Just to add to the Heyward =/= Brown sentiment...

The first major league pitch Heyward ever saw was game 1 of last season, Brown has a shortened major league season + playoffs under his belt. While this may not seem like a huge deal, it gave Brown some knowledge going into his offseason training regimen that Heyward did not have on what to prepare for.

If Brown outproduces Heyward's rookie year (assuming he plays more than in a platoon role) I wouldn't be surprised, but it also doesn't mean that Brown > Heyward.
