Kris Bryant Named Rookie of the Year
2015 was a very good year for the Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant.
Winning the Wild Card game, clinching the Central League Division and then being in the National League Playoffs. Now he can add National League Rookie of the Year to his success.
NBC Chicago reports in an unprecedented vote Kris Bryant "received all 30 first place votes, making him the first unanimous winner of the award since Atlanta's Craig Kimbrel accomplished the feat in 2011."
"Bryant, had 26 home runs and drove in 99 RBI for the Cubs this season, beat out Matt Duffy of the San Francisco Giants and Jung Ho Kang of the Pittsburgh Pirates for the award, and became the first Cubs player to win the trophy since Geovany Soto won it in 2008."
Wow! just Wow! Congratulations to Kris Bryant. A job well done and you certainly made the Cubbies proud.
And to think that Kris was in Des Moines, Iowa at the beginning of the season. If the Cubs wouldn't have brought him up would they have gone as far as they did this season? Hmmm, it is something to ponder now isn't it.
Look out 2016, the Cubs are going to be a team to beat. The day of reckoning is coming for all of those that thought the Cubs would continue to be losers.
