32-year old righty closer Jonathan Papelbon has been amazing so far this year for the Phillies.  Papelbon has pitched in 24 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-0 with 13 saves, a 1.46 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP.  He has given up 14 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 23 batters in his first 24 2/3 innings so far this year, which is pretty amazing.  He has now pitched in 94 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-6 with 51 saves, a 2.19 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP.  A lot of people scoffed when the Phillies signed Papelbon to a big contract, but he has been worth every dime and then some so far since joining them.
