Chicago Cubs: Much ado about nothing?
Bryant’s situation, as previously covered here at Cubbies Crib and other outlets, is well-documented. Scott Boras is his agent, he’s a former MVP and he’s had a tremendous start to his career that puts him in the upper echelon of players in Major League Baseball.
He is going to get paid, sooner or later. However, insinuating or intimating (regardless of what you say your meaning was) that this was a recent occurrence is just plain wrong. While talks and casual conversations have no doubt been had in the past two offseasons, nothing new or noteworthy has come to fruition this past summer, according to Sharma and The Athletic.
Here’s hoping that we continue to acknowledge that words and semantics actually matter in reporting. And, more importantly, here’s hoping that regardless of a contract extension or not, Kris Bryant can have a monster 2019 in a Cubs uniform.
