I have no idea what Heyward will do this year. He may have a breakout season, but I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't. Most who expect Heyward to have a breakout season are going by the hype that greeted him into the league. I expect that this year, like just about every year, there will be breakout seasons from players who weren't expected to have them.
And I stand by what I posted. If Viciedo does better than Heyward this year, the statistical differences between the two during their initial seasons will be a minor footnote.
