Heyward Batting Second For St Louis This Season

With the recent trade between St Louis and Atlanta the Cards have now lost RHP Shelby Miller and have gained outfielder Jason Heyward.  Last season Matt Carpenter batted first in the lineup.  Most likely he will be batting first again this season, given he is able to get on base most of the time.  With Heyward batting second, that leaves Holliday for third.  With his RBIs, batting average, and HR count it would be good for him to drive in any runs from Carpenter and Heyward.  After witnessing a Matt Holliday homerun, I think he would help the team in the third position.  Hopefully the Cardinals can go farther this season than last season.
