Cubs News: Kris Bryant to his critics: "Keep 'em coming...Bring it"


by - Senior Editor -

Cubs standout third baseman Kris Bryant is finally healthy after a tough 2018 season dealing with shoulder pain that changed his natural swing.

Bryant was 2-for-2 in the Cubs' 8-4 spring training win against the Brewers on Saturday and was feeling pretty confident and motivated after the game talking to reporters.

"Definitely, a little bit," Bryant said about last season's criticism. "But, boy, it was great. When you're not playing, you have a whole lot of time to kinda sit there and either go through a Twitter rabbit hole and start seeing things about yourself or seeing things about 'trade him' and this and that.

"And I'm like, 'All right, I'm motivated. Keep 'em coming...Bring it.'"

Bryant could be a frontrunner eventually for the 2019 comeback player of the year award as he could have a huge year rebounding last season's 13 homer total.
