2001 Review

Writing this review is difficult because all I remember is June 26th, 2001. The game in the Hump Dome where a game winning triple was hit off Foulke, the ball hit that ugly ass baggy in right field. With closers all you remember is the saves they blow.

So let's say positive here. Foulke in 2000 had a career high 34 saves, in 2001 a season where the Sox won less games, he had 8 more saves. Keith managed to lower his era as well in 2001. From 2.97 in 2000 to 2.33 in 2001.

The main eyesore on Keith's record was 9 losses. Foulke had 3 blown saves in 2001, the other losses where from games where he was brought in with the score tied, or when he was brought in for more then one inning.

2002 WSI Wiz predicts!
The Wiz knows Keith Foulke is the most-talented pitcher in Jerry Manuel's bullpen.  Unfortunately, the Sox manager doesn't consult the Wiz.  A few rough outings with control problems gives Manuel the excuse he needs to try a lesser talent in the closer role mid-season.  The experiment is a disaster and Foulke reclaims his rightful spot where he shines once more.  The Sox will receive numerous offers from teams interested in acquiring Foulke for their stretch drive at the pennant.  Will the Sox accept?  Don't ask the Wiz; ask Kenny Williams.
