With Pablo Sandoval off the market, Chase Headley is a pretty hot property. But maybe not as hot as he could be: Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that it’s unlikely the Yankees will engage in a bidding war for the third baseman.
The Giants and Padres are both reportedly interested in Headley. If they scootch the bidding up towards $50 million or more, the Yankees could drop out. (note: that is the first ever use of the word “scootch” in the five+ year history of HardballTalk).
So, if the Yankees don’t get Headley, who plays third base for them? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller, Bueller . . .
