Unless something shocking happens the kid looks like HOF material -
But this year? It could be, but batting practice vs big league breaking pitchers is another story.

Color me a doubter him hitting above the OF league average this year just because of the jump he is making.
Most likley by 2010 end you will have been able to find similar numbers via the WW.

Then again he could be KONG!

I've heard him labelled a 'generational talent' in some circles. B-)

Whoa Nelly!

This obviously talented kid runs the risk of getting buried by all of this hype. As a Braves fan, I hope he doesn't read these boards. That's too much to have on his shoulders. I keep thinking of Jeff Francouer.

I just don't see this. Heyward hit better as he moved up the ranks.
Myrtle Beach - .296/.369/.519
Mississippi - .352/.446/.611
Gwinnett - .364/.462/.364 (3 games)

Obviously his slugging went down at AAA, but did it really? 3 games is no sample size, which could be argued the other way, but the fact that he hit in those games has to mean something. I think it's also worth mentioning that over the three levels, he posted a 51BB/51K line. His patience and understanding of the strike zone amazes me. I think it's also worth mentioning that this Spring he's posted a 9BB/6K line. Oh, and sense we're talking about the Spring now, who can forget the 450 ft bomb off of Scherzer with a 0-2 count? :-D

REALLY!?!?!?!?

Wow, people really really need to chill with the hype machine. I have my last 3 drafts this weekend and so far, im 0 for 2 on J-Hey, and HONESTLY, i want to go 0 for 5! Id hafta pay outta the ass to land this kid!! i really had a great chance to land him in my 1st draft but i passed on him when i actually had good value (sort of regretting that though). i would like to own him on 1 of my 5 leagues but i just cant buy into this ridonkulous hype! im glad to hear that he nabbed the starting gig and im curious to see how high hell go now that hes actually a Major Leaguer!? :-?
