Chicago Cubs: Kris Bryant had some interesting things to sayVincent Pariseon September 16, 2022 at 9:55 pm

The Chicago Cubs had a big win over the Colorado Rockies on Friday afternoon by a final score of 2-1. They have been very good lately as this is now their fourth straight win following a sweep of an elite New York Mets team.

Unfortunately, an old friend Kris Bryant was unable to play for the Rockies in this one as he is recovering from an injury. It hasn’t been the best year for Kris Bryant with his new team for a variety of reasons but the injury is playing a big part in it this year.

For a while, it was unclear if the Cubs would end up moving on from Bryant or if they would keep him. As it became clear that he wasn’t signing an extension in Chicago, the rumors started to swirl. Eventually, the Cubs traded him to the San Francisco Giants.

Bryant made his return to Wrigley in the lineup last summer with San Francisco and he was honored by the team and the crowd. There is no doubt that he will always be remembered for what he helped the team accomplish during his Cubs tenure.

Chicago Cubs fans are always going to think highly of Kris Bryant’s career.

Of course, this is a player that was a Rookie of the Year, MVP, and World Series Champion with the team. A guy like that is always going to be remembered fondly, especially when the World Series drought was 108 years old.

Even though he didn’t play in this game and won’t play in this series, he had some interesting things to say ahead of the game.

For one, he had some advice for Willson Contreras. Of course, coming off a tough free agency experience himself, he knows that this isn’t going to be easy for Willson.

He seemed to think that Contreras handled the deadline the right way. He also thinks very highly of Willson as a person and as a player.

He also had some interesting things to say about his health and his return to Chicago. He is someone that, as mentioned before, has had a tough year and knows that he needs to work on getting healthy ahead of 2023. It is good to hear him say that he feels better.

Bryant has always been someone that has handled adversity well and that isn’t going to change any time soon. Nobody should be surprised if he comes out and has a good year with Colorado in 2023. Both sides have moved on.
