Wagner. Dotel will get his job back when he returns from the DL

This is an interesting question. I went with Street.

Would like to see what others think. :-?

have any of these guys even recorded a save yet? right now, i'd go with wagner because he'll will begin closing on a fulltime basis before street gets the gig to himself. i'm quite sure the a's will go back to dotel until they trade him at the deadline.

I would say Street because the Reds seem to have zero confidence in Wagner. I'm also convinced that Dotel will be gone near the deadline.

No idea. Street longterm most likely, but it might not be until Aug 1 before Street assumes the role (if then) and that is a long way away. 2 months of even committe saves from Wagner is worth a whole lot more. OF course Wagner could flop of god forbid, they give the job to Weathers.

I'd go Wagner now...... Street longterm.

Street is only gonna get a few weeks now, and then will give up his job to Dotel... and of course Dotel may go no-where @ the trade deadline.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

Why do you think the Reds have zero confidence in the guy? He leads the majors in holds because they DO have confidence in him to preserve leads.

They obviously DON'T because if they did they would have brought him into a 5-3 game to close instead of Weathers.
