Since the end of the 2007 season, the Oakland Athletics have traded a rotation worth of pitchers. Joe Blanton was dealt to the Phillies, Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin went to the Cubs, and Dan Haren went to the Diamondbacks. Now the A’s are looking to trade closer Huston Street.
The A’s are dealing their players and amassing prospects, which continues to be Billy Beane’s M.O. when the team is not in contention. Despite being tied for second place, the A’s are ten games behind the AL West leading Angels.
Possible destinations for Street include the Mets, White Sox, Dodgers, Brewers, and Reds. An Adam Dunn for Huston Street deal may not be out of the question.
