Who is most likely to get the bulk of the saves in Oakland for the rest of the season?

Street. They're in no rush to get him back in the roll but he's made it clear he's ready and even though he's pitching MR he's pitching against the heart of the order usually.

street might be saying he is ready, but that doesnt mean they are ready to use him as a closer. i hope its street since i have him, although i am trying to decide someone i can drop to grab embree. that way i have oaklands saves covered no matter who closes.

they have been saying street will close for 2 weeks now. i think i'd give it another week or week 1/2 before he becomes closer again. they will not put street back as closer until he can pitch back to back nights.

If Streets string a couple of good outings together, then I'm sure they'll give it back to him.

even though embree blew it, street gave up an ER in the 8th, and embree pitched well in the 10th

what do you think the timeline is on embree giving way to street as the a's closer. i know it'll end up happening within the next week or so, i'm just wondering if its safe to drop embree at this point, since he may only get one or two more saves tops.

I wouldn't read too much into last night's outing. Street came in the 8th -- so he's apparently not yet taken over the closers job -- and gave up an ER. Embree came in the 9th and he too gave up an ER. Not the greatest night for the A's bullpen all around. Street will surely get back his job, the only question is when, but it appears the team is not (yet) ready to make the switch, esp when Street has had some struggles getting back to form and Embree has generally been very effective in his fill-in closer role.
