    Indians/Cavs/Browns flagship station WTAM just announced Keith Foulke will announce his retirement.

    And Joe Borowski just became a very popular player in AL-only leagues.

    As an Indians fanboy looser, I frequently visit a Tribe message board. Some random guy posted that he was in a golf tournament in Arizona with Foulke, and that Foulke had said his elbow was hurting him and he wouldn't be ready for spring training. Of course, this poster was roundly ridiculed. After all, why would Foulke tell some perfect stranger about his personal medical condition?

    Score one for the message boards, I guess.

    He and that changeup made a big difference in 2004. Good to see you don't always need to throw 95+ to close.

    And this is worth a separate thread...why?
    There's a hot stove thread for minor news items like this.

    Because it's Keith (mf expletive) Foulke.

    You mean fifth, because the Royals are going to get much better this season. [/hopelessly optimistic :D ]

    When the Royals opened 10-35 last season, that included a 5-4 mark against the Tribe. So yeah, KC can still beat other lousy teams.

    I disagree. An All-Star closer and member of the 2004 BOSTON RED SOX!!!!!!! retires, it deserves its own thread.

    Second-best player on that team that October, barely behind Ortiz. Without Foulke, the Sox are 0-for-87.

    It seems that effort though, basically ended his career. I'd wonder if he'd say it was worth it.

    Cuz it was almost 12:30 a.m. EST when I heard it on the radio, close to deadline for any paper remotely interested, and I figured maybe nobody knew!

    Maybe the Tribe should stop trying to squeeze one more year out of these broken down horses. At least they got one at-bat out of Juan Gonzalez two years ago!
