    Huston Street a Red Sox possibility...

    ... according to this tweet from the Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo:

    http://twitter.com/#!/nickcafardo/status/136919621344309248

    Whom could the Red Sox trade for the 28-year-old closer whose contract has one guaranteed year at $7.5 million and one option year at $9 million?

    I would give them Dice-K and that's it. Isn't this one of reasons how we ended up in this position? Trading away prostpects for mediocre talent. Might as well sign a FA like Madson for that $$$.

    i wouldnt mind huston street. In fact i would prefer him to any of the free agent closer.(k-rod and bell were close) I dont think he would cost much either.

    Ryan Madson, who is three years older than Huston Street, would require more years and more money per year.

    Not a bad option but a little expensive.  If we need insurance that Bard can't do the job I say go after Street.  If we think Bard is the man then don't waist your time or money.

    Rockies are looking for 3b and starting pitching.  How about Lowrie and Doubront for Street and a minor league RH OF prospect?

    I personnally would prefer either Madison Avenue or Santa Fe Blvd.

     Isn't it weird that the Indianapolis Colts have guys named Dallas Clark and Austin Collie?  Maybe they can get (San) Antonio Pierce to come out of retirement. Perhaps there is front office position available for Amarillo Slim?  Ole Miss just fired head coach Houston Nutt.  They could start calling their plays in Spanish, this play is a La Run and this one is an El Paso.

    How about righthand-hitting Colorado outfield prospect Kent Matthes?

    I suspect the Rockies would get a better offer for Huston Street than Jed Lowrie, who turns 28 years old in the opening weeks of his first (more expensive) arbitration season, and a 24-year-old lefthander coming off a disappointing season.

    It's $7.5M v the $44M Philly allegedly offered?

    I think most baseball people would rate Bard over Street.

    I don't mind Street as a set up man , if the Sox want to pay him for that role.

    In argueably his worst year last year, in the hitter frenzy Coors Field, Street had a career high 3.86 ERA with 10 homeruns. His strikeouts have been constansty around 1 per inning over his career, but his walks have decreased steadily since 2008 from 27, to 13, to 11, and to 9 which is a very key stat. I would deffinitly pursue him and hopefully he can fill into a role like Keith Foulke once had.

    It's not the hitter's park it used to be. (6 of the 10 HRs were on the road.)

    Mediocre talent like Adrian Gonzalez and Victor Martinez?

    You'd begin to think so if the only Sox baseball you knew came off this forum.

    Coors I think has the largest OF, meaning most actual OF space of any park in baseball.  So while it is true it is no longer a HR factory, there are still some advantages to the hitter. 

    I agree with you that Bard/Street is way better Bard/Jenks. 

    The problem to me is not the money, 7.5 for next year is fine and it is not a long term commitment but the problem is what would Street cost the Red Sox in prospects?  Or is this the makings of a Youk deal?

    Could Twitter be less informative? 

    I don't get how professional journalists can use it and take themselves seriously...

    Point is why give up players for Mr. Street when you can get similar talent for the price? We should also learn relief pitchers, while they are needed, seem to be the least reliable off season acquisitions (see: 2010 Sox bullpen).

    Here's a novel idea: strengthen the rotation.

    Notin: good point on the Gonzalez and Martinez trades I should have specified the mediocre talent has come via FA signing rather than trades.

    Why?  Street has been a very good ML closer.  Bard has never closed.
