Default Viciedo vs. Hayward

I was watching MLB TV yesterday and they were predicting MVPs and I think it was Eric Byrnes who picked Heyward to finish 3rd. Is the league still super high on this guy?

Or is this a case of the media refusing to let go of someone they hyped so hard? Don't get me wrong Heyward's a nice ballplayer but MVP?

He seemed to me a better fielding range/more athletic version of Tank.

Their splits last year:

Heyward: .269/27/82 in 651 PAs
Tank: .255/25/78 in 543 PAs

OPS is 70 points in favor of Heyward

Hayward is much better than Dayan and all signs point to a huge breakout season from him, although if anyone from the Braves is an MVP candidate this year I believe it'll be Justin Upton.
