What to expect from Headley in pinstripes
Fantasy owners seem awfully excited about Chase Headley being traded from the San Diego Padres to the New York Yankees on Tuesday, as he vaulted onto the most-added list in hours. While it does free up a potentially valuable player to provide fantasy value again, let's not get too crazy here.
I was a Headley owner for the magical second half back in 2012, when Headley all of a sudden became a monster power hitter, but here’s some news nobody wants to hear: Headley hasn't done so much since, and it hasn't been all due to the spacious, challenging dimensions of beautiful Petco Park. The fact that Headley knocked in the winning run Tuesday/Wednesday around midnight ET, hours after the trade and after not starting his first Yankees game, only heightens the hype.
