For those who don’t already know, I’m a die-hard Cub Fan. And with that being said, I’m the 2016 NL MVP’s harshest critic when it comes to his initial plate approach. There is no denying that he is one of those hitters that pitchers shit their pants while facing; but KB has got to learn to jump on fastballs early in counts! My mans gets 0-2 in the count way too often, and still managed to have 39 HRs and 120 RBIs with a BA of .292 in the 2016 Season. Non-baseball players really don’t understand the significance of being ahead in the count vs. being behind in the count, please advise below:

 After 0-1 count: .221 average, .592 OPS

After 0-2 count: .166 average, .438 OPS

After 1-0 count: .268 average, .796 OPS

After 2-0 count: .281 average, .955 OPS

Yes, Kris Bryant had an amazing 2016 Season, but he can improve these numbers drastically by getting ahead in the count. The numbers never lie, it is statistically harder to hit when your 0-2. If you’re a Cub fan reading this, I can guarantee this is something you will be looking for every time he comes to the plate. Hopefully KB gets a chance to read this and stops getting lost early in the count. @KrisBryant_23
