DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of trade market do you see for Chase Headley, Seth Smith, Quentin and/or Huston Street? Once the Padres realize Cashner need TJ they will probably be in build for the future mode.
(fahlstrome from San Diego)
Not future-changing on any of those guys. I understand why they held onto Headley when he was at the peak of his value, but I'm guessing they'll look back on it with - if not regret then at least wishes that they could undo it with hindsight. (Zachary Levine)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I'm in a 14 team, 6 keepers per team league with traditional 5x5 roto scoring. We also get 20 minor leaguers who can be kept for 3 free years once they pass 120AB/50IP. I'm being offered a deal of Jose Reyes, Aramis Ramirez and either Huston Street or Eddie Butler for David Wright and Matt Lindstrom or Alex Gonzalez. Is the injury history of Reyes/Ramirez too much? Should I not give up the best player in a keeper league? Or does the quantity outweigh those concerns?
(oscarbluth from Madison, WI)
If you can only keep 6 players, I keep the Wright side. If you think you can win it all this year with another closer and some speed, then pull the trigger and pray for health. (Ben Carsley)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Prediction for Tiger's closer in 2 weeks and after 7/31. Feel free to complain about Valverde!
(Cliff from New Hampshire)
Oy, it's really tough because the market is thin. San Diego's run takes Huston Street out of the equation, at least for now. I'll take a stab and say K-Rod. Speaking of stabbing, where's Valverde? (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Will need 3 pitchers for next week in 5x5...main need is saves but can use all categories...Suspects are Lyons, Gregerson, Jansen, Maholm, Turner, Tillman, Vargas...WW has guys like Phelps, Westbrook, Kendrick, Norris, Straily, Lohse, Gee, McCawthy, Archer...Suggestions please!
(LittleRon from WV)
If you need saves, keep an eye on the news regarding Huston Street (who is ready to begin a rehab assignment) and Brandon League (who might not be long for the ninth inning). Depending on the headlines there, either Gregerson or Jansen could take one of the three spots.

For the others, without taking the time to look closely at matchups, I'd roll with Paul Maholm and Dan Straily (who I believe will face the Mariners at the tail-end of the week, albeit with a start in Texas earlier). Also, I'd recommend checking out Paul Sporer's SP Planner on Friday for more info. (Daniel Rathman)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should I really gird my loins for a 32-130 Padres season? My loins can't take that kind of girdin'.
(Clyde from Pittsburgh)
Hey Clyde, thanks for the question. Coming into the season, the Padres had four or five legitimate big-league pitchers. Two of them (Edinson Volquez and Huston Street) have been terrible. Even after Sunday night's strong showing from Clayton Richard, their starters own the NL's highest ERA by a lot. It will be good to see Chase Headley back in the lineup this week, but his presence won't help a bad pitching staff. Unless the Padres find some guys who can get big-league hitters out, it's going to be a long season. (Geoff Young)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you expect Headley to make a run at an All-Star spot in 2013?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Yes, Alex, I see Headley making a strong bid for an All-Star spot. He should have been there last year but the powers-that-be anointed Huston Street the Padres' obligatory representative. They won't repeat their mistake... I hope. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are the chaces that Dale Thayer becomes the Padres' closer this season? Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
If Huston Street is traded at or before the deadline, as expected, Thayer probably returns to that role. Luke Gregerson is a better pitcher, but his platoon splits against left-handed hitters (.413 OBP against this year) are a concern when you can't play matchups. Assuming Bud Black doesn't go to a committee, Thayer has a strong chance of seeing more save chances down the road. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which closer do you take for 2013-2015, Huston Street or Addison Reed? Is it close?
(Luther from Toronto)
Yes, it's close. I'll take Street, although it's unclear where he'll be pitching next year, much less next month. That said, Reed is a young, largely unproven (albeit talented), flyball pitcher in a hitter's park, so he's no sure thing either. (Derek Carty)
2012-05-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)As a fan should I see Huston Street thrives on the mound before mid-season and exchanged for a package of prospects or should I hope a street named after Streets? You are welcome to answer in Fantasy Baseball perspective.
(Padres Fan from Not SD)
I think the Padres would be wise to reap whatever value they can if Huston is healthy near the deadline. They have little need for a top closer this season, especially one that is making $7 million. That said, fans are likely to be disappointed by the return (Doug Thorburn)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Huston Street finish the year as the Padres CL? Who would take his spot should he get hurt?
(Johnson from MN)
Yes. Cashner probably but look it up somewhere before you act on that. (Sam Miller)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brad Boxberger the Closer by the end of the year? Any chance he starts the year in the Bullpen? Thanks
(jake1m from Jenny Lind, Ca.)
Boxberger will compete for a spot in the bullpen. Whether he makes the big club out of spring training or not, he'll see material time with the Padres in 2012. I'm not sure he'll be the closer. If Huston Street is traded at some point, I'm guessing that Andrew Cashner or maybe Ernesto Frieri would be next in line, although Cashner's health and Frieri's control raise questions. (Geoff Young)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I a bad person to be rooting for Huston Street to have another setback in his rehab? I'm a Manny Corpas owner in desperate need of saves.
(One Flap Down from Clearwater, FL)
We've all done some things we're not proud of as fantasy owners. Unless you're actually rigging traps in his place of rehab, you should feel the same as always. (Marc Normandin)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Let's assume for arguments sake that O'Down lets Marquis walk, trades Hawpe for a prospect and non tenders Atkins. That would free up nearly $20MM for 2010. Where would you spend that money? I guess 2B is an obvious upgrade spot, but beyond that, I'm not sure O'Dowd could spend that amount money effectively in free agency. Maybe they could allocate it to the draft and Venezuala?
(Dan from Denver)
It's never that simple. Betancourt's on the books for next season if they pick up his option, so that's a big chunk of change ($5+ million). Huston Street's arb-eligible, so is Jorge De La Rosa and Chris Iannetta and Ryan Spilborghs; all will get raises. Tulo's salary goes up a couple of million; so does Jeff Francis' and Manny Corpas'. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't go big-game hunting, beyond seeing what they might get out of a Hawpe deal, whether win-now help or a prospect with near-term value on the big-league team. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)There is precedent for the closer for big bat trade, i.e. Huston Street for Holliday
(bchak from NM)
Except Street is not Soria and it wasn't a straight 1-1 deal, at all, so it's not a real precedent at all. (Eric Seidman)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Eric, you're a bit ornery today (especially considering the pizza). I'm just saying that it's almost as ridiculous to rule out any potential trade out of hand as it is to propose ridiculous trades (like Soria for Howard, for example). Could Soria be packaged with someone like Gordon for a "big bat"? Of course it's possible, but unlikely given KC's history and finances.
(bchak from NM)
Not trying to be ornery, apologies if the tone came off that way. It just seemed you were suggesting that because Huston Street was part of a multi-player deal for Holliday that Soria could be traded for a big bat, in sort of a 1-1 fashion as the original question asked. (Eric Seidman)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Speaking as a Mets fan to an A's fan, what do you suppose it would realistically take to pry Huston Street from Billy Beane's far-from cold, dead hands? And do you think Street poses the best solution to the Mets bullpen woes (from here he seems to be a better solution than paying retail rates for K-Rod and/or Fuentes, or wishcasting on Putz to be healthy)?
(wrightfan5 from MD)
I think you can expect Beane to hold out for the best bits in the organization, but I really doubt that the Mets would deal Fernando Martinez for Street, and if I'm the A's, I don't need or want guys like Mike Carp. Danny Murphy's interesting, but basically this would have to involve a lot of low-level pitching to make it worthwhile. I suppose it depends on whether or not consecutive humiliations at the hands of the Phillies adds any additional impetus; at some point, Omar's going to be the guy taking the blame for failure. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Doesn't it make more sense for the Mets to trade Fernando Martinez than keep him? The window for this team is NOW and by the time he would be ready it seems like the window would be closed. Isn't this a rare case where it's better to trade the future for today?
(josher464 from NYC)
I can accept that argument, but the real problem then is what is it you want to get with Fernando Martinez? Huston Street? That's a waste of resources; better to just burn money and sign K-Rod if that's your play. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Hey John, Is there really a lack of interest in Huston Street, or is Oakland thinking they can get more for him in the offseason?
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
The Athletics are willing to trade him but, justifiably, they want a lot back. If they can't get it now, they'll wait until the winter. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-30 12:30:00 (link to chat)Will Linebrink's injury force the Sox to acquire a reliever?
(Jim from Chicago)
They are looking harder but it won't be a huge deal. I know Huston Street's name keeps getting mentioned but I don't think he's headed to Chicago. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Does anybody want Huston Street?
(John from SF)
Mrs. Street?

The market's pretty thin given what he was worth just a year ago, which is a bit of a surprise. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)To my (untrained) eyes, Huston Street has looked terrible lately. His delivery looks like it's all upper body/arm. (Maybe that groin problem is still bothering him?) Do you get the sense his value is down to the point where Beane won't deal him?
(mgibson from DC)
Well, the latest Mill will be up in a few minutes, and Will has something to share on the subject. I'm worried, but that's on the more basic level of fandom, and my sense is that it isn't affecting his value in trade, especially with so many teams on the hunt, and so few "Rauch for nothing" deals available to them. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)OK, as a Sox fan I would love to see Huston Street on the Southside, but what on Earth do we have to trade for him? Nothing, thanks Kenny.
(Doug from Chicago)
Josh Fields is being brought up in that context, and that doesn't sound so terrible to this A's fan. Yes, it's a weakly-stocked system, but if you decide to plan on using some of your playoff revenue to re-sign Joe Crede, Fields is just a prospect on the hoof waiting to be converted into something you can use. Given this team's core, no time like the present. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Carroll- thanks for your time. Anything to the rumors of Huston Street being next to go from the A's?
(Dave from Buffalo, NY)
There's rumors but mostly smoke, no fire. Lots of rumor about bad scouting reports recently, but we'll see. (Will Carroll)
2008-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think the Rays will end up with if the asking price for Nady remains high? Matt Murton? Nelson Cruz?
(Tommy from OPS,FL)
Gabe Gross and Matt Murton would make an interesting set of corner guys, especially if they can steal Huston Street in the deal too. (Marc Normandin)
2008-03-26 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is Josh Fields making a run for the top 15 picks in the draft? Is any team looking for a future closer? Maybe Oakland as there is some talk of Huston Street being on the trade block.
(Tom Collins from St. Louis)
Fields has been absolutely dominant this season, and I think he has to have some early first round appeal. He's a senior, so he might be a bit cheaper, so maybe the Mets draft him at 18 because they have another pick shortly after. But he's also a guy that a potential playoff contender could draft with the hope that he pitches in September. He's that good, and he's that ready for pro ball. Oakland at 12 seems a bit high for me, though, given that he's just one year removed from some nasty command issues. (Bryan Smith)
2008-01-25 13:30:00 (link to chat)How much more trade activity do you see coming from Oakland before the season starts? Does it make sense, in your mind, to hold onto any of Blanton, Street, Ellis, and Chavez until the trading deadline and then deal them?
(Geoff from Chicago)
Billy Beane has said the stated direction is to get back to the point the team was at just prior to their 2000-2004 run with a stable of prospects that can position them for the next 5 to 7 years.

Given that direction (and since Beane accumulated 9 prospects in the Swisher and Haren deals and so it looks to be working) it would seem that all of those in your list except Huston Street, who at 23 is several years younger than the rest of the bunch, would be candidates for turning over for prospects. That said, since they're not planning on being competitive this year it doesn't seem that would need to deal any of these guys before the season starts and could wait to see if something better comes along.

The value of Chavez, unfortunately, is probably at an all-time low (three off-season surgeries and they're not sure he'll be ready by spring training) but Ellis (SFR loves him) and particularly Blanton would certainly be attractive to a lot of teams right now. So for Chavez I would assume that they would be hoping he gets off to a hot start and then find a taker (like the Phils?). (Dan Fox)
