Foulke Finished..Lyons Coming?
The Boston Red Sox will not exercise its $7.5 million dollar option on reliever Keith Foulke. Foulkie has until Friday to decide whether or not to exercise his own option. The thought process has him leaving to pitch for a team nearer his home in Arizona. If Foulke decides to pick up his option and stay with the club, he will be paid $3.75 million. (plus the $1.5 million dollar buy-out. That makes it $5.5..not bad!!) I think he's headed out. We will know by the end of this rapidly diminishing, no more political advertisements week.
Entercom, which owns the Red Sox radio rights, maybe be close to hiring Steve "Psycho" Lyons to replace Jerry Trupiano. That would be a shame. As of now, nothing is definite. Trupe was/is a great radio voice for RSN, and I wish I knew more as to why he's leaving.
Happy "HUMP" day as we start our slide into the weekend. Don't get any splinters!
