I can't believe you folks are giving up on Frazier, it's a long season.
San Diego wants pitching, think top prospects. If the trading deadline approaches, and a Headley re-up doesn't look probable, that's what the Padres will want.
I know it's early. Way early. I know what I've seen from Todd in previous seasons too. He's production last year was spawned by him being cut and coming in with a chip on his shoulder. Later in the year he was so cold he was frozen. This year he is looking more like the guy who hit 232 in 2011 than the guy who hit in the 270s last year. His D isn't the greatest either. I hope he can pick it up but I have my doubts. I really don't care if you can hit it out if great American pinball machine against subpar pitching. I want guys that give good hard at bats against good pitching. And for Headley I'd start my offer at either cueto bailey or cingrani depending on many factors. Those are some good young pitchers not just AA or A ball garbage.
