FINALLY! The Pads are calling up Chase headley and activating him today. Andy Pettitte is the slated starter for the Yankees, so we’ll have to wait and see if Headley starts in left field today or tomorrow since Pettitte is a lefty. I’m just glad we get to see this kid play. San Diego is not looking for a savior, but I can pretty much guarantee you that they we are not looking for Paul McAnulty! Kudos to the organization for only dragging their feet until June 17th!
Here’s a little inside info about our prospect with one of the Greatest Porn names in baseball history(see also Dick Pole and Pete LaCock).
