Chicago Cubs could end up with just one year of Kris Bryant in the end

If the COVID-19 epidemic prompts Major League Baseball to cancel the 2020 season, the Chicago Cubs would stand to lose control over critical players. Despite a reported agreement between Major League Baseball and the MLBPA, the fate of the 2020 regular season is still very much up in the air.

Wednesday Rockpile: A new twist on the Nolan Arenado-Kris Bryant debate

Wednesday Rockpile: A new twist on the Nolan Arenado-Kris Bryant debate

Photo by Helen H. Richardson/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Rockies news and links for Wednesday, March 25, 2020 Who would you rather have: Nolan Arenado or Kris Bryant? | The Athletic ($) Uh, Nolan. Obviously. This article starts by framing teams as gentlemen callers and players as the objects of their affections. So given the title, I guess the article is asking whether we would rather have sexual relations with Nolan Arenado or Kris Bryant? I’m not going to think too long or hard about that one. But I’m going with Nolan there too. The article then moves back into the...

The simulated Cubs 2020 season and you

The Show 2020 cover MLB The Show notes and other tidbits If you’re reading this, then you’re probably aware that we’ve run two broadcasts of simulated spring training games, with varying results. The Cubs split the games, losing to the Reds 3-0 and defeating the Padres 6-1. Kris Bryant went 3-for-8, best on the team. Kyle Hendricks threw a 116-pitch four-hitter last time out, leaving the game after he allowed a run in the ninth. The first game was run on MLB The Show 2019, the second on MLB The Show 2020. While the quality of the broadcasts isn’t much different, they’re quite a...

Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant has to be healthy for the Cubs to be successful

Chicago Cubs: Who are we really cheering for these days?

The recent trade talks of Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant may just be business as usual for MLB; for fans, it’s about losing the identity of your team. I felt this way in 1989; four years after the World Champion Chicago Bears won their last Super Bowl. In 1989, the Bears went 6-10, and familiar […] Chicago Cubs: Who are we really cheering for these days? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News and Fan Community

MLB: “Nothing more important than health of players, employees, fans”

We may not like it, but MLB did the right thing in postponing the start to the season. The redoubtable Washington Post MLB writer Thomas Boswell came right out and called for it Wednesday. Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant said concurrently that some things are bigger than baseball.

Cubs 16, Giants 3: The hits just kept on coming

Cubs 16, Giants 3: The hits just kept on coming

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Cubs brought out the big bats in Scottsdale. It’s still fairly early in spring training. And according to Len and JD on the TV broadcast, most Cubs players aren’t going to play games this spring as you would regular-season games — in other words, play full games, pinch hit at appropriate times, “play to win.” Nevertheless, Tuesday’s 16-3 Cubs win over the Giants is exactly what we’d like to see from this offense during the season — and they didn’t even have Kris Bryant in this game, as he was on an excused absence back in Las Vegas at a...

Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant and rethinking the role of leadoff hitter
