Jonathan Papelbon has signed with the Philadelphia Phillies and, for the first time since 2006, the Red Sox are searching for a closer.

Daniel Bard is essentially Boston's best internal option, however, he is by no means a shoo-in for the closer role, with confirmed reports of preliminary contact with free agents Francisco Cordero and Heath Bell
