I can't write this stuff.
I'm not a reporter or some kinda pro guy with access to players or scouts.
I'm a simple cave man Cub Fan, so all I can do is try to show what it feels like.
Like after reading about Kris Bryant.
I went from comments on The Cub Reporter, which led me to a story on Bleacher Nation, which led me to the root of it all at Fan Graphs.
Kris Bryant is making me all woozy and I've never once seen him even swing a bat.
Read those numbers.
Read about what his approach to hitting.
Buddy, if that's the Cubs Way, then I'm all... okay well I was already all in, but this Kris Bryant stuff just makes it more "in" or something.
It was my Dad's birthday this last weekend, so we flew out to Arizona to surprise him.
On the way to Prescott, we got hungry for lunch and saw this sort of cowboy lookin' place off the highway called the Rock Springs Cafe.
It had a big sign that said "saloon" out front, so I was all in.
But THEN, I saw another sign that said this:
THEY HAVE PIE?
I'm even more in.
So, today's lesson is that Kris Bryant is like.. the pie... at the Cubs Way Saloon.
Seriously, they had pie.
Like every kind of pie you can imagine.
If you're ever north of Phoenix, you gotta stop.
