Are you really making this determination based on 1 IP by Street?


We still got all month, but id say it's Corpas right now. Streets 1 IP was pretty ugly. We will see..

Brandon Lyon looks an awful lot like Chad Qualls in his picture.

Nathan opts out of the WBC because of a shoulder issue. Seems like its more precautionary than anything else, but it's worth monitoring.

Only an injury should knock Gonzo from the perch. And if it does, he's likely to find Soriano has preceded him to the DL with a flexor bundle or some such issue.

May be old news, but info regarding Orioles closer situation: http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/base ... 1460.story

Manager Dave Trembley clarified the closer situation yesterday, indicating that George Sherrill is his primary closer. However, he also said Chris Ray, who was the team's closer for two seasons before getting hurt, will get save opportunities.

"There's no evaluation," Trembley said. "We're going to let people pitch, but I've pretty much said on record that George Sherrill is the closer. I've told him that doesn't necessarily mean that he'll get every save situation. We have the luxury of Chris Ray having done that before where he could get some of those opportunities."

So, basically don't draft either hoping for any consistent performance....
