Chase Headley is a Perfect Fit #1: Chicago Cubs Edition

David Banks

Let the rumors begin.

Hey, friend! Are you a Chicago Cubs team with a platoon at third base? How's that workin' out for you, fella? Oh it's... Working pretty good? I wouldn't have guessed that all things considered, but still...

Headley, who turns 29 on Thursday, would be perfect for the Cubs, who could add him to a core of young position players that already includes first baseman Anthony Rizzo, shortstop Starlin Castro and three elite prospects — shortstop Javier Baez and outfielders Albert Amora and Jorge Soler.

That's coming from Ken Rosenthal, my good friend! And let me tell you. Ken-Ken ain't just a popular pastime for personalities particularly partial to puzzles! He knows a thing or two about a thing or two.

What else makes the Cubs a perfect fit for Chase Headley?

  • The Cubs General Manager, Jed Hoyer, once spoke to Chase Headley during the three days that Hoyer was General Manager of the Padres.
  • The new Wrigley Field renovations show that the team has decided to actually have a third base, which therefore requires a fielder to field the position.
  • The Cubs are bad and are rebuilding and their focus has been on growing from within and nothing says "growing from within" like looking 2,000 miles away for one of the more expensive options not currently available.

So yes, friend! Listen to me and Ken Rosenthal! The Chicago Cubs and Chase Headley would be perfect together!
