I'm sure all the twitter people that criticized him put the same amount of thought into their choices.

It doesn't even need to be that hard. Adjusted for position and park, Bryant was the most valuable offensive player in the NL. As long as you don't think Stanton or Rendon are 5-10 runs better than him defensively, then he's a logical option to be the most valuable.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I agree, Bryant is tanking this team. If he had just hit a few more dingers maybe he would've been the best player in the National League instead of the third best. Selfish pretty boy.

I feel like he gave the phone to his wife and let her respond. Then he added the "save it pal" and debated for 20 minutes whether he should hit send or not.

My wife’s uncle has more than a few screws loose. He claimed he got drunk off the sparkling cider at our wedding and couldn’t drive home.

Olney is going through ranking the top 10 players at every position, his 3B rankings came out today and he has KB ranked 4th behind Arenado (1), Jose Ramirez (2) and Rendon (3).

If you look only at last year, the four are pretty much even by average of bWAR and fWAR:

Arenado 6.4 WAR
Ramirez 6.8 WAR
Rendon 6.4 WAR
Bryant 6.4 WAR

Of course, that also ignores the fact that KB was the best 3B in both versions of WAR in 2016, 2 wins better than Arenado and 3.5 better than both of the other two. And it's not like Bryant is in his 30's where his best days might be behind him.

Yeah if you want to say just in 2017 then...whatever - differences in WAR like those are meaningless but I don't know how you rank Ramirez ahead of Bryant.

Yeah, I wouldn't trade KB for any other third-baseman either. KB is definitely better than J. Ramirez, and if you take Arenado out of Coors he'll still be a great player but his offensive stats won't be as impressive. It's either him or Machado for best defensive 3B, where they do add a TON of value.

A. Rendon is a great hitter and his BB/K last year was super impressive, but KB is a better player and has the higher ceiling.

KB should be #1 on that list and I think most executives and GMs would place him there (regardless of contract and years till FA).
