No matter your feelings on the Kris Bryant situation with the Cubs, you have to admit that this Adidas billboard outside Wrigley Field is pretty awesome. Click on the tweet for a closer look at the billboard and its proximity to the ballpark:
Trolling the Cubs? Well played, Adidas.
Bryant was optioned to Triple-A Iowa this week after batting .425 with nine home runs and a 1.652 OPS over 44 plate appearances this spring. The 23-year-old led the minors with 43 homers between Double- and Triple-A last season. It’s no secret that this is all about service time. If the Cubs wait 12 days into the 2015 season to call up Bryant, they’ll ensure that his free agency will be delayed by a season. The system is flawed, but it’s a no-brainer to not take advantage of it. Look for Bryant to make his major league debut in mid-to-late April.
