J. Rincon, Otsuka or Street?

Which reliever do you expect to put up better numbers this season? This includes holds.

I'm not talking in the future, I want to know your rankings of these three for the present.

What are your projected stats of these guys? Remember that I'm curious about holds also.

Otsuka, then Rincon, then Street. I don't think Street will get as many holds as the first two will, and he's also unproven.

Otsuka- 3 ERA, high 1.1 WHIP, a tad more than a K an inning...about
Rincon- high 2's ERA, 1.10 WHIP, more Ks than Otsuka
Street- mid to high 3's ERA, 1.22 WHIP, about a K an inning

It's fairly hard to predict holds, but I think all three will end up with fairly similar amounts...they're all on teams that have good pitching but average offenses (other than Minnesota, who's pitching is only above average outside of Santana), so I think hold opportunities will definitely be generated. And all three are going to be winning teams. I'd probably take Rincon over Otsuka, because I think hitters will get more used to the latter, especially with his eccentric delivery.

I think Street by far over Rincon and Otsuka. The guy's a young Brad Lidge, and whereas there's little chance of Minnesota or SD closers being traded, there is a chance that Oakland's will, if only because Beane loves a firesale.

Rincon, Otsuka in that order.

Street is a legit guy. I was very wary when his velocity dropped in his last college season, but it's back to 92-94 now and that slider is a killer. If you're going aftre one of these guys hunting for saves, then Street might be worth a gamble. But me, I'd rather have what I feel is a sure thing setup guy, and Rincon is probably the best guy in all of baseball in that role currently.
