Foulke to see James Andrews?

Postby benjapage » Wed May 25, 2005 4:38 pm

from rotoworld:
Keith Foulke reportedly went to Alabama to be examined by Dr. James Andrews while his teammates were playing in the Hall of Fame game on Monday.
If an injury has caused Foulke's drop in velocity, the Red Sox have done a very good job of keeping it quiet until now. Foulke is denying that he went to be examined by Dr. Andrews, but his agent has told Boston Dirt Dogs that the closer ''was injured'' and that was the reason he did not make the trip to Cooperstown. May. 25 - 4:06 pm et


if foulke misses time, are we looking at mantei?

yeah, yes...

I would assume yes, but remember upon Schillings return the Sox have 6 qualified starters: Schilling, Wells, Arroyo, Clement, Miller, and Wakefield. I think it is possible one of them gets the nod.
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

Oh man, every time I hear Dr. James Andrews and one of my pitchers in the same sentence, I get a weird scary feeling! :-o :-o :-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Great. First Burnett, now Foulke.

Memo to Dr. James Andrews:

Stay the away from my staff!

Thanks.

Love, your biggest fan,

BB.

Maybe Wells as a closer? He doesn't walk anyone, and he's really struggling in the rotation. It makes sense to me....at least more sense than putting Mantei there. :-P

you're saying one of them gets the nod as a closer? hmm...are we on the same page, here?

i don't think any of those guys is closer-type, whereas mantei has done it for an extended period of time.

edit: mantei has yet to give up an earned run in may. in 1999 and 2003 he had ~30 saves. just throwing him out there.

yeah, yes...

yeah man. Mantei as your closer is a very scary thought.

Foulke denies it. It doesn't make sense for him to have arm problems. He doesn't throw hard, and he doesn't throw many breaking balls.

As soon as there's news on that please let us know! Thanks for the heads up...what about Wake as a closer? I'm guessing they need him in the rotation since Wells has been so bad. But Wake's done it before. He's doing pretty well as a starter though...
If you can help:

Thanks!!!
