Looks like the Red Sox lost their closer.

Jim Salisbury is reporting that Jonathan Papelbon has agreed to a four-year deal with the Phillies. The deal is reportedly worth roughly $50 million.

For the sake of comparison, Rafael Soriano chose not to opt out of his contract, which pays him $25 million the next two years. Obviously a good — and easy — decision by Soriano.
