Former Texas reliever [tag]Huston Street[/tag] has reportedly been traded from the Oakland A’s to the Colorado Rockies in a deal for slugger Matt Holliday (who also happens to be the son of former Texas pitching coach Tom Holliday.) The deal hasn’t been finalized but appears imminent.

The 2005 AL Rookie of the Year saved 18 games for Oakland last season but had none in the final two months of the season as rookie sidearmer Brad Ziegler came on. Colorado is expected to lose close Brian Fuentes to free agency opening a spot at the end of games for the former Horn. Despite being headed to the thin air of Colorado, the chance to be the number one guy in the bullpen makes this a opportunity for Street.
