Batting third, Jason Heyward

Interesting that Bobby batted Heyward third today in a line-up featuring every regular with the exception of Chipper and Glaus. So far he’s delivered with a single, two walks and steal of third. Tommy H. was also sharp, tossing two scoreless innings, as was Medlen, who followed with two scoreless frames. However the Muts scored three in fifth off newcomer Jesse Chavez, who remains a likely bet to stick with the big club.

    I think you overestimated Chavez in comparing him to Bob Walk. He looked more like German Jimenez today.

    Jason is just the real deal. That little walking lead he took turned into a full sprint in an eyeblink. We’ve compared him to severasl people but I saw ’77-’79 era Dave Parker skills from him today.

    Did I see Chris Resop in the boxscore for the home nine? When did we get him back? I guess better question is why?

  3. It was my constant lobbying to bring about the Resop’s Fables fan club in the right field upper deck!

    Good to hear about Hanson and Medlen though; hopefully Medlen will be the key to a solid bullpen this year.

  4. I’m ready to get on board. Heyward will go 20 HR, .285, 80 RBI, 15 SB and win ROY. He has a veteran’s plate discipline. I’m not sure, but I’ll bet it took Francoeur his entire first spring training to draw two walks.

  5. Only knock on Heyward is he grew up a Yankees fan. Apparently they drafted his grandfather. I can easily forgive that when he starts mashing for the Bravos.
