Today's trade deadline passed with Chase Headley still a Padre. I asked Josh Byrnes why he held on to the third baseman. "As we did with a few players, we had dialogue with other teams," Byrnes replied by e-mail. "We did not get proposals that were more valuable than keeping the players. It is very hard to access prospects. In that respect, the off-season might be a better environment for trades."

  1. Sounds like good ol' common sense ... which sometimes seems paradoxically rare :-)

    Chase is a good/valuable ball player ... glad he's still a Padre ... even though I'm also looking forward to Gyorko's debut ...
