The following paragraph is by Joe Sheehan of sportsillustrated.com:

 Chase Headley, Padres. Not nearly as famous as Greinke, Headley has labored in obscurity in San Diego during a down period for Padres baseball. His offensive stats are tamped down by Petco Park, but when you adjust for the environment, you find that he hits 20 percent better than the league the past two years. Away from Petco this year, Headley is batting .279/.378/.488, making him a fantastic No. 2 hitter for any contender. He’s also a very good defensive third baseman and an excellent percentage basestealer (54 steals at a 79 percent clip in his career). Headley brings a high OBP (.368 in 2011-12) at a position that many teams have had trouble filling, and given the wretched situations at the hot corner for some contenders — like the A’s — Headley could provide that critical two-win boost. sportsillustrated.com

The price for acquiring Chase Headley will be extremely high.  The fact that San Diego has one of the better farm systems will complicit the trade of Headley to another team. Giving the Padres the opportunity to ask for just about anything they want.
