When the Chicago Cubs signed 27-year old lefty swinging outfielder Jason Heyward to a 8-year, $148 million dollar deal over the winter…..I started laughing to myself……because he isn’t that good of a player. This was wasted money. Heyward has played in 108 games for the Cubs so far this year and he is 92 of 409 (.225 avg, .617 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 5 homers, 32 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Since the All-Star break, Heyward has played in 29 games for the Cubs in which he is 17 of 100 (.170 avg, .455 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 4 RBIs. The Cubs are stuck with Heyward for the next 7+ plus seasons as no other team is going to want him with how much they are paying him. So it would be nice if Heyward showed some signs of life the rest of the way in 2016.
