batters he faced, striking out two, to earn his first career save.

That manager Terry Francona has already elected to go with Papelbon in a save situation is telling. He should be claimed in all formats where he's still available, as this is not a good sign for Keith Foulke's health.

Well, Tito trusts Pap and he don't trust Foulkie. This is a major managerial decision. And he made the right one.

I grabbed him in two leagues (he was already taken in another one), and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Takes bold moves to win championships, right?

It was rotoworld-speak, and he color-coded the editorial rotoworld uses. I recognized it instantly.
