    Reds going after Houston Street

    According to the SF Chronicle:
    "Near-daily Huston Street trade rumor: The Reds apparently have some interest in the A's closer, according to sources, and the Mets also might make a run at trying to get him"

    this doesn't make sense to me unless the reds want to convert him to a starter.

    Must be a typo. Makes no sense whatsoever.

    I'm all for adding more quality arms. Don't know the reasoning unless they find a sucker to take Coco's contract.

    It seems like jocketty is just going after talent and is planning on putting the pieces together later. I dont know maybe he can trade cordero this offseason and get a decent return if he gets street to close.

    Reds Interested In Huston Street?
    By Tim Dierkes [July 23 at 11:50am CST]
    Up until today, the list of known Huston Street suitors included the Mets, White Sox, Dodgers, and Brewers. The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser tosses a new club into the mix: the Reds.

    It's an interesting development; the Reds are nine games out of the wild card. Of course, that didn't stop the Astros from making an acquisition. And unlike Randy Wolf, Street is under team control through 2010. On the other hand, Street could earn more than $5MM next year and the Reds are already paying Francisco Cordero $12MM in '09.

    For discussion's sake...would a Street-Adam Dunn swap make any sense? We know that the A's are lingering around on Jason Bay discussions. Dunn isn't under contract for '09, but he should be good for two draft picks. Walt Jocketty and Billy Beane matched up once before, on the Mark Mulder-Dan Haren deal.

    Would rather have Street than the 2 picks for Dunn

    Move Cordero to the Mets

    Re: Reds going after Houston Street

    Interesting name being thrown out there, and honestly, I like it. I've always been a big fan of Streets, even though he's had a rough time at things recently. Just think if we land him...a Burton, Street, and Cordero 7th, 8th, and 9th. Throw in Lincoln and Bill Bray and we have the best bullpen in the majors. And honestly, I really don't think we'd need to throw in any of the fab four.

    Maybe a Frazier, Valakia, and Stubbs for Streets?
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    How about Bailey and Stubbs for Street?

    Re: Reds going after Houston Street

    Isn't there some speculation out there that his arm is wearing down? He hasn't had a single strikeout in his last 4 appearances (5 innings), has been pretty bad in July, and not much better overall in '08 - with an ERA over 4.

    I want the draft picks.

    Might as well throw Volquez and Bruce in there as well.

    Re: Reds going after Houston Street

    Acquiring Street only makes sense of the Reds are willing to trade Cordero at some point. They can't afford both once Street hits arbitration, which is next year.

    But I love Dunn for Street.

    Dunn for Street? No thanks.

    Hell, as I type this, Dunn just went Big Fly - the Grand Slam variety.
