The answer seems to be Jose Constanza & Andrelton Simmons ? Wren never ceases to amaze.

@DO

Constanza is the one who is turning the O around te past two games, open your eyes. Not only has he delivered agressive at bats and speed on the base paths, the defensive play running down a very important ball to the left field corner goes unnoticed by the likes of you and Wren. Our defensive play in left and right field has been the worst in all of mlb, slow to the ball and losing outs because of such. ABOUT DAMN TIME CONSTANZA WAS CALLED UP, 6 weeks to late but hey, who cares right Wren.

Trade Heyward ASAP and get us a right fielder with speed. All teams want over 20hrs from right field a year but the poor average and fielding of Heyward tells me that a speedy right fielder that is a contact hitter is better at this time.

The Fielding Bible had Heyward ranked in the first couple spots the last two years in overall fielding. Just because to the eye of a casual fan a player looks like he is not performing does not make it so. Fielding assessment is harder to make than offense where there are a number of statistics that indicate if a player is producing.

Heyward’s speed, or lack of it, isn’t the problem. It’s the apparent resorting to old, bad, habits at he plate that’s frustrating. Hopefully, the new hitting coaches won’t lose patience and stop trying…now if we can get the Jayman to not lose his and completely go in the tank, maybe he’ll still make a career of it. And for what it’s worth, Pastornicky had to go…his teammates had long-since lost confidence in him (although that booted ground ball from Jack last night in the ninth made me think they had left ‘Pastorman’ in the game following his pinch hit in the 8th). Simmons won’t even have to go above ‘The Mendoza Line’ to be an improvement.

@gamechanger,

Ur dumb. Constanta isn’t an MLB game changer. At. All. Prado is fantastic in LF and Chipper will be back so Constanza will go back to AAA. Heyward is GREAT in RF and his bat has been solid and will get even better.

Stop being an idiot.
