    Huston Street

    Since the A's are in full firesale mode, Huston Street is probably on the block. What would you trade for a young power arm like Street? If I could I'd probably trade...

    Cueto, Votto, LeCure, Valakia

    for

    Street.

    Beane traded away Haren for a large quantity of prospects, while Kotsay was dealt for one of good quality. This deal, kind of a mixture of both, could probably get it done. The A's line is going to need some thump down the line (Votto), while I'm not sure Oakland has a lot, if any, quality young pitchers, so Cueto and LeCure kind of fill that role. The A's I think at this point are primarily lacking offense, so if need be, you could probably close the deal by adding a type like Dorn or Francisco.

    Thoughts?
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    We might do a trade like that for a #2 starting pitcher, but I would not expect one like that for a reliever. Also, I believe Street is a closer, and I think we just signed one in Cordero.

    True, but I wouldn't call the BP fixed yet, and Street is an impact player.

    Our BP could actually be a strength if he were added.

    If Bedard's asking price is high right now, I would imagine Street's is just as high, if not higher. I like the idea of targeting some good pen arms, but Steet wouldn't be that logical.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Take out Cueto, and maybe. I'm not trading Johnny for anything but a number one starter.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    For a guy that will throw 60 innings!?

    I'd rather go after George Sherill if he is available because he would likely cost less, has a lower injury risk, and would be more open to a setup role...

    BAD BAD BAD idea. Two of our top prospects for an often injured closer. Not to mention the other two lower end prospects. If this were to ever happen, I'd personally go shoot WK.

    Re: Huston Street

    That's a bit of an overpay for a relief pitcher. Maybe for Street and Blanton and someone else.

    The A's and Beane have been successful because they don't trade AWAY prospects, they ACQUIRE them. My opinion, bad idea.

    From memory he's traded...

    Andre Ethier
    Bonderman
    Carlos Pena
    Harang

    all as prospects....

    I'm sure he's traded other impact players as prospects but I can't find a list anywhere.
