Jason Heyward may get an All-Star Game start

Given the ascension of Strasburg and Stanton and the draft of Bryce Harper I’m surprised people still remember a tired old warhorse like Heyward anymore, but it’s nice to see him get his props before he’s forced into retirement.

    Not entirely impossible that this is the last time he gets to start. Maybe he starts the next 15 All-Star games, but given Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Ryan Braun and whoever breaks out among Bruce, Stanton, CarGo and McCutcheon, it’s a tough outfield for NLers for the next few years.
