CHASE HEADLEY RUMORS

A-Rod thinks Yankees third base job is his to lose

Despite the Yankees signing Chase Headley to a four-year, $52 million contract this winter, Alex Rodriguez thinks the club’s starting third base job is his to lose. Yep – the 39-year old who didn’t play at all in 2014 and hasn’t played 100 games in the field since 2010 is assuming that he’s going into Spring Training with a starting role at the hot corner. Hold me. Newsday...

A-Rod believes Chase Headley has to win 3B job from him?

Alex Rodriguez has not played professional baseball ever since being suspended by MLB for his role in the Biogenesis scandal in 2013, but he is not letting any potential rustiness deter him. In fact, he still believes he will be an integral part of the Yankees this season. According to Newsday, A-Rod feels that he...Read More

Thoughts On The Headley Signing

"Headley is deadly!"We heard this phrase a lot last year after Chase Headley was traded to the Yankees last season. However, now that he has signed a free agent deal with the team, I am worried that it will turn into something more along the lines of "Headley's contract is deadly!"Four years/$51 million includes one year too many for a player with a history of back problems who hit...

What re-signing Chase Headley really means: The players we will not get

Yesterday, the Retrieval Empire retrieved Chase Headley through 2018.Gimme a pill. I know, I know... some of you blokes think it was a pip-pip jolly good idea. Obviously, the Yankee brain trust did. And look at all it did last year with a measly $210 million: Six wins over .500. (Oh, but that's because of the injuries.)Signing Headley means the team will pass on Max Scherzer or James...

The towering ho-hum approaches: Chase Headley might re-sign with the Yankees

Here's a holiday thought: If all the world were upended - the rich suddenly poor, the worst suddenly the best - the Yankees won't be much affected. Ah... the beauty of finishing near.500!Here's another: If we sign Chase Headley, we'll be basically rolling out the same rickety dessert tray that finished 12 games out last year. Ah... the poetry of standing still!Last night, Brian Cashman...

Comparing Chase Headley With Jacoby Ellsbury

It’s pretty easy to poke holes in Chase Headley‘s free agent case. Three years ago, he was one of the best players in baseball, but it was based on an anomalous power spike that immediately regressed and has yet to reappear. For the last couple of seasons, he’s essentially been a slightly above average hitter, […]

Headley... possibly... barely... uncaringly...

Last night's hottest Chase Headley gossip hit me like the Breaking NFL Hotline News that the Jersey Jints had trounced the mighty Titans of Tennessee... keeping alive their dreams of a 6-10 season. I blinked my eyes and thought: Is anyone still following this?The headzup from Headley claims that our hero "loved-loved-loved" his two months in NYC - (Hey, with all those $10 Rolexes...

New York Yankees look to Rob Refsnyder over Headley

The New York Yankees are losing interest in their former “top priority” player Chase Headley and instead are looking at Triple-A player Rob Refsnyder to fill in at second-base. In 2014, Refsnyder played second-base for the Scranton/Wilkes Barre Railriders hitting .300 with eight home runs and 33 RBIs in 77 games after spending the first half of the season playing for Double-A...

Yankees should say no to beheadings and to Headley

The Yankees should not be beheading players or be playing Headleys.There you have it: By far, the most tasteless introductory pun in the history of this blog - proof that two seasons out of the playoffs can turn a Yankee fan insane.O, but if only this were a delirium dream...It's not. Jon Heyman at CBS says the Incompetent Empire might sign Chase Headley.Dear God, do something...

Headley's Yankees debut ends with walk-off, Gatorade shower

To call Chase Headley's Tuesday anything but extrordinary would would be a cruel understatement.Headley started the day off ready to suit up for the Padres against the Cubs at Wrigley Field when he found out he was acquired by the Yankees and hopped the next plane to New York. The Bombers' new third baseman wasn't able to get to the Bronx for the start of his new team's...
