Report: Padres made Headley a contract offer during offseason

Report: Padres made Headley a contract offer during offseason

An analysis of the Padres' reported contract extension offer to Chase Headley. CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman filed a report saying that the Padres made a contract offer to Chase Headley this winter after the two sides agreed to a contract for the 2014 season.

Dexter Henry and David Menze took to the Barclays Center for Tuesday night's final regular season home game for the Brooklyn Nets, as they took on the Carmelo Anthony-less New York Knicks. And while the game was "meaningless," for the most part, David and Dexter asked a number of Nets fans about their postseason expectations and the question that everyone seems to be asking these days: Who would you rather play in the first round, the Toronto Raptors or the Chicago Bulls?
