One man we didn't get to see in yesterday's unfortunate opener was Jonathan Papelbon. So at least the slate is clean for his community projections--the final one of the bunch.
Papelbon's effectiveness could possibly make or break the pen this year. While Daniel Bard (Opening Day excepting) and Bobby Jenks are expected by most to have solid campaigns, it's hard to say the same for Papelbon. And with most other members of the bullpen being far from sure things, it would be pretty big to have that third solid option in late innings instead of the mess we saw last year.
