A's Talking Extension With Street

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the A's are discussing a long-term extension with closer Huston Street.  Slusser says a deal would likely cover Street's last two arb years and possibly his first of free agency.

I have no idea if Street wants to break the bank.  But if he compares himself to K-Rod, he could ask for something close to $17MM for 2009-10.  The low end for Street's last two arb years would have to be around $12MM.  The A's could point to J.J. Putz's deal signed a year ago; he exchanged quite a bit of money for security.  Ditto Manny Corpas, who was kind enough to give his team two club options.
