Headley had a down year last year, but he rushed back from a broken thumb he suffered in spring training and just didn't look right the whole year long.

I think Santiago for Headley would be a great deal for the Sox. Deal from a position of strength to solve a position of definite weakness. One rub is that Headley is in his last year of arbitration (or next to last?) so be good to sign him for a few more years as part of the potential deal.

"That's HEADLEY."

(I know you corrected yourself, but it was just too easy to pass up.)

Yea if I'm throwing Santiago there way, He needs to sign an extension first. 29 should have some miles left and getting out of Petco helps anyone

I bet he would do very well playing here. That would be a very nice trade.

My issue isn't the value, as Headley's ceiling is MVP caliber. I'm more concerned with his age. He'll be what, 30 next year? If he signs an extension, in which of those years will we be competing? What will he look like in that year, a corner infielder at an advanced age?

Headley is not MVP caliber. What are you smoking.

I don't get the love for Headley. Yeah, he's a nice player and all but he kind of reminds me of the money the Yankees just gave Ellsbury for whatever reason. Yes, Ellsbury is the better hitter, I will admit that. But I have read some comments that say, "Well, if Ellsbury can hit 30+ HR again, it'll be worth it." He did that one year. Headley hit 30+ HR and 100+ RBI one year as well. Neither player has come close to that since.

Sure, he plays at a tough park in Petco, but I still just don't see it. He'd be better than whatever other options the Sox have at third base, but I think the Sox are gonna be bad anyway, so what's the point in trading for a guy who will be over the age of 30 soon? I agree with blandman here.

Headley's career has been highlighted by one fantastic year and five mediocre at best years. I would not trade a starting pitcher for him, especially considering his age.

Talking about the ceiling of a 30-year-old with nearly 3,500 MLB PA is pretty insane, we know what kind of player he is

Maybe they'd take back to two pitchers they gave us for TCQ?

Then it becomes Headley for Quentin.
