Huston Street On the 15-Day DL, Again!

Huston Street On the 15-Day DL, Again!

First off, it’s not like any of us didn’t expect this.  If fact, I drafted Andrew Cashner in all three leagues I drafed because I figured that Huston Street would be injured at some point this season and eventually traded. His first stint on the DL for 2012 is due to a strained latissimus dorsi muscle.  Yea, I wish I knew exactly what that muscle is.  Street will be on the DL for 3-4 weeks … Read entire article »

2012 Player Profile: Huston Street, San Diego Padres

Lindstrom Notches 2nd Save, No Worries For Street

Matt Lindstrom has been pitching well this season and since last Saturday the Colorado Rockies setup man has two saves in as many chances.  In six innings of work, Lindstrom has a ERA of 1.59, a matching WHIP, and four Ks.  He entered today’s game after Huston Street was having problems ending the game versus the Mets. I’m not even sure why Street was pitching today.  He has saved games on the 10, 11, … Read entire article »
