Is it wrong to ask if people see a deadline looming for Foulke? I know management can't say anything, but what do you think they're thinking? He can't blow one in four saves all year...
Is this an ok post to ask this question in?

No, it's not wrong to ask that question. I don't think anyone can answer it since no-one knows what management is thinking, and I don't know that management actually has a deadline, but your point is well taken: if Foulke continues at his six era pace, his days closing are numbered. If Foulke's numbers are the same two months from now, he will not be the Red Sox' closer - but I don't know that he won't turn it around, and if he doesn't I don't know when a change will be made.
