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...

New York Yankees Sign Chase Headley

Chase Headley is headed back to the Bronx!  The New York Yankees and Headley have agreed to a 4 year deal worth nearly $50 mil.  Headley will turn 31 this season and hit .262 in 198 ABs (.265 at Yankee Stadium) after being traded to New York from the San Diego Padres.  He nearly doubled his home run (from 7-13) total in 19 less games with the Yankees as well as 8 of his 20 doubles...

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...

With Chase Headley nearly gone, the Evil Empire turns its lonely eyes to A-Rod

The ever-tweeting Twitterverse says Chase Headley has been handed a 4-year deal worth $65 million by some team not named the Yankees.On behalf of the blogosphere, or the Yankiverse, or the screaming NY hordes scrambling for a better view on the bow of this S.S. Titanic, I say: "Good luck to Mr. Headley and whatever team that gets him."We had Headley for two months, long...

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...

Why the Dodgers should be after Chase Headley

I’ve been a Chase Headley fan for a few years now. He’s undoubtedly one of the best third basemen in baseball, yet he won’t get paid like it. So, the Dodgers should absolutely be in on him. After seeing Pablo Sandoval sign for $95 million and seeing Jim Bowden project Headley to get a 3-year, $27 million deal (which is low), the Dodgers could very well end up with a bargain...
