Reason #2 to sign Jason Heyward - A Hunt and Peck

Speed kills

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

How I love the sight of this man running
Speed and grace unexpected and stunning.
Humans that size just do not move that quick.
If he left next year it would make me sick.
I would miss his gait, so smooth and divine.
Just pay the man - Jason Heyward, please sign!
