The Chicago Cubs will have a new Jason Heyward

In 2016, every at bat for the Chicago Cubs right fielder, Jason Heyward, ended up in an opposing player’s mitt. At least it seemed that way. Chicago thought they hit a home run (pun intended) with the signing of the 27-year old former Cardinal. Instead, Heyward’s first year of an eight-year $184 million contract was far from productive. Heyward found himself ending the regular...

Pick the Better 2017 Hitter

Imagine how Jason Heyward would feel if the Cubs didn’t win the World Series. On one side of the coin, any non-championship season falls short because of countless different reasons, and on the other side of the coin, Heyward still has to care the most about his own performance.
