Ah … Spring Training. The time of year when you grab your glove, find that bucket of balls, dust off your two massive silver chains, and hit the backfields for some drills.
In the latest spring video released by Marquee Sports Network, you can listen to a mic’d up Anthony Rizzo mess around with Kris Bryant and the gang on the backfields of Sloan Park, and it’s everything you’d hope it would be. But my favorite part – outside of Bryant messing with the sound guy by pretending not to make any noise when he talks – is Anthony Rizzo doing his best impression of a guy rounding the bags with a piano on his back, while KB circles in behind him.
And you can hear his two chains clinking all the while!

I’m not saying I’m faster than Anthony Rizzo, but I’m definitely faster than Anthony Rizzo – especially when he’s got those heavy chains on. He’s probably got me on fielding … and hitting … and … power … and bank account though. You win some, you lose some.
