I can't believe this..He is the ONLY reason I thought we could still hang on and be a contender this year..It's over now..Pitching is great but useless if we can't score runs. This is really bad news for any Braves fan.
It further destroys an already ungodly destroyed market...When a team gives Heyward $24+m its going to get every below average hitting OF that can catch a fly ball thinking they deserve that type of money...
Going to hate seeing him in that new uniform, though.

When that guy has the best range of any RF, is still young, and clearly has the potential to be an elite hitter, he probably will get paid.
Face it, the Braves screwed up Heyward's hitting by messing with his stance and swing constantly and trying to make him a leadoff hitter. It's going to suck watching Heyward reach his potential as a Cardinal.

Sad thing is, I think our offense will be a little bit better next season because we have guys that can actually put the ball in play... Power will obviously be down with the exception of Gattis and Freeman, but we should be putting the ball in play a lot more now...
Not exactly lighting the world on fire. Everyone is acting like the new GM is breaking up a world series team. We sucked last year plain and simple!! We'll be much better off trying to have good pitching with timely hitting rather than trying to hit a #### homerun every time and just striking out. Everybody has forgotten how bad Atlanta was this past September.
