I really hate to see Prado go. Say what you want to about Prado, but you simply cannot understate his valuable contributions to Atlanta. His versitality and production in the 2 hole are very hard to find. I thought he was one of the better 2 hole hitters in the game because he understood his role. He worked counts and drove the ball to the gaps, exactly what a two hole hitter is supposed to do. Going forward, I think you'll see Heyward man the 2 hole. He had some of his best production there under Cox. It also frees Justin Upton to hit 3rd and it sets up the righty lefty splits very very well. This lineup has enormous potential. I can't wait to see these guys on the field.
