Chase Headley has been a fixture on the Padres since 2008, a slick fielding, switch hitting third baseman.  Chase was on pace to have the best offensive year of his career in 2011 and merited All Star consideration.  Most fans associate third base as a power position, but in this day and age, you don't have very many Alex Rodriguez and Evan Longoria types.  Those players are now the exception than the rule.  Combine that with Headley playing in Petco National Park and you are going to end up with a guy that focuses on driving the ball and getting on base.  This season in limited action (113 games) Chase had 110 hits, 28 doubles, and an impressive live of .289/.374/.399./773.  Year Age G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+ 2008 24 91 368 331 34 89 19 2 9 38 4 1 30 104 .269 .337 .420 .757 109 2009 25 156 612 543 62 142 31 2 12 64 10 2 62 133 .262 .342 .392 .734 102 2010 26 161 674 610 ...
