Cubs News: Anthony Rizzo reacts to Kris Bryant trade rumors


by - Senior Editor -

The offseason has been tough at times for both members of Bryzzo.

Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was in attendance for a team charity event on Thursday and spoke on several subjects to the media, including his buddy Kris Bryant being talked about in several trade rumors this offseason.

"I have talked to him a couple of times in the offseason," Rizzo said. "He is excited that he and his wife Jess are having a baby. I think he is in a good place. He knows too that it's a rumor until a trade happens. He is the MVP of the league a couple of years ago. We know we want him on our side, that is for sure."

Rizzo knows that the only thing that the players can control is to try to focus on the game of baseball, not all the random rumors being floated by teams, media, and different agents.

"There are a lot of guys' names being floated around. We know nothing about it. As players, we can't control that. We need to focus on what we can control for the next nine months or at least until spring training,g because you never know what will happen. Now is the time to lock it in and just focus on baseball."
