RE: Calling up Headley

I'll admit that Paul DePodesta's latest post irks me a little bit.  As fans we've been dying to know any information about Headley for months.  Every time Towers was asked about him the same reasons were given and they sounded really fishy.

I don't even have the energy to go through each excuse again.  Every reason seemed to be debunked when he was brought up to start and play the outfield in Yankee Stadium. Over and over we were told he couldn't handle the pressure and so he was brought up in a stadium and a city where even veterans admit to being off their game due to the pressure, the crowds and the history of the Yankees.

First of all, let me say that I'm a little disappointed that I haven't received a bunch of questions about this [Headley's Promotion] so far, especially considering all of the talk on the subject. After all, these types of situations are perfect for this forum.

I'm a little disappointed by this statement.  Why do we have to ask?  We've been asking for months and we've been lead in circles, if it wasn't one reason then it was another.  I just wish Paul would just tell us the real reasons and give us the best information that he can, without us having to ask the right question.  He knows the questions that are out there, without us needing to ask them.

A post like this from Paul would have been okay a month or so ago, but I just feel that we deserve some straight forward answers at this point.  Now that Chase is up, I just don't have the energy to play these games anymore.
