Are The Phillies Dealing Papelbon To Tigers?

According to Jim Salisbury of, the Phillies may be ready to deal former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon to a contender like the Detroit Tigers. Papelbon's $13 million salary might be too much to bear for a Phillies team that may not be good enough to contend in the NL East. While the Tigers just re-signed the very weird Jose Valverde, Paps would certainly fulfill part of that loopy quotient when/if Valverde fails yet again.
