Chase Me NY or Headin-ley East

Doug Pensinger

After years of discussion about whether or not the Padres should trade Chase Headley it seems that sooner or later he will end up in New York; either through a trade or free agency. The problem that occurs when thinking of possible trade scenarios between the Padres and Yankees is the Yankees lack of young players who are major league ready. This can be seen because whenever I read an article about possible trades between the two they end up listing prospects who have been "disappointing" in low or high A ball, but "still have some potential." These are, needless to say, not the types of players the Padres are looking for in potential trade partners. The one trade I saw suggested once, perhaps in a dream, that intrigued me was Headley for Michael Pineda. There would probably be prospects involved on one or both sides, but I am not familiar enough with prospects to judge their value with a great deal of accuracy.

Would this trade be exciting? For me it would be. Would it be worth it? If that could be answered before trades were done teams would never trade. Possible upside? Headley stays constant with all his non 2012 years and Pineda develops into a top of the rotation type pitcher. Possible downside? Anything could happen, but Pineda has been out for two years with injury. He could come back and just not be effective. He could not come back at all... But that's the name of the game though, all trades start out with risks. What do you think? Would you pull the trigger? Would you add prospects to either side? If so, which prospect? Too risky for you, yellow belly?
