    Keith Foulke?

    Should this guy be considered as a free agent pickup? Anyone have any info on him?

    Has been a past closer coming off injury. I don't think he would be an option here. I think he wants to go somewhere on the west coast to be closer to home.

    Could be serviceable. Minor league contract and an invite is as far as I would go.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    With the Giants close to signing Gagne, Foulke's options could be limited.

    I don't see much of a future for him. What TC says would seem likely in other years. The way things are going this off-season, though, maybe KC will offer him 6 years at 7 million each.

    You got that right. I saw him pitch on TV a few times last year. After he got a few innings under his belt his changeup really came back. His velocity was still suspect.

    Isn't he in the same boat as Milton (no cartilege in his knees)?

    IIRC, he is a TypeA free agent and the Sox offered him arbitration.

    No. Unless as Team Clark suggested it was on a minor league deal.
    We already have a bunch of ok but not great relievers.

    No, he's a type B. I honestly don't have a clue what whoever signs Foulke will wind up with, but there were real signs of life last season, he was pretty dominant in April and in September, either awful or on the DL the whole time in between. I don't know if his knees are totally gone, but he sure didn't pitch like it in September. FWIW, I buy that he wants to be closer to his son out west, and I'd be surprised if he'd take a minor league deal anywhere rather than just retire, but that's just my impression. When he's healthy, he's a blast to watch pitch. And he does seem to own Jim Edmonds.

    I could have swore I read somewhere that he wouldn't be healthy to start the season, but I can't find it...

    I hadn't heard that. He seemed as healthy as he'd been in 2 years or more to finish out last season.
