A's Sign Keith Foulke

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the A's have brought Keith Foulke back on a one-year deal with incentives.  He gets $700K and can earn an additional $2.5MM in incentives.  Foulke, 35, saved 43 games for the '03 Athletics before leaving for Boston.  The D'Backs made an offer this year, but I guess the A's offered more money or a better role.  An impressive 20 teams watched Foulke work out in January, though he was throwing in the 81-84mph range.

Foulke apparently looks like his old self to the A's after pseudo-retiring and taking '07 off.  One can definitely see him sliding back into his familiar closer role if Huston Street and Alan Embree are dealt.
