Kris Bryant has been at AAA Iowa for four games, which is too short to be a true slump, but I think even he would admit there is an adjustment underway. Through four games, Bryant has struck out in 50% of his at bats, has yet to walk, and has just three hits.
The good news, of course, is that all three of those hits have been homers (so he’s sporting an hilarious .188/.188/.750 line – yes, he’s slugging higher at Iowa than he was at Tennessee (.702)).
Two of them came yesterday, and now we get to watch them. Up first, a shot to left:
And then a bomb to center:
Here’s another perspective on one of the homers from BN’er Patrick, which actually captures a Kris Bryant homer perfectly:
Why do I say that captures the homer perfectly? Because Patrick tries to follow the ball, it just seems to keep rising and going, and then everything gets blurry as the ball and existence, itself, fade into the ether. When Kris Bryant homers, you may lose yourself. And the ball will never land.
