A great defensive 3B who has a patient approach (the anti Wilson Betemit). I wonder how much the Padres would want for him. Probably more than the O's should give up at this point unfortunately...
I feel your pain and I would love to have Headley, and Matt Garza too; BUT they would cost us most of the too few legitimate prospects we have in our system which means we might win 90 games this system and then fall back to a .500 or worse team for the next few years. Trading our prospects for short term additions is like going on vacation with next months rent money. Sure, it will make you feel good RIGHT NOW but you will regret it when the fun is over.
I'm enjoying this season as much as the next fan but I also recognize that this team would be lucky to get through the wild card game and would not get through the first round of the playoffs.
Trading for players at this point will cost more talent than after the season is over. I'd rather wait and build a winner that will last for years than waste our future.
