I think you will see that they are right about Heyward. He may not come out and hit 30 HR's this year (or even next year) but .280 with an OPS above .800 could be the minimum he will do given 500 PA's. IMHO
If Eric Young can get 500 PA's he could steal 50+ bases easily and provide solid offensive production; his defese may be weak however.
