Is Jonathan Papelbon Headed North Of Border?

Toronto Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos was in attendance at a Spring Training game this week. Not surprising, right? Except it wasn't one in which his team was participating. Anthopoulos was behind the plate at a Phillies-Yankees game—presumably to scout disgruntled Philadelphia closer Jonathan Papelbon. The Jays have previously hinted at an interest in the former Red Sox closer and could be close to a deal that brings him to The Great White North. When Pap was informed about the GM's presence, he stated (characteristically), "Huh, interesting."
