At what point will Kris be making enough money a year to stop pimping various products in every picture? Everybody has endorsements, but you rarely ever see him wearing actual Cubs gear.

What? That answer should be "never."

Probably never since it’s smart and he can work it in to his everyday stuff and doesn’t really have to go out of his way to do it. He arguably can do the promotion stuff for his “living money” and never have to actually touch his baseball salary until he’s long out of baseball.

Yeah make whatever you can I guess. It is mildly irritating when he wears Adidas gear that is Cub blue. He stands out like a sore thumb when he is with other players. He immediately takes gear off or changes it post game.

When the Cubs start paying him as much as his endorsements, maybe he'll give it more consideration.

This is a really weird thing to get irked by. He’s not flying to LA the night before a game to film a commercial or showing up late to games because he got stuck in traffic coming back from a promo at a car dealership in northern Indiana. He literally is just working in his endorsements to his everyday life and maybe having to remember to @ a company or put a hashtag on a post. Also, how don’t you know this isn’t part of the Cubs helping him make more money since arbitration supresses him and he was held back for control. Could be “hey Kris we know we played games to have you make less money but we have relationships with XYZ companies that you can make more money by just throwing on a horsefeathering hat.”

I'm fine with the Cubs paying him the lowest amount he'll accept, but being annoyed that he's hawking products is flat-out weird. He's on a career trajectory where his money is going to make real money for him. Earning as much as he possibly can with low effort is incredibly wise.

literally everything else he was wearing was Cubs (I guess not his shoes) including Nike shorts.

I think the bar with getting annoyed at his endorsements is when he does something on the level of fake shaving a unibrow.

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

Also, 100% I didnt even notice the Red Bull logo until you mentioned something and I went back to look. To be honest, Im not a Red Bull drinker or fan at all but that hat looks way cozier than the Cubs ones the other guys are rocking, so wear whatever you want KB, as long as it keeps your pretty head warm.
