Relatively speaking, the core talent of the Chicago Cubs is still very young. Of course, Anthony Rizzo, Jason Heyward and Kyle Hendricks are all 30 years old, but otherwise, Chris Bryant (28 Age) is the oldest among them, followed by Wilson Contreras (28), Kyle Schwarber (27), Javy Baez (27), the largest David Porter (27), Victor Karatini (26), Albert Almora Jr. (26), Ian Harp (25) and Nico Horner (23).
This may not be the case, because most of these players have been present since 2015-2016, but they are still very young. Of course, there are talents.
Unfortunately, although they may be young and talented, under the control of the future team, they are not all young and talented. But this is what Chris Bryant hopes to change:
Kris Bryant, in keeping the core as long as possible:
“Let everyone stay here and play together to see what we have. This is really cool. When we are old and fat and tired, we leave here. That̵7;s really great.”

Earlier today, Bryant said that the changes in the Great World (COVID-19) and his own small world (a brand new baby!) may make him more inclined to accept the Chicago Cubs renewal. And he wanted to take the whole gang!
I just couldn’t see 43-year-old Kyle Schwarber shining a laser at the gray Willson Contreras behind the board in the left field in 2036.
If I decide, then each of these people will be expanded, which will not only keep the band united, but because in the next few years, cost certainty may be more important than ever. So, I’m with you, Chris. All signatures. Let’s see the beer ooze after a year or two.
