Offense

Kris Bryant was for a while, one of the best offensive players in the National League. Ever since his first big injury, he has come down just a little bit but has been better than people give him credit for. His awesome offensive numbers have allowed him to accumulate accolades such as Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player, and three All-Star selections in six seasons. Basically, whenever Bryant is healthy, he is an elite hitter.

There were obviously some issues in 2020 because he only played in 34 games of the 60 that were mandated by the league after the COVID-19 pandemic. He did have only five RBIs going into the final series of the season between the Cubs and White Sox and he managed to have a 6 RBI series. He does enjoy playing at Guaranteed Rate Field because his numbers there are awesome. It would certainly be a comfortable situation for him if he was forced to make that change.

The cool thing about Bryant coming to the White Sox would be his supporting cast. He already knows what it is like to hit around superstars so coming to the White Sox would be like his early Cubs days. If he was inserted into the middle of this lineup he would see some of his numbers rise again. If he can hit 30 home runs and have north of 75 RBIs again, it would be a fantastic turnaround for him after 2020.
