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.
