St Louis Cardinals: new NL central competition?

The St. Louis Cardinals won the NL Central last season, narrowly edging out the Pirates after the Brewers led most of the year before collapsing. The Reds and Cubs did not provide very much competition, but we know the Cubs made a huge splash signing Jon Lester this offseason. Does that mean the Cubs are the Cardinals new toughest competition? Let’s break it down: The Cubs’ rotation...

St. Louis Cardinals: changes this off season

The St. Louis Cardinals continue to make lots of minor changes this off season. The first change they made was trading for right fielder Jason Heyward and pitcher Jordan Walden. After the death of Oscar Taveras the Cardinals were in need of a right fielder. Heyward more than fills the void at that position. That was the key spot that the Cardinals had to fill this off season. All...

Trying To Figure Out Everyone’s Obsession With Power…

Jason Heyward only hit 11 homers last year, which I think is a part of the reason he got traded. If Heyward produces at the exact same level he did last year though, with excellent defense, a touch of speed and hitting righties well, without an increase in home runs, I’d be happy. The only thing I’d [...]

What happened to Jason Heyward’s power?

The moment the offseason began, the collective of Cardinal Nation clamored for one thing: power. Fans dreamed of trading for Giancarlo Stanton before he signed the largest contract in MLB history to stay with the Miami Marlins. People clamored for signing Cuban outfielder Yasmany Tomas, who just recently agreed to a six-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Some pined for a trade...

St Louis Cardinals rumors: Jon Lester edition

Soon after the St Louis Cardinals dealt Shelby Miller to the Braves for Jason Heyward, the team was linked to free agent ace Jon Lester. Despite not being the most likely move of the offseason, there is still a chance the Cardinals could sneak up and snag Lester off the market, rounding out their rotation and gaining yet another ace. The Cardinals’ loss of Shelby Miller certainly...

The Braves Don’t Rebuild, They Pivot

After the initial shock of the Jason Heyward trade flickered out and your nerves gave way to your brain, you probably had the time to realize the Braves were only trading one year of Heyward to the St. Louis Cardinals, since he’s a free agent after the season. But even after the inevitable, and sometimes boring, repose of logic settles in, the question remains: What in the hell...

Jason Heyward posts classy thank you to Braves fans on Twitter following trade

When Jason Heyward was traded by the Atlanta Braves to the St. Louis Cardinals, it was arguably a somewhat heartbreaing moment for the 25-year-old outfielder. Heyward was a big Braves fan as a kid in McDonough, Ga., something he mentioned in a classy thank you message he posted to fans on Twitter Monday, issuing a...Read More The post Jason Heyward posts classy thank you to Braves...

Trading Jason Heyward needs to be the first step for the Braves

On Monday, the Atlanta Braves set Twitter abuzz by trading Gold Glove right fielder Jason Heyward to the Cardinals. And while the move makes sense from an objective perspective (heading into his walk year, in line for a massive payday, Braves needed young pitching), it hurts from an emotional perspective. This is a guy who grew up in Georgia and seemed destined to take the crown...

The Braves didn’t recently make Jason Heyward a long-term offer

Jason Heyward is gone after today’s trade that sent him to the St. Louis Cardinals. The general consensus about why Heyward was traded is that he would be too expensive to sign long-term, and he’d leave as a free agent after the 2015 season. We don’t know that for sure, however. According to Heyward, who wanted to stay in Atlanta, the Braves didn’t even approach him with...

Is Jason Heyward On The Red Sox Trade Radar?

(Photo By Justin Edmonds)Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything) writes that Atlanta's Jason Heyward is "definitely a name that’s come up" in Red Sox trade musings. Heyward is a classic case of the "can't miss" guy who has—in fact—mostly missed so far in his career. The 26-year old Heyward is a .262 career hitter, who averages 20 HRs a year...
