Jonathan Papelbon Interested in the Yankees

If any of you reading this ever had a middle school or high school crush you know one thing is more true than anything else you have ever known in your life. It takes two to tango. You can be interested, you can even borderline on obsessed, but that doesn't guarantee that the "one made for you" would even know you existed let alone also be interested in you that way. This brings me to the delusional one, the one closing games in Washington. Jonathan Papelbon.

Papelbon has a limited no-trade clause written into his contract and can block trades to 17 teams around the league. Those teams are the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Atlanta Braves, the Baltimore Orioles, the Cincinnati Reds, the Colorado Rockies, the Chicago White Sox, the Houston Astros, the Kansas City Royals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Miami Marlins, the Milwaukee Brewers, the Minnesota Twins, the Oakland Athletics, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Seattle Mariners, the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays.

One team name not listed, the New York Yankees. Papelbon is interested in the New York Yankees, let's hope the interest is not mutual. Friend zone this guy, and now.


  1. He actually removed the Yankees from his list, they were on it in 2015. I would chip in money to have him add the Yankees back just to be sure he never dons pinstripes.

    1. Yes, New York was on his no-trade list for 2015. You are correct there. Wonder if he had a change of heart or if he goes merely random on his choices. I mean he can't have a vendetta against 17 teams all at once... can he?
