This season is important.
On the broad shoulders of 23-year old Jason Heyward are not just the hopes of an offense. He carries the hopes of a franchise, a city, and a race. He wowed in 2010 with a record setting rookie season. He stumbled a bit in 2011 with some “experts” going as far as saying the Braves may want to consider trading him should he fall flat again a la Jeff Francouer. Word to the wise: talent like this kid has is once in a generation, and this year he’s going to show the baseball world what they have to look forward to for years to come.
I for one can’t wait.
