Kris Bryant: Good at Baseball

There was very little about today's Cubs game versus the Angels that was worth talking about, but there was a seedling of hope burrowed in the manure of this game.

After the "starters" were mostly pulled in the 5th inning or so, we got to see Albert Almora, Jorge Soler, Arismendy Alcantara, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant all on the field at the same time (also: Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters). That was pretty cool.

I didn't get a chance to watch most of it, but I did get to see the highlight of the game when Albert Almora roped a double down the left field line and after a Soler strikeout looking, Kris Bryant worked a 3-2 count, fouled off a few pitches and launched a HR over the 420 foot mark in CF.

Baez also absolutely smoked a ball, but it was right at Ian Stewart (who has resurfaced with the Angels).

Darwin Barney hit a solo homerun earlier for the Cubs only other run, so there is that. The rest of the game pretty much sucked balls. Cubs lost 15-3.
