Kris Bryant, the future star of the cubs, is already being put in an elite class with big named superstars. Why? Please explain this to me. The kid has only played 7 games and they are already saying he is in a class with elite players. Don't get me wrong, the kid is a stud and can flat out play but to say he is in an elite ball player is totally wrong. He hasn't established himself that status yet. He still has to prove himself. If the kid hits 40 home runs and drives in over 100 RBIs for 2 or three years in a row then yes he is considered elite, but right now he is nowhere close to that status. They are putting him on too high of a pedestal. Like I said earlier if he had been in the majors for more than 2 years then they can start saying this stuff but right now is way too early. I'm not calling the kid overrated, he is the real deal, he can play, but giving him this status is just not right since he hasn't done much. I mean they are putting him with names like Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera, Clayton Kershaw, ect. Lets be realistic now, he should be a front runner for ROY. But lets not get carried away by putting him in an elite class. He still has to mature and learn, the more he plays in the majors the more experienced he will be and the better he will be and then we can say he should be in that elite class and he is gonna struggle he might have a sophomore slump next year, witch I doubt that would happen, that will be the year he learns and becomes that elite athlete.
