  • Kershaw has a no hitter thru 8. 14 Ks. Dumbass Hanley Ramirez threw the ball into the ground in the 7th on a routine chopper. Would had the runner by 2 steps. E6. Perfect game ruined.

            5th most Ks during a no hitter all-time I believe. Glad he is on my fantasy team!

I don't doubt Heyward could go onto big things in St. Louis but I don't think he was going to ever live up to the hype and expectations in Atlanta that people had for him when he came into the league. Heyward was basically a defense first player with almost no power stroke. Then again playing for Atlanta seems to automatically deprive players of any offensive talent they had. Not to mention Heyward likely wants around 6 or 7 years and around 150 million. He wasn't going to resign with the Braves anyway.

You are getting a player with different expectations than the player who debuted for Atlanta in 2010. People forget now but Heyward was touted as the best young prospect in the game. People said he had the tools and skills to be the best player in the game. The first half of his rookie season lived up to the billing but honestly post ASG break 2010 he never lived up to the hype or anywhere near it.

                                                                                                    In 5 seasons Heyward has amassed a career slash line of .262/.351/.429 with 84 total home runs with 27 of them coming in 2012. Honestly it feels like he amasses more injuries a season than home runs and he's very streaky.

                                                                                                    However a lot of that has to do with just playing in Atlanta. Outside of Chipper Jones the Braves haven't had a reliable and consistent offensive producer since perhaps Andruw Jone's prime. So having said what I just said about Heyward I expect him to hit 35 home runs next year with +.900 OPS and drive in 120 RBIs for the Cards.
