Headley possibly being called up?

Postby RRGL1 » Tue May 06, 2008 7:19 pm

There is a thread over at rotoworld saying Headley will be called up at the end of this week.

He is in the Yahoo database...no really he is.

Man. I hope this is accurate; I'm not expecting a miracle, however Headley has been sitting on my bench since my draft and it sure would be nice to see what this kid can do...

if Headley is called up it would be to play full time in LF right?
does the Padres interest in Jacque Jones make it less likely that Headley is called up?
according to rotowire.com these are his current stats in AAA..
(28 G, 112 AB) 16 R, 9 D, 2 HR, 11 RBI, 13 BB, 32 K
.268 AVG/ .349 OBP/ .402 SLG/ .751 OPS

Dear Mr. Towers

Don't pick up Jacque Jones if you want to maintain your credibility.

Thanks!

Still just unconfirmed speculation at this point, but Headley is raking this past week and helping his cause.

Headley may start getting more attention now in leagues thanks to http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/mlb/news;_ylt=AiPBVwLNhKP4IwtqfK5AFVRNC5kB?slug=be-noise_050808

Haha, that's ridiculous, yahoo links to this page for information! Actually, the more I think of it the more I realize how much more fantasy knowledge I've gotten from this site than Yahoo.

Back to the post, I live in San Diego and sporadically listen to the local sports radio and haven't heard anything. I think it's more of a case of "this guy's a top hitting prospect and your team can't hit so bring him up" type hype than anything, but with that being said I just picked him up. It's inevitable, I feel like the starting left fielder for the Univ. of San Diego could do better than the McAnulty-Hairston platoon.

It sure wouldn't hurt them to bring him up.

Obviously this site gives better fantasy information than yahoo because this site is AWESOME!!! ;-D

But seriously, after a slow start Headley has been raking. In the past 10 games he is batting .463 with 9 runs, 1 hr, 6 rbis and a sparkling 9:6 K/BB ratio. On the season he is batting .304/.383/.464. Not bad considering how slow he started. Lets see what this kid can do...
