Corpas has earned and deserves the role as he's had the better spring, even though it was close.
We tell people and ourselves "spring training numbers are meaningless", so why would you expect a major league team to be stupid enough to weigh one month of spring numbers more than the past three years of Street's career.
There is absolutely no question that Street is the better pitcher than Corpas. If the Rockies want their best reliever closing games then it will be Street. If they want their best pitcher be utilized in the highest leverage situations regardless of inning, then Street will be doing that.
That is completely false. There is much doubt whether Street is the better pitcher. Corpas wasn't given a huge contract for nothing. In 07 he was one of the top closers in the majors for the month or two that he was closing. I'm much more willing to look at 08 as a fluke than 07.
