Papelbon can block deals to the following clubs: the Athletics, Blue Jays, Brewers, Diamondbacks, Dodgers, Giants, Indians, Marlins, Orioles, Phillies, Pirates, Rangers, Rockies, Tigers, Twins, White Sox and Yankees. The league’s remaining teams can acquire the controversial veteran without his approval.
More likely that he figured they wouldnt want him back after the way things ended, so might as well not waste a spot putting them on the list. It's like getting 18 spots for the price of 17!Interesting that the Red Sox are NOT on Jonathan Papelbon's no trade list. Not that the Sox need or want him, but you'd think he had some hard feelings and would want to extort some extra money out of the Sox if they did trade for him.
Nava + Gentry for ~$2.5M = fair left fielderNava to Angels on a one year $1.375 million major league deal.
Shocked he got that, I was expecting a minor league deal, ST invite and about $900K if he made a team.
