Cut to the Chase…That’s Headley

Texas Rangers v San Diego Padres

Chase Headley: New York Yankee for Yangervis Solarte and Rafael De Paula.

Nice upgrade. Still, Port Gervis! We hardly knew ye. Wish him the best of luck in San Diego.

Swell, here comes 10 or 12 years of Solarte beating our brains in whenever they come to town. :)

What does George Costanza's father make of this?

Aw, best of luck Port Gervis.

1) Don't count on it. lol

Still Solarte will be remembered, if only because he inspired one of John Sterling's very best home run calls.

[4] And if Headley is useful down the stretch and the Yanks go someplace*, Solarte - who any team could have signed for peanuts before the season - will be remembered even more!

*admittedly a stretch in itself

I'm okay with this. I liked Solarte, but the magic was dragging and you knew it was a matter of time before that happened anyway. So Nune5--> Solarte--> Headley, that's not so bad. Just hope it doesn't get any worse than that.

And realistically, anything that reduces Kelly Johnson's exposure is a win.
