    Huston Street??

    This would be a horrific turn of events. I would lose faith in Jocketty immediately.

    Briefly: 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. ...

    Doesn't make any sense, given the current state of the Reds, but who wouldn't want Huston Street going into next year (and beyond)? Seriously!

    Quality is important.

    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.

    For us to land Huston Street it will take this type of package to land him:

    1)Votto and Frazier
    2)Votto and Thompson
    3)Bailey and Stubbs
    ---too much to give up for the guy IMHO--and frankly he would make our pen resemble the nasty boys of 1990, but we need the above guys more than another luxury in the pen!

    The Rauch trade set a rather low market. I'm sure it was the best the GM could do.

    Terrible, terrible idea -- unless they think they can flip him.

    The guy's had arm problems off and on -- what could they be thinking?

    Want nothing to do with Street. He has been getting pounded lately. Definite injury risk.

    Gotta keep pace with the Astros...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    This is odd.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    And people complained about Krivsky collecting bullpen guys.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    If Street can be gotten for Bailey or Bailey plus one of the Reds' overrated bats (Soto?), you have to make this deal.

    I can't believe all the pooh-poohing of acquiring a guy like Street. I'll guess it's because it's a potential Jocketty move as opposed to a Wayne move.

    He'd be by far the best pitching pickup of this deadline if acquired.
