    Chase Headley Extension Remains Unlikely By Charlie Wilmoth [March 9 at 5:45pm CST]

    It still appears unlikely that the Padres will sign Chase Headley to an extension, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. "This has been a topic for a couple years. There's been dialogue. Both sides have tried. We just haven't been able to agree to the essential deal parameters," says GM Josh Byrnes. "There are no active discussions. But the door's always open."

    Heyman notes that both Headley and the Padres agree that they aren't likely to find common ground on an extension. Last month, Headley told reporters that it would be "not fair" to his teammates if extension talks distracted the team from its goals, and that it seemed likely that the two sides would hold off on extension talks until after the season, at which point Headley will be a free agent. 

    Headley hit .250/.347/.400 in 600 plate appearances in 2013, significantly worse than his banner 2012 season. Headley noted last month that the large difference between the two seasons made it tough to negotiate a deal. Headley is represented by Excel Sports Management.

    Coule this be a trade option for Middlebrooks !!

    I seriously doubt it.

    Had we not signed Napoli and gained a comp pick, I could have seen us trading pitching prospects for Headley and moving Middy to 1B, but that's not happening.

    Sure, its a trade option.   But let's not hold our collective breaths here.

     

    Is it a smart idea to deal for Headley (who would unlikely be had straight up for Middlebrooks)?  He clearly is not signing a team-friendly extension.  And what do you have to give up to get him?  Potential FA or not, SD will not be giving him away.

     

    I'm not the hugest Middlebrooks supporter out here, but please tell me you are not bailing on him due to a lackluster start in Meaningless March.  If Headley started out 1 for 10, would you bail on him, too?

    Probably be a Yankee by years end. Kelley Johnson / Jeter / Roberts not going to get it done. If looking for a team to spend stupid $ call the Yanks or Dodgers.

    He'll be 30 in May and has had one good season. Explain why I should be more excited about that than about taking a chance on Middy's potential.
