Did you really want him out on the hill after throwing 49 pitches last night, and getting rocked? There's a half a dozen threads on this already. Check them out in the future before starting another new one.

I'm sorry but I'm with bigh0rt, to many people come on here right after a middle reliever gets a Save instead of the closer and there like "D00D, did so and so lose there job, OMG", lol !+)

It actually looks like Fouke could lose his job to Arroyo when Schilling returns. If this is true, if you have a free roster spot (and Arroyo is available) you might want to stash him.
BTW This comes from WEEI (Boston sports radio)

I'm not really sure where I got excited, and needed calming down. I pretty much answered your question, and gave you advice for future posting. I'll be sure to put on my kid gloves next time, I guess.

hey i don't like it when people do what i did either. obviously i didn't know i was doing it, and there's a way to handle it. either ignore it or leave a link to another post answering the question. the link is self explanatory. no need to get pissed at the person. and the foulke situation is a bit deeper than just a middle reliever getting a save. since i was unaware at the time of foulke's blow up last night, i thought maybe they had just had enough of him and something had actually happened, not just a random day off or something and that was my question. as i said, i see why you got annoyed, i do too when people do what i did, but you can handle it without being a dick about it. i usually agree with your posts when i see them hort, so i don't want to start anything here, but i think you were out of line with that one. maybe its because i was on the recieving end of it, but that's my opinion.
