"He is a quiet kid, but he puts his work in and is one of the hardest workers," teammate Kris Bryant said. "He is young and that work he has already put in is setting him up for super-stardom. I first played with him in the Arizona Fall League and I remember thinking he is going to be a star."
"It's going to be tough to do but we still have the majority of our guys here," Bryant said. "We're extremely confident heading into it. I guess some of the pressure's off, 108 years is now behind us. But the goal from here on out is to win the World Series and if you don't do that, I consider every season after that a failure if you don't do that."
