Re: Chase Headley
I think Frazier is thee years younger, with the same potential. I don't make trades for what i already have, especially when it costs me more.
I see Headley/Frazier as a lateral move talent wise. Both have reputations as good clubhouse guys so again, lateral move. But then to give up Bailey? Pass.
I looked at Headley's splits over the last 4 years, individually. And it seems he got interesting the year he turned 27. Frazier turns 26 tomorrow. younger, cheaper, under team control. A team that has significant contracts with 3 position players: Votto, BP and Bruce. Cueto has a LTC, Ludwicks 2 year deal isn't exactly cheap. The Reds need to maximize value where it can, and locking up Latos is more a priority than trading for an expensive older version of Todd Frazier.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
