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."
