ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Angels acquired All-Star closer Huston Street and prospect Trevor Gott from the San Diego Padres for minor leaguers Taylor Lindsey, R.J. Alvarez, Jose Rondon and Elliot Morris in a trade on Friday night. Street (1-0) has 24 saves in 25 opportunities and a 1.09 ERA in 33 games this season. "Were it not for the fact that we had the ability to control Huston for a year and two months, it would have been far more difficult to justify giving up the type of package that we gave up to get him," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said. "We had to get a guy like Trevor Gott included in the deal to replace some of that lost value. "Hustons 30 years old, and arguably having his best season as a major leaguer," Dipoto added. "Hes been one of the more consistent closers in baseball over time and one of the highest percentage conversion guys in the league for a number of years. I feel really strong about his character and what he brings to the clubhouse. It really deepens the back end of our bullpen and it gives us the opportunity to make games shorter." Street was unavailable to the Padres during their 5-4 home loss to the New York Mets on Friday night. San Diego (41-55) is in third place in the NL West, 12 games off the pace. "Losing is a miserable experience," Street said before the game. "I believe in the Padres ownership. They want to win and they are not content with status quo. "I blame the players for whats happened here." In 10 major league seasons with Oakland (2005-08), Colorado (2009-11) and San Diego (2012-14), Street is 35-27 with 258 saves and a 2.87 ERA. He has converted 109 of his last 117 save chances, the best mark in the majors in that span. Street, fifth on the active list in saves and 31st overall, said the Padres were upfront with him regarding the trade talks. "I asked questions and they gave me direct answers," said Street, who was acquired by the Padres after the 2011 season. "They were extremely honest, said they were fielding offers, and asked me to not be offended." Gott, 21, has split this season between Single-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio. In 39 combined relief outings, he is 2-4 with 16 saves and a 3.56 ERA. He was chosen as a mid-season California League All-Star. Lindsey, a 22-year-old second baseman, was the No. 37 pick by the Angels in the 2010 draft. In four-plus minor league seasons campaigns, he has batted .289 with 43 home runs and 209 RBI. He was rated as the Angels top prospect by Baseball America. Alvarez, 23, has gone 7-4 with five saves in two-plus minor league seasons. The 20-year-old Rondon was signed as an international free agent in January 2011. The Venezuelan infielder has played in 245 minor league games, batting .300 with 146 runs and 116 RBI. Morris, 22, has appeared in 28 games -- 18 starts -- in the Angels system, going 7-6 with a 3.43 ERA. Authentic Patrick Roy Jersey . -- Olympic medallist Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que.

And now, they could be his teammates -- if the four-time NBA MVP decides to stay in Miami. The Heat announced Monday that they intend to sign Granger and McRoberts when the NBAs moratorium on deals being formally struck ends later this week. McRoberts agreed to a four-year deal that starts at around $5.3 million next season, said agent Mike Conley Sr., with Miami using its mid-level exception to get that contract done. "He thinks its a chance to do some special things," Conley Sr. said, adding that McRoberts has a player option for the final year of his Heat deal. Yahoo Sports reported Granger agreed to a two-year deal, worth about $2 million annually. Grangers agent, Aaron Mintz, did not immediately return messages seeking comment. Those were the first two known moves by the Heat during the free-agent shopping period, but all eyes remain on what James is going to do and if hes worn a Miami uniform for the final time. Heat President Pat Riley is planning to meet with James later this week, in an effort to convince him to stay in Miami. Its still unclear when the Riley-James meeting will take place. James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are all free agents, and none have said where they will be playing next seasoon and beyond.dddddddddddd But even after going to the NBA Finals in four straight seasons, winning two championships, this was going to be an off-season of change for the Heat. Miami entered free agency with only Norris Cole under a guaranteed contract for this coming season. The Heat have a partially guaranteed deal with Justin Hamilton and the rights to guard Shabazz Napier, who was acquired on draft night. So there are obviously plenty of slots to fill, and on Monday, the Heat began tipping their hand on who will get those jobs. Contracts begin getting signed Thursday. McRoberts averaged 8.5 points in 78 starts for Charlotte last season, and raised Miamis ire in the playoffs by levelling James with an elbow that some Heat players said looked intentional. McRoberts was issued only a common foul at the time, but the NBA upgraded it to a flagrant-2 and fined him $20,000. Miami will be McRoberts sixth club. Granger has a bit of playoff bad-blood history with Miami as well, most notably in 2012 when he was with the Indiana Pacers. The Heat said at the time Granger was instigating stars like James; the Pacers said he was just showing toughness. Granger has been limited to 46 games over the past two regular seasons. He spent virtually his entire career to date with Indiana, before going to the Los Angeles Clippers for part of last season. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
