"To talk with some of my favorite people. Around the country, and my next guest is uniquely qualified to talk some baseball with us because of what he does for a living and where he grew up. Zach's Ayman is one of the Cubs broadcasters. He does an amazing job on 6 72 score. In Chicago, but also because he knows a lot about the New York Mets as well. So I wanted to bring him on to talk about the possibility of Kris Bryant joining the mats, but also just the league in general, Zach. Thanks for joining me this morning. I appreciate it. Thanks for the kind words Good morning. What's going on? Well, all right. I want to know First of all this reunion that's happened because this happened since we we last chatted the reunion that happened between the Cubs. And Jake area to what made the Cubs want to bring Jake area to back. I think it's more Jake area to being open to coming back to the Cubs. I think the reality is that While there's this belief that the Cubs aren't contending in 2021, they are contending in 2021. They might not be a championship contender is we sit here right now? But I think the National League Central is very much up for grabs. So I think when you look at the fact that they still have the core in terms of their light up, and when I say the core I'm talking about specifically Anthony Rizzo, Chris Brian, have your bias and was two controllers. You have those four guys your light up. You're gonna have an opportunity to compete and win every single game that you play. So what's the next step? Make sure that you have enough starting pitch Carl Hendrix of the top rotation. They acquired Zach Davies during the off season and a surprising new Darvish trade. We'll get to that pick. But you need to fill out the rest of that rotation, and Jake Areata was available. I think that they know what he's about. He knows what they're about. And are they expecting the cheek area of the they last saw back in 2017? No, but I think he sees an opportunity where he could be a big part of What they plan on doing this season, and they see an opportunity where you get him in there, Pitch lab. You tweak some things, and perhaps you get just a little bit more out of him. Than the Phillies did. And that makes your rotation just a little bit better. Chris Brian, I think people around the country would be like, man. I Chris. Brian, you look that guy won every single award that you could win. It looked like a guy that might be a cup for life. Why are we hearing his name associate it in so many different trade in orations. I just think that's the landscape of baseball right now. So the reality is when you look at this Cubs whatever you wanna call it, run Dynasty, whatever you want to label it asked It's two different tenders the first three years 2015 2016 2017. Three beat playoff runs, including the championship. Most Cubs fans never thought they would see. And Bryant was phenomenal. In those three seasons in 2015, he was the rookie of the year in 2016 years, the MPP in 2017 he put up For him. A lot of career numbers in major offensive categories. 2018 injuries started to hit. He got beaned in Colorado early on in the year hasn't really been the same player since also busted his shoulder and could not perform at the level that we saw 15 16 17, then in 2019. Injured. His knee wasn't the same player that he was in 15 16 17. And what do you know? The Cubs haven't been the same team and then last year of variety of different ailments in the short season and oblique a finger, a wrist injury and dealing with the pandemic as well, which was a major issue for a lot of different players. Around baseball. But in those three seasons, Chris Bryant didn't look like Kris Bryant, and Not surprisingly, the Cubs have zero playoff wins during that time. So I think that's just the reality of the business. Now that being said The Cubs were listening. If if you call and maybe a knock their socks off, Yeah. Kris Bryant may be available. But they're not giving him away. Oh, so that's why he's still a member of the franchise doing pre imposed doing. Calling the fifth inning of games on the Cups flagship station in Chicago. You've got a unique position when it comes to talking about Kris Bryant. What's this guy like? He's been really open about some of his his feelings about how bad of a season he had in 2000 and 20. For a guy that looks like he has everything. He also seems to be pretty sensitive. And I mean that in a positive way on understanding of real human being behind the smile, the good looks and the money. Would use the word authentic. I think he's a guy who's as genuine as they come. I think he loves the game with a passion. I think This. This will sound a little crazy, but I think you'll understand what I'm talking about. The game came easy. It's not an easy game, and he had to work his tail off to get to the point. Where he made it look easy in 15, 16 and 17. And then beginning in 2018. It starts with the insurance that I talked about earlier for the first time in his baseball life, and I'm going back to the time that he was a little leaguer. He had to endure. Baseball adversity. The game became hard because just getting physically right became hard and its sap them of the ability to be. We was for his first three seasons as a major leaguer, but he's still a young guy. And the reason that I go back to the fact that the Cubs aren't giving him away is if he's healthy. There is absolutely zero doubt in my mind that Kris Bryant will be one of the best players in Major League baseball in 2021. He is a legitimate superstar when he's right. A lot was made this off season when the Cardinals went out and acquired Nolan era Nada and it's a huge move because it signaled the first team In the National League Central this offseason that appeared to be going for it as opposed to Maybe retooling rebuilding, resetting whatever you want to phrase it as, but that's basically what every team in the National League Central had been doing this offseason until Aaron Otto was required by ST Louis. I would submit that if Kris Bryant is healthy. It's like adding an All Star for the Cubs this season because he will put up numbers. As good as any slugger that exists in the game today. That's how talented Kris Bryant is and to boot. He's a terrific guy in terms of personality. I also think that we don't talk about the other things that he brings to the field. He can play a variety of different positions all well. He is an outstanding base runner. He's a complete baseball player when he's healthy. But unfortunately for him the last three years he hasn't been healthy base, always any performance oriented industry and when you don't perform, that's when the ugly business of baseball rears its head. Zach's Ayman of the Cubs radio network, joining me here on CBS Sports Radio..

"Me is a baseball fan. When I watch Chris Bryant, there's only one paycheck Kris Bryant can't hit. And that's a high letter high fastball that if they're gonna call and more often, I mean if I'm pitching against him. I would never throw it. There are times when I'm watching a cubs game where the pitch is on its way. And I can tell Chris Ryan's gonna hit a Homer because you just see where it is. If it's at could you believe what was it last year? It was last year beginning of last year where they had the Sunday night game against the cardinals. And he talked to Alex Rodriguez, and he told Rodriguez exactly where he liked to pitch of saying to myself. Why would you do that? Don't tell everybody where you like to pitch. They'll never throw it to you. They're giving free scouting advices for other teams. He shouldn't have done that. Because he said he actually likes it inside and a little bit little bit above the knees on the inside part of the plate later that game. He had all run where the pitch went exactly there. I don't want to the poll questions after coming in second for Machado should the White Sox. Have gone after Harper. Fifty five percent said yes. Forty five dollars. That's not bad. That's that's almost fifty fifty. And who was the better player? Sixty eight percent of the people said Bryce Harper is a better player. Dow Felix you heard right. I said earlier Scott Miller from Bleacher report, he was out with BUSTER all the and he said that he talked to a high ranking executives. There was involved with all the stuff. He said one of these guys you the players goal for forage. They'll help you win at certainly not Bryce Harper because Manny Machado can help you with defense. Bryce can't. He's one of the worst outfielders. He he's one of the worst outfielders statistically baseball last year. Yeah. And then what makes Machado great rates that he plays? Good defense. And he's he's a good offensive player as well. Right. Yeah. It's it's interesting. It's really interesting. I wonder if it wasn't for Manny Machado antics during the playoffs if he would have gone more love during this off season. Yeah. I wonder. Two. There were teams that said, listen, we're not going after all just because of all the way the way he acted a fool in the playoffs and the World Series. We come back a couple of other things before right here. Top of the hour here on ESPN one thousand. Tropicana.

"Cubs could not afford to have both chris bryant embrace harper on the same payroll so again that's he you don't know that's true the cubs have tons of money and like everyone else a professional sports their total whores they put advertising everywhere wrigley field is a carnival of product placement and advertising placement and then i'm not ripping them for that that's what they should do but there's there's plenty of money to tv monies insane in baseball so the question here that we need to kickaround do you believe steve that brice harper really does want to play for the cubs because that was the initial state and i know game has put ice water on it and then tried to poohpooh it and sales associate app but let's start with that and let's assume the position that that is act but do you do i believe do i think that's accurate i i don't know too much about brice harper but what i do know about price arbor that is not the case that that is the answer to that is no does you really want to play for the cubs no will who does he really want to play for the answers he doesn't have a team that he really wants to play for the reason why is because have bat will travel will start with that brice harper is a baseball mercenary this is not about comfort this is not about playing for the team he liked as a child which would be the yankees it's also certainly not about a hometown discount brice harper is looking for one thing and one thing only and if he can fight in chicago argonne sign with the cubs it'd be confined it with the minnesota twins so go to the twins this guy know what he wants only at the finish the sends you read my mind.
