clearly? no. take out street's first couple of outings this spring and he had better numbers than corpas. there's also the fact that corpas' velocity is down due to some tinkering with his mechanics. i didn't see either of them pitch, but having followed the box scores for the last couple of weeks, it's been very close, but street has actually had the edge recently.
Ok so it is not a clear win for Corpas if you take out the first half of ST and also ignore some of Corpas' results because his velocity was slightly down in getting to those results. Got it!
Street > Corpas when he is healthy. 8 IP in Spring Training doesn't mean crap.
I don't disagree. But if Hurdle and company feel the same way as we do then it isn't an open competition. There is nothing open about it and it can barely be called a competition if one guy is chosen despite not pitching as well. I already said I think they SHOULD go with Street but open competition + the numbers they put up in Spring = Corpas closing. The open competition BS was likely just to push Street a little IMO. Honestly, why would you sign a guy for one year/4M if you weren't going to 1. use him as your closer or 2. showcase him and trade him.
