At the time, he had a surplus of $18.3M. That is roughly the same neighborhood as Chase Headley.
By our new values, that’s a 26-50 hitter. Or two 51-100 hitters. Or one 11-25 pitcher. Additionally, using Sickel’s list for the Top 20 Pirates, a Grade B hitter is $5.5M and a grade B pitcher is $7.3M.

I think someone like Quentin or Willingham could be a great offensive upgrade over Casey McGehee to hit between Jones and Alvarez and fill a corner OF spot with a power bat. Quentin obviously would be a rental and could be had without giving up any of our top prospects while on the other hand Willingham has a few years of control. What do you think it would take to sway him from the Twins ?

Would think his overall value will average out to be less than that.

I think the trade value for him would be relatively cheap compared to a Scutaro or even an Escobar and he would bring a switch hitting bat into the lineup with some descent power.

As far as Headley is concerned, I would love to see the Bucs acquire him as long as a top 7 prospect isn’t involved. However, I don’t want to see Headley playing in the outfield. Put him @ first or third, but not in the outfield. He has no business playing out there.

Headley is better at 3B than the OF but would be the RF for us and then could spell Pedro against tough lefties and late in games in the field. Headley’s power numbers have never been impressive but they should go up slightly playing in PNC…especially as a lefthanded hitter. I like that Headley has enough speed and on base ability to bat #1 or 2 for us but enough power to move down to 5,6,7 if we need him there. Headley is an excellent baserunner and seems to just keep slightly improving every year. I like him way more than Quentin and he is well cheaper than Upton or a Victorino while still filling a need plus versatility with controlable year. If we could grab him and Scutaro to come in and be insurance for Barmes’ shaky offense we’d fill two top of the order needs fairly cheaply. I like these lineups down the stretch: vs. Righties Headley Scutaro McCutchen Alvarez Walker Jones Barrajas/McKenry Presley vs. Lefties Sutton/Marte/Tabata (You’d hope one of these guys will play well) Scutaro McCutchen McGehee Walker Alvarez Headley Barrajas/McKenry Getting Headley would still leave a hole in the cleanup spot against lefties but I feel like you’d have a lineup with 15+ HR pop all the way through except for Scutaro…who still has pretty decent power for a SS. Really, both lineups should continue to give the Pirates a lot of XBH’s like we have been getting the last 5 weeks, while also improving our OBP a little also. That way when Cutch cools off we will be able to sustain a decent run scoring pace. Then hope either Bedard gets it together or Morton can come back by late August and we should be set to make a playoff run without giving up a Taillon, Cole, Marte, or Heredia.
