picking a photo where he's hitting a ground ball is just mean, imo

I'm assuming this is misinformation, but can anyone illuminate Heyward's 2020 contract status?

that should be opt out. For '19 and '20 season his previous no-trade clause is down to 12 teams before going back to full no-trade (due to 10-5 rights) for '21-'23.

(well I'm going by Cot's, needing 550 AB to guarantee the back half would be a gamer changer and seems impossible that that's right)

If he has 550 plate appearances next year, he would again have the right to void the deal and become a free agent.

He's going to shock us all by rocking a 1.450 OPS this season, setting the single season record, and then opt out. You know, because he's fixed.

We should add 25 DRS for good measure...

Now when I read this thread title I pretend that its about him getting neutered because hes so bad people are like 'the guy really should not father any more kids' just to eliminate the chance that they grow up and get signed by the Cubs

I 100% believe Heyward is gonna put up a career year this year on a 79 win Cubs disaster season because the Baseball Gods hate us, and it’s the only thing that makes the most sense to happen

I 100 percent don't believe you 100 percent believe that.

I'd celebrate if Heyward can just slug .400.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

Thanks to his hot start Heyward now projects to finish this year right around 3 WAR. Him opting out is still a laughable idea at that point (I'd guess that would require a ~5 WAR season), but combined with his contract being down into 8 figures might be enough to make him relatively easy to trade. E.g. we only need to pay down $5mil per year instead of the 10+ it would have taken this past offseason.

That being said I feel like he's started hot every year but 2016, so we have a long ways to go.
