The game is over now, and the Chicago Cubs didn’t win, but it’s still spring training and there are always positives to be had.

Except for a sure hit that he may have taken a less-than-ideal route on, Kris Bryant looked good in left field, backing up a play on an overthrow to third base and initiating a double play when Joey Giavotella inexplicably took off from second base before the batter even took a swing.  

The defense on the whole was pretty good:

And a video:

Doubling up Mike Trout is a pretty big deal especially on that kind of ball in play. Glad Javier Baez didn’t break. There were homers too! Here’s Mike Olt:

And here’s pinch-hitter extraordinaire, Travis Wood:

They should just have Wood be the DH 😛

By the way, sorry about the unintended clickbait earlier, but that was pretty funny.
