Honestly, I Need An Answer.

Why? WHY? Why do you people continue to say we should trade Chase Headley? I just don’t understand. For what? What are we going to get in return? Prospects? You want prospects? A few guys who might never be anything for a solid, if not upper tier 3B  - is that what you want? And, once Headley does leave we would have a huge hole at 3B. Jedd Gyorko could be good. COULD. Possibly. Maybe. Who knows? Not me and not you. So, please I am putting this to you – the fans, the media, the organization: Why should we trade Chase Headley?

    for austin jackson or edwin encarnacion, maybe. for bryce harper, absolutely. for a good corner outfielder and a top-of-the-rotation starter, yes.
    a bunch of prospects? hell no.

    There is no way Chase Headley should get traded unless its a three for one and they can get a Jason Verlander or a Josh Hamilton in the deal. I’d like to see Jedd Gyrko move to second base, after all Headley broke into the Majors playing left-field.

    I’m hoping the new Padres brass give Byrnes the green light to work out a long-term deal with Headley to avoid arbitration and keep what has arguably been one of the few bright spots on an otherwise bleak team for the past two-three seasons. With deals in place to retain Quentin and Street, along with previous contracts earlier in the year to lock-up the services of Luebke, Maybin, and Hundley (although I’m more of a Grandal fan), I would like to think the Padres are ready to move to the next phase of their rebuilding and start competing. We’ve seen a completely different team since the All-Star break. We’re stockpiled with “prospects” in all facets of our minor league system; trading a player who is under control until 2014 and recently named NL Player of the Month is foolish, but then again would not surprise me one bit.
