he at least basically admitted that it was dumb and he did it just to do something different
It’s not that I doubt the Cubs’ talent. It’s that I fear the Cardinals’ malarky. It’s been too quiet recently.
MESA, Ariz. – As much as Kris Bryant steamed at the time, he kept his mouth shut and took it when the Cubs used the service-time rules against him as a rookie in 2015
Two All-Star appearances, an MVP award and one historically slow free agent market later, Bryant sees the writing on the wall and doesn’t plan to be quiet anymore.
“This offseason is one that really opened my eyes,” said Bryant, who hadn’t considered broader labor issues a priority. “But now it is. I need to study up, have my voice heard, continue to learn, because this is going to affect us for years to come. And I’d be foolish not to kind of offer myself out there.”
Bryant, who hopes to replace Jake Arrieta as the Cubs’ player rep when the players make that decision this month, is one of a fast-growing number of players around the game speaking up after being awakened by a free agent market that stunned top free agents by a sudden deflation in offers, and even raised whispers of collusion.
