Rockies To Keep Street?

Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd commented today on the rumors that he will flip reliever Huston Street:

"There is nothing in place right now.  I’m not saying we wouldn’t move Huston, or anybody else, but right now I plan on him being with us. That’s what I told Huston today."

It makes sense to hold on to Street for now, because the market has an abundance of closers and Street’s value is down.  O’Dowd would be better served letting him rack up saves and shopping him in July, when teams are desperate for relievers (especially with Street under team control through 2010).
