It’s been a bit since we’ve checked in with our buddy Kris Bryant; but yeah this kid is awesome. When I think about Bryant, I think about the batting practice and Home Run Derby I saw him at live last year in Cincinnati.
You really can’t have an appreciation for how much different a ball looks off his bat than any other player. It is a high, arching, swooping fly ball that just keeps traveling and lands deeper than you think it will. I guess it could have also been the angle, but I don’t think so.
Today in a classic little afternooner at Wrigley, he got rookie Julio Urias real good.
The Cubbies won this game 7-2. It was the second straight day that Bryant homered; his 14th. Yesterday he got Michael Bolsinger, too.
