I grew up in the NE corner of Washington state, but spent my first umpteen years of adulthood in San Diego, hence the split fandom of Padres/Seahawks. I believe in spirited and passionate, but cordial debate. But if you can't take a joke, that's your problem, not mine. And if you are illiterate, I won't take you seriously.

A Fan Of...

Oh yeah, I was doing the math from groundbreaking. But your point even makes it worse. I'm sure Fulton County citizens love that their return was so shitty.

It's kind of amazing that the lifespan of a ball park is only 24 years now.

No, because it just sliced a chunk of flesh off. Nothing to stitch. Just lots of compression and then wrapped it up. Gonna be one-hand texting for a few days.

Even if they go 60-102, they still play baseball for a living. Or in Grant's case, call games for a living. That ain't a bad way to make a living.

In the Yankees' defense, Headley did have the game-winning hit in his 4th at-bat with the team.

I can only speak for me and a few friends, but we may have found a team to root for at playoff time, but none of us had "another favorite".

Yes, we've seen a good month or two from Headley before. And a bad month or two or three or four.

And if he'd at that time (sometime that's not now) been traded to a team with lineup protection and had a productive season for a winner, we'd all be complaining that the Padres didn't do more to re-sign him.

We can debate whether the team could've gotten more in return. But what is not debatable is that his trade value has sunk dramatically since the start of 2013.

The 4-letter is reporting Headley for INF Yangervis Solarte, P Rafael DePaula, with the Padres sending $1 million to NY in the deal.
