CLUELESS HAL AND THE GENIUS WOULD GO THREE YEARS FOR HEADLEY

According to Jon Heyman, The Yankees are willing to give free agent third baseman Chase Headley a three-year deal. The MLB third base market is a tad thin third-base  now that Aramis Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval are off the board, it appears Headley is looking around for something better.  Headley-Yankees second-half marriage was a major hit last year, but he likely believes he can beat three years elsewhere.

The Giants have contacted Headley and The Indians have also been in contact with him.  The Indians had shown interest in Headley during last season’s trade deadline.

Headley was well liked in the Yankees clubhouse, and it is said that he enjoyed New York much more than he would have expected. But Headley turned down a three-year offer believed to have been for about $39 million from the Padres last spring, and expected to do much better than that. He certainly isn’t ready to sign up for less than that for the Yankees at the moment.

Let’s take a look at Headley’s lifetime stats.  Other than his career year of 31 hrs, Headley has not hit more than 13.  He is a .260 hitter with some power.  Pablo Sandoval was over paid by the Red Sox.  If the Yankees want to shift Martin Prado to third base, I cannot make a good argument.  The Yankees have a real dilemma and their vacant Farm System, no matter whatever myth Clueless Hal tries to perpetuate,

is barren.
