    Well sure if you under sell his kind of power in this stage of baseball then a simple comment to shrug it off is okay.

    You just don't see this kind of power anymore and Stanton isn't a slouch on defense. Heyward's a great talent but, give me Stanton every time if I have to pick. He's the diamond in the rough in baseball right now. No one is dismissing Heyward but, I could say you are going to get a handful more Heywards before you come close to getting a few more Stantons in baseball. It's all about commodity.

    Power too legit to quit.

    This comparison is an insult to Stanton. Stanton is a rare breed like Trout. Heyward isn't necessarily a dime a dozen, but he isn't a freak along those lines.
    through 06/28/2014...

    2014 Giancarlo Stanton (on pace for)

    81/81 G
    .316/57/21/60/7 w/ 4.4 fWAR & 5.1 rWAR

    He's comin' for that title, Mike Trout (on pace for)

    75/79 G
    .312/53/18/59/10 w/ 5.4 fWAR & 5.0 rWAR

    Stanton.

    He has so much power that he makes up for any negatives, and his walk rate will be heading north with that power before long.

    Heyward is a really nice player, but Stanton is something more special and rare.

    I wouldn't call it an insult to Stanton..

    Over the past 3 years:

    Heyward fWAR: 13.7
    Stanton fWAR: 13.1

    Far from an "insult." Heyward is superior on defense and baserunning, but has to continue improving vs lefties. Against RHP in '12, he had 20 HR and a .934 OPS, which was a 180 point jump from that awful 2011 season with all those injuries. His OPS against LHP went up 80 points last season, but is still too low.

    Stanton is still better that too. It's an insult to Stanton because Stanton is clearly better and has special power.

    And that's also assuming that Heyward is some sort of defensive god out in RF, which I don't think he is.

    I missed the part where playing more games made you less valuable.

    50 DRS in RF these past 3 years. Like it or not, he's one of, if not the best in the game defensively.

    It doesn't. But using a cumulative stat when one guy as played 100 more games isn't the most fair thing.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    stanton, no questions asked
    This is just the beginning. Let's keep it up. History is bound to repeat itself. Let's hope that this time it's for the best.

    Giancarlo Stanton has a better bat but overall will be close and it seems like JH is injury prone
