How many ballplayers have a resume that reads like this by age 25?
- Get diagnosed with cancer
- Beat said cancer to a pulp
- Hit 30 bombs in a Big League season
None that I know of. Rizzo is having a breakout season after showing plenty of promise early in his career. The Cubs’ front office took the Longoria approach (7 yr, 41 million) with Rizzo early in his career and seem to have made out like bandits as he’s second in the NL in bombs and in the top 10 in most run-producing categories.
