(And Don't You Come Back No More)
"Keith Foulke would apparently like to call it a season, but the Red Sox aren't so willing to give up hope that their beleaguered closer can salvage something from his trying year."
"Foulke flew to Boston yesterday to have his aching left knee examined by Sox medical director Dr. Tom Gill and made indications, according to several sources, that he wouldn't pitch again this season. The team, however, didn't necessarily agree with the self-assessment and has arranged a meeting with the pitcher, Dr. Gill and general manager Theo Epstein to reach a conclusion on the matter. Results of the medical examination weren't released."
"There were indications last night that the Red Sox were counting on Foulke to be at Camden Yards tonight for the first of three games vs. the Baltimore Orioles."

"A source told me that (Foulke) was completely infuriated after Friday's interview on WEEI and that he is absolutely fed up with the media, the fans, and city of Boston in general. My source went as far to say that Foulke has essentially closed the book on this year's season and simply wants his Boston nightmare to end." -- 9.19, Jeff Guinee, Beantown Chattah -- FSN New England
