ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to various baseball teams. The team Boston Red Sox's bullpen could be outstanding if closer Keith Foulke makes a successful recovery from knee surgery. The team San Diego Padres might want to think twice about starting catcher Mike Piazza against the team Los Angeles Dodgers. Dodgers' Rafael Furcal and Kenny Lofton each stole six bases off Piazza last season, the most of any opposing baserunners.
