Keith Foulke Joins The Red Sox Organization

Keith Foulke, like many of past Red Sox hero’s, will join the organization as a Development Consultant. He last pitched in the majors for the Oakland Athletics back in 2008.

Nostalgia runs rampant within the Red Sox organization, as Pedro Martinez, Tim Wakefield, and Jason Vartiek all work in some capacity with the team. You can add one more 2004 Red Sox player on that list, now that Keith Foulke will serve as a Minor League Player Development Consultant.

It was clear that closer by committee was not an option, which was evident by the 2003 year. The then GM, Theo Epstein, signed Keith Foulke and the rest, as the kids say, was history.

Without the acquisition of Keith Foulke, the Red Sox probably would not have won their first World Series in 86 years. Obviously there were more factors in the 2004 championship year, but Foulke was vital.

Despite being more of a finesse pitcher, Foulke collected 32 saves in 2004. Although his regular season statistics were awesome, his biggest accomplishment was throwing 14 innings in the post season, while allowing just one run.

After 2004, he dealt with injuries, realized he really loved the sport of hockey, and fizzled out. Regardless, he will forever be immortalized in this city.
