Guess here is that he will and Headley won’t be traded. For now.
Speaking of future, I don’t see Headley sticking around. If he isn’t moved before 1 p.m. today, he’s dealt in the offseason. Those Petco numbers are too dreary to ignore. Pads should add pitching depth in return.

#Padres will move Headley today. But if they do, I'm nearly certain they'll want a starting pitcher in return.
If it's a big league ready starting pitcher the Padres would get in return, I think I'd prefer to keep Headley in Navy Blue and Dull Gray. Yet I yet I yearn for the excitement of a trade.
In general I'd rather have bats in the line up than arms in the rotation, but that could all change depending on which starting pitcher the Padres would acquire.
