Homes of Baseball’s Top Players for 2012


- —

Jonathan Papelbon's Home -- Boston, MA

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher

Status: Listed for sale - $3.1 million

They loved him in Boston -- at least until he insulted their baseball knowledge -- but what happens to the brash closer Jonathan Papelbon when and if he blows his first save opportunity in Philadelphia, home of sports' most notoriously "difficult" fans? Well, the 31-year-old righty signed a four-year, $50 million contract with the Phillies in November, the richest for a reliever in baseball history. The four-time All-Star has converted 30 or more saves in six consecutive seasons and has earned his monster contract, so maybe he's not sweating the Boston townhouse penthouse (above) he's leaving behind, along with his Red Sox teammates. Papelbon's Boston home is listed for sale on the Boston real estate market for $3.1 million (above). See more photos of Jon Palelbon's home.

Adrian Beltre's Home -- Los Angeles, CA

Texas Rangers third baseman

Status: Listed for sale


Sometimes, things just work out great. And that's been the case for Adrian Beltre. The All-Star third baseman signed a 5-year, $80-million deal with the Texas Rangers last year and took home the Gold Glove and the Silver Slugger award. This year, the 32-year-old is batting No. 3 and has assumed the leadership role with the young squad that has come close to World Series glory, but may need the extra push of a seasoned vet. So, with his stature high in Arlington, Beltre has put his Bradbury, CA mansion back on the market for $19.5 million. He's tried to sell it before, since the former Dodger has since played with Seattle and Boston before moving to Texas last season. See more photos of Beltre's home.

Mark Teixeira's Home - Westlake, TX

New York Yankees first baseman
