a 'closer' look

first of all, I love the A's. I loved watching and listening to 'em this season, and though I wish we were in the playoffs now (and I'm sure the guys feel the same way), I'm not going to bash anyone. We're all still stinging from the early demise...

now, here's a 'closer' look, pulled from a quote on ESPN in Gammons' latest column, regarding why Boston is going to win it, and referring to closer Keith Foulke...

"He hasn't pitched as well since Labor Day," said one scout. "But he's still a quality closer. Hell, if Oakland still had him, they'd have won about 105 games."
