The Padres traded for Huston Street mere days after Heath Bell signed with the Marlins last week.
The former Oakland A and Colorado Rockie brings a more veteran presence to the Padres. He has been in the majors for seven years and has 178 saves. I think this is a great move by the Padres. I’m just glad we didn’t try to replace Heath with some minor league player.
But forget the numbers. This guy is CUTE. Yes, I did just do a Google search to see if he was single. Not that I’m interested or anything, it’s just weird to have an obsessive crush on a baseball player who is taken. (Kouz, as far as I can tell, is single. No, my obsession is not creepy.)
I’m not saying that this guy might become my new favorite player, since I have yet to see him close a game. But all signs point to a potential new favorite player for me.
