Phillies | Jonathan Papelbon unlikely to be dealt

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon is unlikely to be traded by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. "I can't imagine anyone taking that contract of his and giving Philadelphia pieces back," one rival executive said, basically echoing the sentiments of several who were asked about Papelbon. Papelbon's name isn't being thrown around in trade talks right now. He's interested in going back to the Boston Red Sox, but the BoSox don't seem interested. Also, he's gained a reputation for not fitting well in the clubhouse, which won't help his trade value.
