Chase Headley – Photo by SD Dirk After contract negotiations went nowhere this off-season it’s time for the Padres to cash in on Chase Headley’s breakout season. We have heard that this team is going to build from within and retain talent, but at a certain point if you can’t retain that talent you need to cash in and get maximum value. Chase Headley’s value will likely never be higher. After a breakout season that netted Headley a gold glove and a silver slugger, Headley has finally become the player everyone hoped he would be when he was nicknamed “The Savior”.

  • The Yankees need Headley more than any other team.Arod is done, but apparently noone has told him yet.Youkilis & his annual 3 trip to he DL just isn't going to cut it.How about Granderson,Youkilis,a 1st & 2nd round draft pick could work.
