Papelbon Speaks Out on Long Term Deal and Jason Veritek

by @ 7:40 pm. Filed under 2009 Season, baseball bat, baseball equipment

Jon Papelbon is fresh off of his one year, $6.25 million deal but he’s recently come out and said he’d like to talk about a long term deal.  He admits there’s risks but then he also said he liked rolling the dice.  At this point, the hope is the Papelbon keeps putting up the numbers like he has the past few years and then everything will take care of itself.

Papelbon also gave a nod to his catcher even though he might not be with the Red Sox this year.  I like that and I hope the Red Sox do sign Veritek.  It just has to be at a fair price.

I can’t believe it’s the end of January already.  It’s cold, but it’s not to early to be thinking about softball and little league for the kids.  I know my son is anxious to try out his new baseball bat that we bought him over the holidays.  We got it at a great one stop source for baseball equipment, Baseball Rampage.
