Just in case you were still hanging onto Foulke...

The closer role will depend on how Foulke does. If he regains form (and there have been signs that he is on his way), then he will become the closer regardless how good Papelbon is.

Does anyone think that Pappy will be rested today because he trew over 30 pitches last night?


Schilling throws today so I do see the chance for a save opp...but I just might bench him because I think that Pap might be given the day off and someone like Timlin or even Foulke might be the closer for today.

to be fair to Foulke, he did get through one inning....but he did not make it out of the second inning that he pitched without being touched...

interesting that paps had a relatively rocky outing--how does he rebound? what will happen when he actually has a couple rough outings? how will he/the club react?

too early to drop foulke, methinks. and me has been thinking about it for a couple weeks. arrghhh...

yeah, yes...

Keith Foulke pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning with a strikeout last night, but said prior to the game that the benefits of the Synvisc injections he received in his knees during spring training have begun to lessen, as he's feeling some of the same aches he felt before the injections were given.

Foulke said there's nothing he can do except push himself while his knees heal naturally, though one orthopedic physician with familiarity of the procedure said the injections can be repeated.

Foulke said the knees are ''still feeling uncomfortable." He said the good feeling he had in the knees not long after the shots has ''regressed over the last three weeks."

''There was a lot of benefit to it for a while and I was really excited about how I felt," Foulke said. ''There's no doubt I have a better range of motion than I did. Now it's back to the point where they're bothering me again."

Foulke is not worth holding on to if you are doing so thinking he's taking Pap's job.

Great post ;-D . Just thank the good Lord if you drafted Paps in the late rounds of your draft, that you got a 45 saves guy for a bargain bin fantasy draft pick. Foulke owners, please don't hate on the Paps owners for Paps taking Foulke's job and running with it.

I still think Foulke regains his job if he's pitching well in a month or two.

Great. I dropped Paps for Baez after Gagne went down. At the time it was a good move (and quite frankly, the only player I could drop was Paps). It can still pan out as a good move....but right now...I am kicking myself!

You must be, I think I've read about that Baez for Papelbon move from you in about 3 different places now. :-b
