This from Fox Sports, and I just heard this!
"Right-hander Keith Foulke, the leading candidate to be the Indians' new closer, is retiring, FOXSports.com has confirmed.
Foulke, who signed a $5 million free-agent contract this off-season, experienced physical discomfort and questioned his desire to continue playing, according to a source.
His decision, first reported by Cleveland.com, leaves right-hander Joe Borowski — who signed as a free agent this off-season — as the front-runner to be the Indians' closer."
Peter here. Keith was not the nicest guy, but he as much as ANYONE was responsible for our four game sweep of the woeful Cardinals, and he should have been the MVP of our magical 2004 World Series miracle. And that's exactly what it was!!!!!! To borrow a line from Paul McCartney, it was a Magical Mystery Series......and we won! Going away!!!!!! And that made us stand up and cheer. And you know what? It will happen again...I KNOW it.
