This is pretty straight forward. The Angels picked up an All-Star Closer for a bag of prospects. At the time, analysts and all the suites at ESPN considered the Padres as the winner in this deal. Well not so much. Street has continued his solid career as a rock out of the pen for the Angels and the Padres are yet to see any dividend from anyone in this deal. 2B Taylor Lindsey, and 3B Jose Rondon were thought to be the big pieces but have yet to show any promise in the Padres organization, both hitting under .200.
