Jerry Remy: Jonathan Papelbon ‘Comfortable’ With Deal

Jerry Remy: Jonathan Papelbon 'Comfortable' With Deal Spring training is only a few days away for the Red Sox, and NESN color commentator Jerry Remy can’t wait for Boston to get another crack at contending for a title.

The RemDawg called in to Tuesday’s edition of SportsDesk to chat with John Chandler about all of the Red Sox’ preseason storylines, including closer Jonathan Papelbon‘s satisfaction with his contract situation.

“I think he’s comfortable with the one-year deals — it seems like he has been that way for the past couple of years,” Remy said. “He knows as well as everybody else that Daniel Bard could be a closer of the future, but I don’t think he worries about that right now. I think he’s very confident in what he’s able to accomplish and has accomplished for the Red Sox, and I think he also knows he’s one of the elite closers in the game and his day will come to make that elite money.”

Boston’s spring training schedule begins with a matchup against Boston College on March 3.
