Street makes debut for A's

Former Texas ace closer Huston Street made his debut for the Oakland Athletics last night, entering the game in a 7-0 blowout to pitch a scoreless inning. Street retired the first batter he faced, then walked Brian Roberts. After getting Melvin Mora to line out to third, he gave up an opposite field single to Miguel Tejada and had to face Sammy Sosa with two runners on. He struck out Sosa to end the inning.

Not a bad way to make your major league debut. Street was clearly amped up a bit too much, but he pulled himself together to get the job done. Of course, striking out Sammy Sosa isn't quite the same as, say, striking out Albert Pujols (who, incidentally, didn't strike out a single time in 50+ spring training at bats); still, that's a great way to end your first big league inning. Congratulations to Street - may it be the start of a productive year.

It agree, this remarkable opinion
It is a pity, that now I can not express - it is very occupied. I will be released - I will necessarily express the opinion.
