I get your sentiment, but after 34 year of age, players get old... quickly.
I can tell you this, if Hood is better than Keisel even at his age, then Ziggy is a DAMN fine player. Hell, I'll burn my Keisel on video, a promise right now, if Hood can come in and do better than him this season.
Heyward is a successor to Keisel; Hood is not.
