Trade Rumor: Chase Headley to the New York Yankees

"Bye, Will Venable. It was nice playing with you." "OK. Bye." "Yeah. I'm headed over to the Yan-" "I SAID BYE. LOOK AT MY HAND. MY HAND MEANS BYE BYE NOW."

There are rumors flying this way and that way that the Padres are going to be trading Chase Headley at any moment to somebody, but who knows who.

Buster Olney thinks the Yankees are in the mix...

Jon Heyman, who wants you to believe he's more baseball than Buster Olney, thinks no:

You know how I know Jon Heyman wants to remind you that he covers baseball better than Buster Olney? Because his Twitter page shows him carrying a bat, which is the tool of somebody who plays baseball, but also, apparently, somebody who covers baseball very well.

Not lost in all of this is the Twitter account of Dave Winfield, which is salivating at the opportunity to make a comment regarding a Padres star moving to the Yankees to win a World Series and maybe kill a seagull in a symbolic gesture of how things that are associated with beach towns can easily be sacrificed in the name of Yankee Superstardom.
