Thanks for the help. Could I ask though why you think he will be limited with the Sox in a pennant race?
I considered countering with Ryan Cook and Headley, as Cook's impressive season has hit a bump in the last four starts. Does that make it a closer call? Also have Axeford, Chapman and Wilhelmsen.
Assuming I can wait that long, if Sale has a quality start tonight with 9 days rest, does that change things?
Finally, it's worth noting that Chipper Jones, Kyle Seager, Chris Davis, and Will Middlebrooks are all available on waivers. None of them have the season numbers that Headley does, or the consistence, but Chipper Jones has comparable numbers over the last 30 days.
