I've heard that Keith Foulke lost the closers job for the Sox. Anyone know who may be taking over for him?

found this at rotoworld:

Osuna and Damaso Marte will split saves until Keith Foulke irons things out. Osuna, who missed last season with a torn labrum, is worth a pickup in AL-Only leagues. Wait and see how things play out before picking up Osuna or Marte in mixed leagues.

Ok, I also did some research on this as well. Here's what I found:


Keith Foulke has lost his closer's job, manager Jerry Manuel announced. Antonio Osuna and Damaso Marte will begin to get save chances.
Manuel said the switch is only temporary. On one hand, it's ridiculous that Foulke is losing his job. He's blown just two saves all year. On the other hand, this is an effort by Manuel to get Foulke more work, which should be a very good thing. Foulke has two saves in three chances since April 26, and he was not pitching enough to stay sharp. A few two- or three-inning outings should benefit him. We'd be surprised if Osuna and Marte combined for more than three or four saves before Foulke gets his job back. They're worth picking up in AL-only leagues, but don't expect much. Foulke still has value in all leagues.

I agree that this will be very temporary. Will it light a fire under Foulke? Maybe; it certainly seems worth a shot. If Foulke is dropped in any leagues, snap him up.

He managed to pick up a win yesterday and didn't give up a run in about 2 innings, so I can't complain about that. I have a feeling he will be back soon, and I just can't bring myself to drop him, even though I have Wagner, Percival, Beitez and Guardado as well.
