Can the St. Louis Cardinals afford not to sign Jason Heyward?

The St. Louis Cardinals clinched the National League Central crown for 2015 with their series victory in Pittsburgh earlier this week. Because regular season implications have been wrapped up for the Redbirds, we’ll probably see more of the reserves in action during this weekend’s series in Atlanta, as the regulars rest up for the NLDS, beginning October 9th on TBS. Those regulars...

Cardinals' Jason Heyward returns to Turner Field for first time since being traded

ATLANTA -- Once the face of the franchise, Jason Heyward returned home on Friday to the stadium he sent into a frenzy in April 2010 with a home run in his first career plate appearance. Over five years later, Heyward is now a part of the National League Central champion St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals, owners of the best record in baseball at 100-59, clinched the division on Wednesday...

Why the Cardinals should resign Jason Heyward

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak was scrutinized for his November trade that sent the club’s top young arm in Shelby Miller to the Braves for Jason Heyward. Many fans and media felt as though it was an uncharacteristic “panic move” by Mozeliak following the tragic and unexpected death of the club’s top prospect, Oscar Taveras. While Shelby Miller is having a great year for the...

Free agent value: 3 up 3 down

With the final stretch of the MLB season winding down, players about to embark on free agency have largely impressed upon the industry their market value.  Following last year’s free agent class, top heavy with pitching, this year's group is more well rounded and should see comparable value in terms of dollars. MLB teams have shown a willingness to break the bank for both pitchers...

#SignJasonHeyward. Yesterday.

Remember when Jason Heyward started slow this season?  When he hit .217 in April with five double plays to just two home runs and a section of the fanbase was ready to write the trade of Shelby Miller off as a loss?  You kinda have to peer through the mists of time to remember that, because the Jason Heyward [...]

How Much Would You Pay To Keep Jason Heyward In STL?

Here’s Jason Heyward’s line so for 2015: .293 BA | .350 OPB | .445 SLG | .795 OPS | 11 HR | 50 RBI | 131 H in 447 AB His oWAR is 3.0 and his WAR is 4.6. If you go by the baseline (and yes, I know this is way more complicated) of 5M/WAR point, then Jason Heyward is having a 23M season while the Cardinals actually pay him 4.5M. Bottom line? Heyward is KILLING it in a free agency...

Heyward is getting the job done in the cleanup spot

Jason Heyward is finally in the position most thought he would be all along when he joined the St. Louis Cardinals -- cleanup hitter. The outfielder has fielded the No. 4 spot in the lineup in his last 14 starts, and although he hasn't yet provided a power stick in terms of home runs, he's driving in runs -- he had a two-run single in the first inning Tuesday to start the Cards off...

Launching the campaign to sign Jason Heyward

Jason Heyward. Attention: There are only 48 more days left in the 2015 baseball regular season. That’s 48 more days until the Phillies are finished playing baseball in 2015. You may be happy to hear this, as you’ve watched almost every major league team bludgeon the Phillies like an animal carcass in a meat-packing plant. Or, like me, you may be unhappy because, hey...

Does Jason Heyward’s recent surge mean he’ll stay in St. Louis?

How about this Jason Heyward fella? Since the end of April, Heyward has been hitting pretty well and given the Cards a boost in right field, a sore spot in 2014. Hey, maybe the St. Louis Cardinals didn’t make a bad trade after all this past November when they picked up Heyward and Jordan Walden and gave up Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins. The 25 year old right fielder had five...

Tempers flared during the Cardinals’ win over the Reds on Sunday, particularly on the Cincinnati side of the field. Reds manager Bryan Price was ejected in the eighth inning for arguing that a player was hit by a pitch, but his blood pressure may have started going up earlier in the game thanks to a...Read More
