This is more of a montage of quotes from David O'Brien about our own number-71:
''He's Jevon Kearse,'' Chipper Jones said of Heyward. ''He's the Freak. I'm telling you, he's like a bigger version of Freddy McGriff.''
Heyward said he's "probably 6-6 in shoes," so we'll go with 6-5 officially. And 245, up from 230 last year. "Just growing up," he said.
Braves non-roster invitee J.Heyward's wearing No. 71. For now. "I'm gonna say he's not No. 71 at the end," Chipper said. "Just a hunch."
Wow. I'm getting kind-a excited. We still have to see how he performs in games, though.
