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

I swear, every Kris Bryant story replaces the one that came before it as the Most Kris Bryant thing: https://theathletic.com/374291/2018/05/ ... k-so-easy/

This was July 23, 47 days after the Cubs drafted Kris Bryant with the No. 2 overall pick and almost two months since his junior season ended at the University of San Diego. After signing for $6.7 million, Bryant worked out for a few days at the Cubs’ Arizona complex and then debuted with the Boise Hawks, striking out in his first two at-bats at a Class-A level known for wild, inexperienced pitchers.

“I’m in the dugout with my phone,” Iapoce told The Athletic. “After the third [strikeout], Brandon texts me: ‘What’s the deal?’ I think it was the fourth one, Theo texted me and was like: ‘How bad is it?’ After the fourth one, me and Bill Buckner were in the dugout. Kris just walks by us and he’s like, ‘Tough start!’”

Was he the one known for going like 0-4 with 4 Ks in his first game at every new level or was that Javy?

That was Kris. Though he struck out 5 times in his Boise debut.

Kris’ rehab so far:

Reached on an error in the first:



Then, in the 2nd, he hit an RBI single to left on an 0-2 pitch.
