A couple of reminders up front, just in case you forgot: (1) the St. Louis Cardinals think of their fans as – and the fans think of themselves as – the “Best Fans in Baseball”; and (2) Jason Heyward has played for both the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs in his career.
With those reminders in mind, I share this quote and clip with a big, devilish smile, from Heyward: “We have the best fans in baseball. And that’s not a dig at anybody. People have their opinions.” I love it:
Jason Heyward doesn't care about preseason predictions.

Hey, he might not mean it as a dig at anyone in particular, but I’ll certainly offer it as one.
