I'll take Calero. Hope his injury isn't serious.

they'll be grooming Street so I think Calero or Duke will be the 7th innning guys while Street gets the 8th.

Actually if anybody has the "8th" with a lead its Calero. He will also come in during the highest leverage situations considering he's our most reliable man in the pen. Meaning tie games with runners on base, should do wonders for his win totals.

Duscherer will finish with more IP. He's more of a long relief pitcher. With Calero out and Juan Cruz's struggles, Duscherer has been playing the rolle of a set up man lately...that wont last. Plus he wont strike out guys at nearly the same rate Calero will.

I'd rank the A's bullpen as far as fantasy value (in 5x5 scoring) something like this:

1. Dotel
2. Calero
3. Street
4. Cruz
5. Rincon
6. Duscherer
7. Keichi Yabu

Somebody fill me in about Calero's injury. I haven't heard anything about it and he is on my team.
