He is the 7th or 8th inning guy for this season, and will not be closing for the Red Sox any longer.

For this season they are. i watched the ESPN Hot List interview with Francona a few days ago, and he said Paps is the closer.

GF is games finished I take it? Well in that case, Boston will not want to pick up that option, so they'll make sure he doesn't finish 53 games this year. Theo wasn't born yesterday though he may look like it.

If Foulke returns to form, he'll probably regain his job. Paps may be in the rotation come August.

Edit: This is silly. The Red Sox have the second highest payroll in the league. If Foulke returns to form, you think a measley $8 million is going to keep them from having him close games? Sorry.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
