Theo and Tito have been advocating from day one that Foulke would pitch multiple innings, come in with the score tied and even with the Sox down one run. Before yesterday's pre-game radio interviews, the couple once again did shots from the Bill James Bullpen Efficiency Kool-Aid (boy that is a mouth full). Although, no one would have known seeing Timlin come in after Embree in the eighth on Sunday. I believe Foulke wasn't even warming up.

All indications are that Foulke wants to pitch more too. Briefly at the start of the season, Foulke was used in non-traditional closer's situations. So why isn't this happening now, Tito and Theo? And when is the mainstream media going to question the T-couple on not practicing what they have preached? It appears that Edes, McAdam, Silverman and company are following in the footsteps of the Wimpy White House Press Corps.

It is certainly the best time to fully implement the relief ace concept. It can be sold to the masses. The loss of Williamson and the recent inconsistency from Embree and Timlin should suffice as support for using Foulke in non-traditional closer situations. Now is the perfect time to fully implement the relief ace concept. It is the most productive way to run a bullpen.

Other Notes

• "This Fanny is for Manny" t-shirts are quite hilarious and ludicrous.

• Why is Red Sox Nation so pissed at Carl Everett? He always played hard and put up decent numbers. I guess you could fault him for playing hurt and getting suspended. I am forgetting something else?
