Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Chase Headley has a four-year offer on the table worth around $65 million. The Giants, Yankees, Indians and Marlins have been linked to Headley at various times in recent days.
If we really want to get to the bottom of this, we should inspect the table closets of each team. Per MLB bylaws, each team gets two tables for free agent offers. One is the actual table, the other a backup. Any team that can’t produce both tables is the one who has that money out on the table for Headley. It’s just simple science.
