He's had a weird career vs LHP, some years he's been entirely acceptable and even pretty good. In 2010 he had a .755 OPS, 2013 .801, 2015 .704, then in 2014, 2012 and 2011 he hap OPS's in the .400s, .500s and 600s vs them.

I'm not gonna hold his night too much against him, Heyward has struggled vs LHP before and this could just be a real tough matchup

It seems like he is a little more than usual, maybe it's part of his adjustment/focus of trying to go to CF/RF more this year?

Cespedes just came up hobbling trying to run into 2B on a ball to the gap he probably wasn't even running full speed on.

Re: I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

They were the low Derek Lee hands before they were the low Rizzo hands. Huh? He held the bat really high, comparatively speaking to Rizzo's/Heyward's hands. Are you thinking of Aramis? I think he lowered his hands over the course of his career/time with us. http://www.thedailycub.com/wp-content/upl...

Re: 4/26 World Champs (Lester) @ Pirates (Glasnow) 6:05pm CSN-C+

Stop hating on Baez. Sneaky has waited years for the opportunity, sure, but at worst Baez is a defensive whiz at 2nd, with enough power to provide value in bursts offensively. Leave Baez alone. another way of saying he's terrible offensively and provides literally negative value despite his defense...

If they don't cut Shefty then they aren't really serious about these cuts. He does nothing original and for what he makes you could hire 5 interns for probably 1/20 of what he costs to follow the necessary guys on twitter to break news on ESPN's twitter page, ESPNs bottom line, etc. Who cares if you...
