I don't know what we'd have to fork over for Headley. Probably a young lefty starter, a guy like Tolleson to replace Headley at 3B temporarily...and Hoes.
Would Matusz, Tolleson, Hoes do the trick? I dunno. Maybe add a reliever like Pomerantz or Villareal.
"A package centered around Britton or Schoop"
It would probably take both and then some. I like Headly and with the free agent Market being so thin at third base this coming off season it would be nice to get the 3rd base situation resolved now. I think Headly is under team control through 2014 if I'm not mistaken which makes it even better. If it could be done without Bundy/Machado being included than I think it should be looked at.
"I was thinking Matusz, Schoop and a C prospect reading the "a lot" comment."
Matusz might interest them b/c he's from San Diego so that could be in our favor. Tillman is doing a nice job at Norfolk this year and seams to be maturing as a pitcher, he's also from Southern California and may be a player of interest to them. It has been reported that the Padres are looking for pitching so...
Both Matusz and Tillman are under team control for a few more years as well which would be a big plus in negotiations.
bumpfrom mlbtraderumorsChase Headley Drawing Trade InterestBy Ben Nicholson-Smith [July 5 at 3:41pm CST]The Dodgers, Pirates, Indians, Orioles and Diamondbacks are among the teams believed to have some interest in Padres third baseman Chase Headley, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. The Padres are open to trading Headley within the division, Heyman adds.
Headley, 28, earns $3.48MM this year and will remain under team control through 2014. The switch-hitter has a .271/.372/.421 batting line in 352 plate appearances so far in 2012. The Padres have scored fewer runs than any other MLB team this year, but top prospect Jedd Gyorko is hitting .315/.379/.532 in the upper minors and could be called upon if the Padres complete a deal involving Headley.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported this week that Headley was drawing serious interest. The 33-50 Padres figure to be sellers at the upcoming trade deadline when Headley, Carlos Quentin and others could be available.
i think an offer of Matusz, Arron Baker (1b from Pirates for D.Lee last year) and another minor league pitcher might be enough to get him. Baker is having a really good season in A ball but the O's have plenty of other options at that position. Headley is 28 and would fit in well with the rest of the Orioles in the 25-30 age range. He is a much better option than any of the other older over the hill veterans that might be available.
