Jason Heyward: The key to the Cardinals offense

Picture yourself walking through a library. You suddenly see a book cover that grabs your attention. You notice the author is someone you really admire. They have written great books in the past. Sure, their last novel was a misfire, but they are still young and capable of producing greatness with their next opportunity. It’s really hard to walk away from this particular book because...

Cardinals: Sam Tuivailala gives bullpen a high octane wild card

The St. Louis Cardinals have made some sexy moves this offseason, most notably the acquisition of Jason Heyward (of course, a position player).  But his former teammate Jordan Walden came over in the trade to solidify the back-end of the bullpen as well, and it is a move that should not be overlooked. Speaking of being overlooked, nor should another very promising prospect that...

St. Louis Cardinals lineup considerations: Jason Heyward

For St. Louis Cardinals fans waiting on the team to strike a Max Scherzer mega deal, disappointment came earlier in the week when the St. Louis native signed a monster $210 million contract with the Washington Nationals.

St Louis Cardinals: will the offense improve?

The Cardinals offense saw a meteoric drop in 2014 after a record-setting 2013 numbers failed to carry over. The two main factors for this: Carlos Beltran’s departure and the lack of any production from Allen Craig whatsoever. This offseason saw no major departures and several upgrades. Does it all add up to a return to being an elite offense in 2015?   No need to cover the losses...

Jason Heyward Addition Creates Lineup Adjustments for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals made their biggest splash of the offseason early when they completed a trade with the Atlanta Braves, sending Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins to Atlanta in exchange for Jordan Walden and Jason Heyward.

Jason Heyward Says All the Right Things While Speaking with St. Louis Media

The St. Louis Cardinals made their biggest offseason move to date when they completed a trade with the Atlanta Braves that brought outfielder Jason Heyward to St. Louis.

The following is a very data-heavy look at Jason Heyward‘s batted ball history, his splits, and what, if anything, can be gleaned from it. If you dismiss or are simply uninterested in these in-depth dives into trends, ratios, expectations, etc., I’m not offended if you wish to pass over this piece. This is simply my inner baseball nerd taking over. Why? I’ve seen quite a bit...

Player Profile #147: Jason Heyward | OF | STL

Always injured, too many ground balls, disappointing home run totals, more valuable defensively — Jason Heyward has a lot of critics, and they have a lot to say. The frustration is understood, even for those like myself who haven’t actually owned Heyward but have toyed with the idea of doing so. Whereas Adam LaRoche is a model of consistency, Heyward is anything but. Heyward...

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?
