I don't even know what this means. Heyward got on base at a higher rate than Prado last year, in addition to being better at virtually everything else and being cheaper.
ehhh no he didn't
I just don't understand why as a gm...
1) you know your team has Uggla, who is a major liability as far as batting average/strikeouts. and 2) You see McCann's batting average dip drastically over 3 years or so.... and 3) you know heyward hit .229 two seasons ago, so he's a risk to hit at a very low average... and 4) you know your most reliable batter for years in chipper is retiring
so you go out and sign BJ Upton, a guy who strikes out all the time and has potential, but has never hit for average minus his rookie season... and you get rid of Prado, a guy who hit .305 last year and is a .295 career hitter.
Why is this such a controversial opinion?
