When the Chicago Cubs signed 26-year old lefty swinging RF Jason Heyward to a 8-year, $184 million dollar deal over the winter it made me chuckle. In his first six years in the majors, Heyward averaged a whopping 74.3 runs scored, 16.2 homers, 59.7 RBIs and 14.3 steals per season! Wow….those numbers are worth $23 million bucks a year these days on an 8-year deal? I don’t think so. He was an All-Star as a rookie for the Atlanta Braves in 2010…..but that’s the only time he has played in that game so far in his career. He did win 3 Gold Gloves in his first six years in the show, but that still doesn’t make him worth the money the Cubs are paying him. Heyward has played in 37 games for the Cubs so far this year and he is 32 of 142 (.225 avg, .611 OPS) with 20 runs scored, 1 homer, 14 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He has now played in 872 games in his first seven years in the show and he is 836 of 3,147 (.266 avg, .776 OPS) with 466 runs scored, 98 homers, 366 RBIs and 91 stolen bases. He is by far the most overrated players on the Cubs and he is one of the most overrated players in all of baseball!
