The answer to the Giants Closer Curse: Full Circle

Or should I say, Circle Changeup:

Foulke bids Red Sox farewell, will try free agency

Ok, so this isn't really a curse, but since Robb Nen, the Giants have gone through:

  • Todd "My slider isn't sliding" Worrell
  • Matt "Witness Protection" Herges
  • Tyler "I throw hard enough to injure myself" Walker
  • Armando "Blownitez/Mando/Hands of Fate/Team Killer/Fat Bastard" Benitez
  • AJ "Dead Horse Beater" Pierzynski.  Yes, I know he's not a closer.
  • and the current favorites:

    Brian Wilson: See Tyler Walker.  Then again, he's already had TJ surgery.
    Mike Stanton: See Todd Worrell, from the getting old all of a sudden perspective.
    Vinnie Chulk:  See Todd Worrell, from the slider as out pitch perspective.
    Tim Lincecum:  You want to waste a prospective starter as a closer?  What are you, a Red Sox fan?

    What about bringing back Foulke, even though he didn't really pitch here?  We should be able to get him without overpaying like we did for the last closer who Shall Not Be Named. (Oh wait, I did that above).
