Hard to say. Street will definately close again but with Embree getting the job done the team seems in no hurry to make a change.

how do we know for sure Street will get the job back from Embree? Drew Bledsoe never got the job back from Tom Brady...lol, nice analogy huh? :-B

A's RP Alan Embree recorded the final three outs of Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Rangers for his 14th save in 17 opportunities. He rebounded after blowing Monday's save against Texas. Embree walked one batter Wednesday and did not record a strikeout.
(Updated 08/09/2007).
FANTASY ANALYSIS
Embree had retired the last 22 batters he faced over his past seven appearances heading into Monday's blown save. He was right back on the wagon Wednesday. He now has three saves in August. Embree's job as closer appears to be safe for now despite the hiccup on Monday. Continue to use him in all AL-only Fantasy leagues and larger mixed formats.



I guess Street will get the job back once Embree has another rough inning or two. :-?

I dropped Streets weeks ago. But now I have Rivera, someone on my team dropped him for a SP so I guess it kinda works out.

Mariano Rivera? Somebody dropped Mariano? Kick that person out of the league immediately. Or give him a hug in your case.

Word on CBS is that he'll be put back in the closers role once he can pitch back to back days. Any idea when that will be? I need saves and want to drop Bonderman for him...
