H. Street?

Street only got drafted in our league because the guy that drafted him is from Texas. He may be THE closer someday, but he's not right now and that's what counts.

I think that HAWGVIKE is Street's agent. Taking prospect hype to a new level.

Do you remember how great Greg Swindell was supposed to be?

Swindell had a couple of good years before he made it home. I was a little disappointed with what happened after that.

I've seen Street pitch quite a few times, Disch Falk is 2 miles from me, but to compare him to Gagne is insane.

Street is a legit reliever, if he has the mentality he can be a great closer. Although 88% seems a bit high, I wouldn't be surprised to seem get the job. Dotel has been inconsistent in the past, and there isn't much to be lost in dealing him with such a solid prospect waiting to step up.

just thought i'd be the first to let everyone know...those who arent in dynasty leagues that is...


This guys sounds like a stalker. 8-o

You get on the cafe when you get hammered? Why? :-o

I agree on the makeup thing. High pressure situations are a little more intense in the Majors than in AA.

o wow

the Huston Street craze has started.

Calm down buddy, he isnt going to be the A's closer anytime soon. The only way Street will be pitching the 9th inning for the A's this season is if Octavio Dotel is traded.

and I can guarentee he won't be traded anytime soon. There is a chance he will be traded at the deadline, but if the A's are doing well then that probably won't happen.

Even if Dotel is traded the A's will probably look at both Calero & or Cruz to finish out the year as closer, and have Street pitch the 8th inning.

Street has a ton of potential (to call him gagne is a bi ridiculous), Im sure he will mold into a great closer and a top fantasy closer in the coming years but just not anytime soon. ;-D
