Huston Street in serious pain after getting the last out for his save.

He was running to cover the bag and pulled up lame..had to be helped off the field. Not sure how serious it is yet, because it just happened.

Saying Achilles, lots of speculation his season is done

Gregersen worked the 8th tonight and has been better but tough to 100% say it's him

note - I went Gregerson myself on teams I had roster space on (only own street in one) just because he has gotten the 8th inning call as of late but even then I wish I had more roster space to add thayer as well just to be safe

Street says "calf strain - has to be re-evaluated in the morning" better that the initial speculation... for now

Thayer got a string of saves earlier in the season.

Yes thayer got saves earlier when he was pitching well thats why I stress cant say 100% gregerson, thayer started playing worse though

I hope that's it...I can't lose another closer...I'll be left with the Mariners and Astros closers...which means 0 saves.

Henderson available in your league? Whatever rope Axford had left for another round with the job has to be on fire at least he just gave your boy Lopez the W

SD: Earlier in the season when Street went down for a month or so I recommended Thayer over Gregerson. Reasoning being that Gregerson's control was off and Thayer was looking pretty good. At this point it looks like Gregerson has regained his control and is back to his 2010 ways. Still, he's struggled mightily with the closer role throughout his career (career 14% SV%) while performing extremely well in the 8th. I think you have to go with Thayer again.

MIA: It's still Cishek in Miami until Bell strings up a couple saves in a row (and he will be given the opportunity to do so). And even then, it wouldn't surprise anyone to see Bell implode and Cishek regain the closer role.

SF: Affedlt over Romo in terms of save opportunities as Romo can't pitch as often due to durability issues. Romo is freaking ridiculous though so he's worth owning regardless.
