Unless something major happens I can't see Foulke back in the closer role with his physical problems, velocity problems, and general lack of ability to pitch period. He didn't show much last year in his attempts each end of the DL stint and he hasn't shown anything in his innings yet this year.
Honestly does anyone think he has anything left of value for the sox or a fantasy team? This all sounds like desperate talk for people in desperate need of some kind of closer, go and get orvella or soriano if you're that hard up, they'll close sooner than Foulke will.
Foulke returning to the closers role and papelbon moving to the rotation has pretty serious implications for a lot
of fantasy teams. Yes it's speculation, but it's educated speculation. If you don't speculate at all and just wait until something actually happens, by that time it will be too late to make any moves to benefit your fantasy team (in this case, Foulke will have been picked up and Papelbon's trade value will have plummeted).
