A little stat comparison...

How good was Jason Heyward in his rookie season?

How about this comparison:

Heyward - AB (520) R (83) H (144) 2b (29) HR (18) BB (91) K (128) OBP (.393) OPS (.849)

Player B - AB (522) R (74) H (141) 2b (29) HR (30) BB (59) K (98) OBP (.341) OPS (.847)

Pretty dang close, with player B showing more power and Heyward with more strikeouts.

How good was Heyward and why is his 2010 season something special that will only lead to bigger and better seasons? Player B happens to be the highest paid player in MLB and one of the best players on the best team in the league, Alex Rodriguez.
