On ,December 13 2003 — Keith Foulke (9-1, 2.08) signs a three-year, $21 million contract with Red Sox. The 31-year-old All-Star closer had a league-leading 43 saves in 48 chances for Oakland last season.

Foulke will have a fantastic 2004 Season saving 32 games with a 2.17 ERA in 71 appearances. In the playoffs, he pitched in 11 games, and over 14 innings he gave up 1 run, a solo homerun to Larry Walker, during game 3 of the World Series a 4-1 Red sox win. As great as so many Red sox were during the 2004 Playoff season, Foulke could be considered the MVP of all 3 series. He was the rock at the end of every game never failing. It came at a price as he has never the same pitcher after 2004.
