Despite recommendations from four doctors against it, Octavio Dotel has decided undergo Tommy John surgery.
''Octavio does not feel he can pitch with the level of pain he was pitching with,'' A's trainer Larry Davis said Thursday. ''Everybody's tolerance level is different. Octavio feels like he's tried long enough. ... He's been throwing a long time and is tired of recurrent tendinitis.'' Some will question his manhood, but with Dotel eligible for free agency at the end of the season, he could have tried to tough it out for a few more months and then undergo surgery next year after getting his next contract. Now he'll have to take an incentive-laden deal this winter. Huston Street should remain Oakland's closer for the rest of the season.

Cross him off the list of potential relievers the Sox could look at for help. Beane won't be getting anything in return for him now. Just another steal for Billy Beane!

Ouch. Thankfully the A's, I'm sure that Huston Street will be great in the closer role. Pick him up now in any fantasy league that he's available in!(Neither of the WSI leagues of course :(:)

A few seasons ago, I think KW might have done the deal anyway.
