    Question I saw on Twitter, wanted to see how everyone thinks about it here..
    If they are considering to only extend one of these two, which one would you prefer them to keep, Javy or KB?

    Since Javy's bat is going to be a major ??? moving forward, I would say I rather extend KB.

    Iíve said it previously, and Iíll keep saying it over and over again:

    You extend Kris Bryant, and thatís a pretty easy decision IMO.

    I wouldnít extend either one honestly but if I had to choose itís pretty easy that it should be Javy, he would cost half of what Bryant would want, he has way more passion than Bryant and he doesnít stay injured unlike Kris. Javy wants to be a cub and his heart is always in the game and Bryant really doesnít want to be a cub anymore and itís blatantly obvious plus you could tell he really wanted to opt out of the season and be home with his kid and wife during this Wild covid year. Bryant has a vendetta against the cubs for the whole grievance thing and canít wait to be out of Chicago. He was **** this year and I personally wanted him traded back in Jan/feb and really should have been traded last July

    Only a matter of time before you and everybody else will feel the same . When Bryant hits .200 next year in a full season with 10 homers and 25 RBI and misses 30 games over the course of a full season then maybe you will say a year from now that yeah TN was dead on they should have traded him last year

    To me the answer is KB depending on cost, or probably neither.

    Though I'm sure that would happen with Hoyer, and if so, wouldn't things pretty much stay the same as far as ideas of building a franchise

    I dont know, Hoyer deserves it, hopefully he has some ideas that would be different then Theo with a rebuild

    We donít really know that it would be the same.

    Iím sure there are cases where they disagree.

    the philosophy of how to build a team...

    I mean, theyve been working together for the most part since 2004, I'm sure there been some disagreements on certain players but the overall philosophy on doing things I'm sure are probably somewhat identical
