Crystal Ball: Kris Bryant, 3B, Chicago Cubs

New, 9 comments
Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

By reader request, here is a Crystal Ball for Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs.

The Crystal Ball is NOT a PREDICTION in the sense of me saying "this is how the guy will turn out." The idea is to generate discussion about a player by presenting one possible outcome for his career, based on what we currently know about him.

It is not just thrown together; I try to make them logical, based on the outcomes of players who were similar at the same stage of their career. Sometimes a CB represents a maximal outcome, sometimes it is more of a middle ground.

What do you think of this one?
