One of the biggest position battles set to take place in Cleveland ended before it even started. Keith Foulke and Joe Borowski were contending for the spot, but now it appears Borowski will take it. Foulke, who was the favorite to get the closer role, was set to make a guaranteed salary of five million dollars. Whether he retired because of injuries or because he had enough, Foulke will go down as one of the key players that brought a World Series to Boston in 2004. Foulke has a career record of 41-34 with a 3.30 ERA and 190 SV with the White Sox, Giants, A's, and Red Sox.
