Imagine what his numbers would look like playing half his games at OPACY, and the other half of his games NOT in San Diego. Not only are his stats away from Petco good but he is also a fundamentally sound player too. He can run the bases (not all current O's can), can steal a few bases, and is good defensively. Oh, and on top of all of that he is under team control for TWO more seasons!
I know everyone loves prospects but I really wouldn't be upset if they gave up a big package for him. Everyone should be on the table except for Bundy, Machado, and Tillman to try and get this guy and they should be willing to give up 4 or 5 guys for him.

By the way, I don't know if I would or wouldn't give up Machado for him. I just don't see why everyone thinks it is crazy for the Padres to ask for him. They know more about him than anyone and they know he can become an elite 3B if they trade him.
With all of the hysteria around acquiring Headley it 's apparently lost in the hoopla that THE PADRES DON'T REALLY HAVE A MARKET LEFT FOR HIM AND ALMOST HAVE TO TRADE HIM NOW TO EVEN GET HIS REAL VALUE. They can want Machado. They can want Bundy. They can want six weeks in a clothing optional hot tub with Kate Upton but that doesn't mean the market is there for them to get what they want.

Wait, is that an option? Because I want that!!!
