MLB Now: Kris Byrant

I made my first appearance on MLB Now’s new set in Studio 21 on Thursday in an abbreviated installment of the show (due to day games being broadcast on the Network). From the roughly 20 minutes of show we did, MLB has posted this clip discussing what was then the still-unofficial promotion of Kris Bryant on Friday.

For more depth on Bryant, here are the things I have written about him this spring at SI.com:

Preaching patience for talented Cubs trio of Soler, Baez and Bryant (March 11)

Don’t blame Cubs for taking advantage of rules with Kris Bryant (March 18)

For Cubs, there’s no longer a reason not to call up top prospect Kris Bryant (April 16)

Season’s Previews

With what I’ve been calling Preview Week drawing to a close, here’s a catch-all post the various preview stuff I participated in this week, silly as some of it may be.

At SI.com:

Expanded experts’ picks

Ten Must-See Games for 2013

Five must-see series in April

Reading into spring statistics: Which players’ spring performances are likely a sign of things to come

At SB Nation:

The Year in NL Pitching

2003 MLB season preview: The unexpected (with the other Designated Columnists)

Pitchers are people too: Can the Yankees’ rotation guide them to October baseball?

And while I’m at it, here are the other Hit and Run posts I wrote this week:

Buster Posey extension good for Giants, bad for free agency

Wainwright extension a perfect compromise for both sides

Johan Santana’s career threatened by reoccurrence of shoulder tear

Lohse agrees to terms with Brewers, ending long national nightmare

Oh, and I also wrote the post below this one, It’s Not Tim McCarver’s Fault You Hate Him.
