After acquiring Jason Heyward in the offseason from the St. Louis Cardinals, the Chicago Cubs expected a lot more from him after giving him an 8-year contract worth 184 million. He’s struggled this season, only hitting .232 with seven homers and 45 RBIs. But will “The J-Hey Kid” clutch up in October baseball? Jason Heyward […] Chicago Cubs: Will Jason Heyward clutch up in...

There’s an axiom regarding habits that tells us it takes 21 days to either establish or break one. That can obviously vary and I’m going to take some liberties with timing as we continue, but Jason Heyward’s opposite-field rocket in Monday’s defeat of the Reds got me thinking again about the changes in his swing and how they’ve taken hold.

It’s been the kind of season for Jason Heyward that scholars will study for years to come. He’s had a miserable time at the plate, beginning with an April slump that seemingly would never end. Still, even through the poor hitting, there was always one thing that people knew they could count on with Heyward as […]
The Chicago Cubs signed Jason Heyward to a eight-year, $184 million contract in December. At the time, it looked like a great move. Now, not so much. Heyward is currently batting .227 on the season with five home runs and 32 RBI’s. His OBP is .307, which is actually lower than the top 13 batting averages in the National League. Yikes! It’s safe to say Heyward is not living up...
The worst hitter on the Cubs has also been their most expensive. For Jason Heyward, there are two silver linings.

Two, the Cubs are so good Heyward hasn’t yet been the focus. People have noticed his numbers...
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.

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...
I don’t know what the scariest thing is about the Cubs. It might be that they have baseball’s best record, and a historically excellent run differential. Or maybe it’s that they have baseball’s best record, and a historically excellent run differential, while Jason Heyward has been a worse hitter than Alexei Ramirez (who has been a bad hitter). Heyward hasn’t gotten going...
