This is like deciding between a Quarter Pounder or a Big Mac. Either will fill your belly for the time being, but over the long haul make you sick.
Don't get me wrong. No bones to pick with Chase. He took one in the jaw against Tampa and never complained. But his career has been on a four-year decline, with one brief interlude: His stint with the Yankees - when he proved to be - low bar alert: - an improvement over Yangervis Solarte. We're supposed to get drunk about keeping him in pinstripes? I don't know which is worse - no news or bad news.
Same with Chris Capuano. I guess he's going to Japan, along with Zelous Wheeler. OK, fine. Cross another one off the list, or maybe not.
The Redsocks have broken their bank, the Blue Jays are making their move, Baltimore is the returning power, and Tampa is still Evan Longora and a wave of young arms. The Yankees may or may not have Chase Headley. Nothing is happening. But it could be worse.
