    Having finally earned his way out of the Purgatory that is the Red Sox, Keith Foulke has gone to a better place… that Great Green Ballpark in the Sky.

    The words engraved beneith the stained-glass window read, “St. Keithius – Patron Saint of Blown Saves”

  3. Sarah Green says:

    After crunching the numbers, watching hours of video, and completing a detailed psychiatric evaluation, the Red Sox coaching staff was still stymied by Keith Foulke’s bizarre implosion after the 2004 season. But then, a bat boy happened across this photo, clearly showing that Foulke had been pitching under the influence of a supernatural phenomenon known only as the Evil White Aura of Doom. Knowing that there is no counter-jinx for the Evil White Aura of Doom, the Red Sox had no choice but to decline Foulke’s 2007 option.

    It’s one thing to worship David Ortiz, but Keith Foulke?!

  5. I must say, great picture of Sheff bitching out ARod, and ARod – in typically ARod-ian fashion – displaying some very effeminate body language.

  6. Sarah Green says:

    Actually, the scary thing about that photo—-that *is* indeed Sheff’s happy face. According to the caption of the story I lifted it from, A-Rod and Sheffield are “celebrating.”

    But without that knowledge, it definitely looks like Gary is tearing Alex a new one, and a fearful Alex is responding by nervously dropping a random batting helmet.

    Alternatively, it looks like Sheffield flung his helmet at A-Rod in disgust, and Rodriguez effeminately threw up his palms in self-defense, as if to start a slap-fight.

    On second thought, this could have been a great write-your-own-caption. Oh well!

  7. “He’s still a feared hitter, but his body is in decline and he’s basically a dried-out husk of his former self. He’s just days away from his 38th birthday. The Yankees were wise to move him while they could still get something for him.”
