David, from Alaska, sent me a PWE the other week. It was a small haul, but it packed a punch.
These two young hitters are just learning how to make everyday adjustments against proven MLB arms. It's a little frustrating knowing that Soler is capable of hitting 0.290 in the majors, but instead he leads the league in strikeouts. And who would have thought we'd have to wait twenty games before Bryant would launch his first big league home run? These guys are better than they've shown
I can't wait for them to mature into solid hitters who are comfortable with their game, like Anthony Rizzo is now. But, there were a couple years in which would all too frequently get himself out. As a Cubs fan I sometimes wish I could fast forward to the summer of 2017. Bryant, Soler, and Rizzo should be one of the more formidable trios in baseball by then! (knock on wood)
Patience, young grasshopper. Patience.
Thanks for the cards, David! These will go straight into my Cubs binder!
