Brewers Moving to Huston Street?

The Brewers have already gone big with the Sabathia trade, but why stop there? According to the most powerful name in Brewers news, Tom Haudricourt, the Brewers are looking at acquiring Huston Street. Melvin's top assistant, Dick Groch, is in Yankee Stadium this weekend to watch the A's take on the Yankees, and he is presumably looking at Street.

Street, 24, is 2-3 this season with a 4.07 over 38 games. He's saved 17 out of his 21 chances. If we made this move, Street would more than likely slide into the closer's role, while Salomon Torres would slide back to 8th inning duties. What's the better option right now Gagne/Torres or Torres/Street?

It's no secret the Brewers are looking at a bullpen arm, and even though there have been reports about Giants lefty Jack Taschner, Prince made him look stupid last night. That, and if the Brewers are going to make a move, we've seen that they're going all in, not settling for a guy like Taschner.

I guess I don't really see this move happening, but I would have never imagined CC Sabathia in a Brewers jersey at the beginning of the year, either.
