Is Chase Headley having a 2012 season? No. Has he had season like that since? No. But can he be better than Kelly Johnson? Yes he is.
Headley hasn't done much, either, having 6 homeruns, 23 RBIs and batting .201. Though I believe more in Headley and his track record, and he may only need a change of scenery.
Put Headley behind hitters like Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark Teixeira, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann, maybe (just maybe) we'd see a different result out of Headley.
And yes, if you haven't figured out by now, I'm talking about a possibility of the New York Yankees trading for Headley.
And if you disagree this idea, you can fuck off!
No, no...please stay. I was just joking.
Headley with the Yankees might bring a different result, compare to he on the San Diego Padres. Especially with that short porch in right.
When the Padres faced the Mets at Citi Field this weekend and I saw Headley smack that right-field homerun, I said: "Man, that ball is in the upper deck at Yankee Stadium."
Headley has power. And a switch-hitter, which we all know (as Yankee fans) the Yankees love.
Now, as for getting him, I'm not gonna give up a lot for him, obviously. Though if the Yankees -- let's say -- only have to give up a catcher like John Ryan Murphy for him, I'd think about it. And I'd probably do it. Depending if Murphy is being asked from teams who have pitching.
Headley's gonna be a free agent this coming offseason. Padres would love to get something for him now. Because I don't think he's coming back.
If I'm the Yankee GM Brian Cashman, I'd give the Padres a call for him. Never know, maybe Headley has a big second half in him.
