7. Alex Gonzalez
8. Tim Hudson
9.Jose Constanza
thats my ideal lineup
and on Heyward i still think he is a HOF'er in 30 years

I wouldn't say he's a bust, but he is definatly the most over-rated player

This may just be a sophomore slump but if he continues to hit like he is now next season then I'll consider him a bust.

Only because there has been so many situations with RISP and he NEVER comes through. But that may change next year
A lot of these problems could be fixed if a.) he wasn't playing hurt and b.) the Braves would hire a good hitting coach

Like, Kevin Long. No reason for him to leave the Yanks, but there are other great hitting coaches out there.

My Allen & Ginter red auto hopes that he gets out of his funk and puts up numbers like his boy Freeman.

He wasn't good enough to keep his job this year. Larry Parrish is the hitting coach for the Braves.

I sure hope not (starting with reasons below). I am inclined to think his shoulder injury has hampered his swing, and hope the off-season means a happy and healthy Heyward in Spring Training when he will be all of 22.

i dont know if you can label him a bust yet due to his age, but i will agree he has not lived up to his expectations this year with his .221 avg 13 hrs and 38 rbis...granted he missed some time with injury but those numbers are ugly...thats why I got out of my mini-investment with him and was lucky to get back exactly what I payed for it
