So I suggest that the Bucs wait until someone more useful becomes available.

Headley is good, and would certainly help. However, not worth a top prospect. The question is would SD take a bunch of 2nd tier prospects? I guess we’ll see. I’d like to see what the A’s would take for Seth Smith. Haven’t heard specifically that they are shopping him, but can’t see why they wouldn’t deal him.

Some team like the Dodgers or Angels will give up too much to get him.

It IS, however, time to start thinking about what can be done to keep this team in what seems like legitimate contender status.

That’s not to say we need to sacrifice the farm system, but rather, there’s nothing special that makes our top prospects more valuable than those of other teams. Why not trade a top prospect or two for a guy like Headley, and then deal from an area of strength (ie the bullpen (specifically Hanrahan)) to acquire a top prospect from a contender with a shallow bullpen. The Bucs would be better with an upgrade on offense and a replacement in the bullpen, and the farm system could pretty much tread water.

He is a good hitter just entering his prime. Throw in team control for 2 years or so and he really could make an impact here. I think Holt, Mercer, and either Presley or Tabata plus cash could net us Headley.

Tim Wood is an organizational depth guy; Bryan Morris has regained his status as a top bullpen prospect. Jordy Mercer’s also a good piece while d’Arnaud is really a bench guy at best. Any of the 3 lefties plus Morris plus Mercer would be a heavy price, even with as deep as our farm system has become.

If he can play in the outfield, he would be a nice addition to Cutch, Marte/Presley/Tabata. His bat could make a big difference in this lineup. Just don’t want to give up top prospects for him.

Switch hitter and hits for a decent average. I wonder though if he can play the outfield. But considering the tear Jones and McGehee are on I don’t see the Pirates getting too desperate. However, a line up of with Marte, Cutch and Headley in the outfield and a Jones/Mcgehee platoon on first sounds good to me. Presley and Sutton as backups. Not too bad at all. I’d prefer Willingham though I think.
