Valentine’s Day with 619 Sports

It’s Valentine’s Day and instead of racing home to bend my knee and offer flowers to the lovely Mrs. AJM I called an audible – I designed a floral bonanza of love on the counter during the afternoon, wrote something witty in a card, made reservations for TOMORROW* along the water in a fine Coronado eatery and joined Craig Elsten for a discussion on the Chase Headley contract situation.

*Seriously . . . going to a restaurant ON Valentine’s Day is for complete amateurs.

It was awesome. We debated the idea of trading Chase now or extending him during Spring Training. We also discussed the merits of bringing home Chase Headley to date your daughters. Not my daughters . . . yours. We also discussed King Joffrey, an individual Craig and I both agreed would be a terrible suitor. Good times.

    Good discussion, and I agree with what you told Craig at the end; he should be on the radio more. I also agree with you that it’s not the time to trade Chase (as Elsten argued). All of the optimism and buzz, both among the fans and the players, would likely take a big hit if Byrnes were to trade Chase right now, unless he got an absolute stud of a 2B in return, which would make the Gyorko-to-3B move painless. Thanks for posting the link; I really enjoyed listening to the conversation.

    • Cool, glad you enjoyed it. My predicton: The Padres spend the season talking about how they want him and then they allow him to hit free-agency, make him a ballpark offer, and then get outbid by LA/NY. This will allow Gyorko to slide over to 3B and for a natural 2B like Yonder Alonso to move over from 1B ; )
