Sox And Empire Both Getting 'Scorched' At Hot Corner

Headley (L); Sandoval (R)
As pointed out by Ryan Hatch of, both the Yankees and Red Sox are saddled with two of the least productive (and most expensive) third-basemen in all of baseball. Both Chase Headley and Pablo Sandoval had stinker seasons in 2015—Headley hit .259 while committing 23 errors and Sandoval batted .245 and made 15 miscues. Headley 'labors' under a four-year, $52 million deal while The Panda is getting a whopping five-year, $95 million windfall. Both could, of course, rebound—and both can be relatively easily traded. So there's that. But, still, both clubs are clearly getting hosed at the hot corner.
