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.
