Keith Foulke: pain in the neck

Keith Foulke has landed on the DL with a stiff neck, but the A's haven't made another move yet to replace him. The A's are at eleven pitchers already, so it's not clear that Foulke's replacement needs to be a pitcher. Still, I'd guess the replacement will be 6'6" lefty Jerry Blevins, who pitched for the A's last year and is currently in Sacramento. He'd probably only be up until Justin Duchscherer is ready to come off the DL, but that should give Bob Geren a chance or two to throw him into some games and see what happens.

Can I just mention, by the way, that the A's are 12-8, tied with the Angels for first in the West and a game behind Boston for the best record in the AL? Awesome.
