Calling For Help From Our Old Friend, Chris Coghlan

When Dexter Fowler shocked the baseball world and returned to the Cubs during Spring Training in late February, it created a glut in the Cubs’ outfield. Jason Heyward was the premier offseason free agent signing, he would start in right field. Jorge Soler and Kyle Schwarber—the hotshot kids—needed regular playing time. Fowler would of course start […]

WATCH: Jason Heyward suffers injury on amazing catch

Chicago Cubs right fielder Jason Heyward made a ridiculous catch to rob the San Francisco Giants’ Denard Span of extra bases in the first inning on Friday night at AT&T Park, but was forced to leave the game after suffering an injury on the play. Heyward ran a long way at full speed, before making a sliding catch and slamming into the wall, right by the 421-foot mark (the...

Jason Heyward makes great diving catch, crashes headfirst into wall

Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward covered a ton of ground and made a great diving catch to rob Denard Span of an extra-base hit on Friday night. The Giants were trying to get some early momentum against Jake Arrieta, and Span, on the team’s first at-bat of the game, crushed a pitch toward the gap. It looked like he was going to have himself a three-bagger. But Heyward tracked...

Jason Heyward Has Made Some Weird Decisions

I don’t know what the scariest thing is about the Cubs. It might be that they have baseball’s best record, and a historically excellent run differential. Or maybe it’s that they have baseball’s best record, and a historically excellent run differential, while Jason Heyward has been a worse hitter than Alexei Ramirez (who has been a bad hitter). Heyward hasn’t gotten going...

Jason Heyward clarifies feelings on Cardinals, receives chilly reaction

Jason Heyward played for the St. Louis Cardinals for one season in 2015. Just one. But when he signed with the rival Chicago Cubs over the Cardinals this past offseason, fans reacted like the Cubs were signing away a home grown product who had spent his entire career with the organization. What didn’t help was how Heyward described his situation in Chicago versus St. Louis...

Making Too Much of Too Little Jason Heyward

For an awfully consistent hitter, Jason Heyward is considered an awfully frustrating hitter. Over the last four years, he hasn’t had a wRC+ under 110 or over 121, but there’s so clearly the potential for so much more than that too few people have come away satisfied. And it’s easy to identify the problem: Observers wish that Heyward would hit for more power. He clearly can...

Jason Heyward gets attacked by bees during spring training game

An angry swarm of bees tried to disrupt Sunday’s Cubs-Mariners spring training game. The weather was nice and everyone in attendance was enjoying themselves, so of course an external factor not related to the game in any way came in and disrupted the action. It was so bad, that Jason Heyward attempted to hop the fence to get away from them. Heyward said he got stung at least...

Jason Heyward had no desire to be 'the man' in St. Louis

Last week, Jason Heyward was formally introduced as a member of the Chicago Cubs. It was an official coronation of what has been viewed as the ultimate ship-jumping experience of the Cardinals/Cubs rivalry and perhaps the most significant jersey swap between the two clubs since Lou Brock and Ernie Broglio changed addresses for each other. However, the similarities between Brock...

The Fascinating Jason Heyward Contract

On Friday, the Cubs won the bidding for Jason Heyward, convincing the outfielder to come to Chicago despite offers for more guaranteed money from the Nationals, the Cardinals, and reportedly one other team, perhaps the Angels. While Chicago’s offer of $184 million over eight years is certainly a substantial amount, he apparently could have taken $200 million guaranteed by going...
