Cubs News: Kris Bryant deletes Twitter during season
|Monday, April 1, 2019, 9:29 AM- -|
Cubs standout third baseman Kris Bryant is hoping for a resurgence 2019 season after shoulder inflammation issues slowed him down last season.
Early returns show that Bryant is strong and healthy as he is hitting .308 with a homer and 4 RBI through three games against the Rangers.
Bryant spoke with ESPN's Jesse Rogers recently and talked about how Twitter has been a vehicle of negativity at times for Bryant and not something he needs to check if he wants to keep his sanity.
"I delete Twitter during the season," Bryant said. "One thing can stick with you. It's crazy how much it's changed. Just since I got drafted [in 2013], it's changed. Back then, you could go through it, and there were negative things, and there were some good stuff. Now it's straight negativity. Nothing good comes from it."
The self-imposed Twitter ban is probably a smart thing for Bryant as nothing productive comes from wasting too much time on social media.
