The worst hitter on the Cubs has also been their most expensive. For Jason Heyward, there are two silver linings. One, he’s impossibly rich, and he can provide for himself and his family without ever feeling a great deal of concern. He’s living and shall live a privileged existence. Two, the Cubs are so good Heyward hasn’t yet been the focus. People have noticed his numbers...
Of 161 qualified Major League batters, Jason Heyward’s Off (FanGraphs’ aggregate offensive metric) mark of -10.8 ranks him ahead of only seven. No other Cubs batter with at least 50 plate appearances has a lower number and the next closest is the -9.6 hung by John Lackey. That’s, uh, well…it’s bad. Really bad. I’ve tried to figure out what’s wrong with Heyward’s...

My first exposure to Jason Heyward came, as it did for many Cubs fans, in the first at-bat of his career—a home run off of then-Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano. At the time, I remember being rather disappointed with the event itself (Zambrano’s final line for that game: 1 1/3 innings pitched, six hits, and eight earned […]
Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward has been a disappointment at the plate, but his defense has helped buoy him until the bat comes around, and there’s still plenty of time. When you sign an eight year/$184 million deal to join the Chicago Cubs in their quest for a World Series title the expectation on you […] Chicago Cubs: Jason Heyward has time to prove his worth - Cubbies...

It’s always been easy to forget that Jason Heyward‘s actually a pretty good hitter. The bar was set so high, with a 134 wRC+ as a 20-year-old in 2010, that it became easy to overlook his consistent above-average performance at the plate from 2012-15 as underwhelming. This year, it’s become even easier for Heyward to appear underwhelming, because for once, he actually has been...
Chicago Cubs right fielder Jason Heyward made a ridiculous catch to rob the San Francisco Giants’ Denard Span of extra bases in the first inning on Friday night at AT&T Park, but was forced to leave the game after suffering an injury on the play. Heyward ran a long way at full speed, before making a sliding catch and slamming into the wall, right by the 421-foot mark (the...
An angry swarm of bees tried to disrupt Sunday’s Cubs-Mariners spring training game. The weather was nice and everyone in attendance was enjoying themselves, so of course an external factor not related to the game in any way came in and disrupted the action. It was so bad, that Jason Heyward attempted to hop the fence to get away from them. Heyward said he got stung at least...
Last week, Jason Heyward was formally introduced as a member of the Chicago Cubs. It was an official coronation of what has been viewed as the ultimate ship-jumping experience of the Cardinals/Cubs rivalry and perhaps the most significant jersey swap between the two clubs since Lou Brock and Ernie Broglio changed addresses for each other. However, the similarities between Brock...
