New Phillies pitcher shacking up next door to Cliff Lee

    They pitch together, and now they’ll be living together. Well, next door to each other.

    The Philadelphia Business Journal reports new Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon has purchased a condo in Rittenhouse Square — in the same building as fellow pitcher Cliff Lee.

    Papelbon joins us from Boston for a four-year deal. He’s trading his $3.1 million penthouse there for a $4.65 million condo in the 2-1-5. It’s a small dent in his $50 million contract.
