For Huston Street, Yankees fans should root against Rockies

The Rockies are on a 11-game winning streak, but are somehow still below .500.  However, the closer they are to playoff contention, the less of a chance they will be willing to deal closer Huston Street.

Street is one of the best relievers that has been talked about as the trade deadline inches closer.  In his first season in the National League, he’s sporting a 3.00 ERA and has 32 K in 27 IP.  However, he has only allowed two earned runs in his last 19-2/3 IP. 

Street has 13 saves for the Rockies so far, but if he became a Yankee, he would move to the setup man.  He’s also only signed to a cheap one-year deal, so that would not complicate the trade process.

The Rockies are 10.5 games behind the LA Dodgers in the NL West, but only 3.5 games out of the wild card.  We are still a month and a half away from the deadline, so it is unclear whether the Rockies will be buyers or sellers.  Hopefully, the Rockies will go back to their losing ways and Street will be wearing pinstripes.
