    Whiplash caused by knee jerk reactions is my guess.

    Remember Bruce's first game?

    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    50/50 shot it will be one of those two guys.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Just read this:
    Since homering in his first major league at-bats, hes 2-for-16 with eight strikeouts.
    Heyward could be one of the better NL outfielders ... eventually. But, I think that the hype got a little crazy and some people started thinking that he'd be one of the best outfielders NOW. Hopefully the expectations for him THIS YEAR will become a little more realistic. If Heyward can just have an .800 ops this year it would be a big achievement.

    That's actually better than the start Bruce has had to this season, believe it or not.

    Has anybody seen Heyward hit? He has insanely quick hands and a short swing.

    Heyward will have the better year and career. He's a once in a lifetime type player, IMO.

    I think Bruce will end up with 30+ HRs, but overall Heyward will be better.

    Considering some of the bad D guys we've had at SS in the last decade it's not a surprise to see the glove guy with no stick get love.

It is more pronounced against lefthanders, but he does it on righthanders too. He has no chance against a lefthanders' breaking stuff. Heyward looked like a beast at the plate yesterday. Stays on the ball real well. If yesterday is a good indicator, he is real good. Like all players, they will find a hole and exploit it. How he handles that will tell a lot.

    Hitting a baseball in the Major Leagues is Hard.

    Hitting when you are off balance is all most impossible.

    I'll agree with this assessment.

    I must not have gotten access to "this board" that has all "Janish love."

    Maybe I should check my DNS.
