I had a slight unscheduled absence from the internet yesterday morning, but I am back today to catch you up on what is going on in the world of the San Diego Padres. The sad part is even though I didnât post anything yesterday, there wasnât much going on at all. In fact today you are getting five articles. That is five articles that encompass the past two days. This is one reason why I need your help. I have mentioned before that I have my core websites that I check each morning for Padres news, but I can miss stuff on occasion. So please, if you see any obscure article about something, send it my way over at twitter. I have my twitter account linked here as always for you to send me links. And if you contribute I will be sure to give you a shout out on here as well. So letâs get to those links for today:

The Padres need to trade Chase Headley now! â Steve Adler of The Friarhood

After contract negotiations went nowhere this off-season itâs time for the Padres to cash in on Chase Headleyâs breakout season. We have heard that this team is going to build from within and retain talent, but at a certain point if you canât retain that talent you need to cash in and get maximum value.
Chase Headleyâs value will likely...
The San Diego Padres avoided arbitration with Chase Headley on Jan. 30, but they don't seem to be making any headway toward getting their third baseman closer to a long-term contract. Headley will make $8,575,000 in 2013. Headley was seeking $10.3 million in arbitration, while the Padres were offering $7,075,000. Headley made $3,475,000 through a pre-arbitration agreement...
Baseball America's Matt Eddy has been ranking the top Padres' prospects since 2007 when he took over for Kevin Goldstein, who is now the Director of Pro Scouting for the Houston Astros.
Eddy, who is Baseball America's Associate Editor for their website and the minor league was kind enough to speak about his thoughts on this year's list.
So many of these lists...

Here is the deal, you need to pick the winning team and the final score.Â Example: Ravens 35-31

Over the past week we have seen guys sign for another year in agreement with the club and not have to go through the ugly arbitration process. I was a little worried that Chase Headley would be the player to go through that since his filing number and the teamâs were so far apart. However...
