Holliday deal done!, Street might be filpped to another team...

Dominick DiFucciAnalyst INovember 11, 2008

The Rockies have traded slugger Matt Holliday to the Athletics for closer Huston Street, left-handed starter Greg Smith and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, pending physicals by Oakland's players, according to a report in Tuesday's edition of the Denver Post.

According to the newspaper, Holliday will fly to Oakland on Tuesday to meet with club officials. Barring any unforeseen medical issues—Smith underwent elbow surgery last month—Holliday will join the A's.

Gonzalez and Smith were obtained from Arizona last offseason in the deal that sent Dan Haren to the Diamondbacks. The Rockies needed the right-handed Street because of the inevitability of losing left-handed reliever Brian Fuentes on the free-agent market this offseason.

But according to CBS Sportsline, the Rockies may not keep Street. Citing a source, the Rockies may be prepared flip him to a still undetermined team.

St. Louis, the New York Mets, Detroit, Cleveland and Tampa Bay are among the clubs in the market for a closer this winter, though the Tigers do not appear to be involved with Street, the Web site reported
