There are no rumors in this post, save perhaps for the rumor that Kris Bryant chartered a private barge to transport all of his recently-received awards to a private island off of the coast of Santa Barbara (also awarded to him). As I said: that’s just a rumor.
Instead, you can just enjoy this, courtesy of the Tennessee Smokies:

Very cool to see that it was a whole big thing for Bryant at the Winter Meetings. He won the Joe Bauman Award, by the way, by virtue of having the most homers on the year in the minor leagues. There will be many more awards in his future, and probably a private island or two.
