Kris Bryant isn't looking to Trevor Bauer for advice about flying his new drone
In addition to pushing cars up hills and hanging with Nelly, the offseason is a time for personal growth -- like, say, picking up a new hobby. Kris Bryant knows this as well as anyone, which is why he recently got himself a drone:
Of course, while undeniably cool, drones are a bit of a sensitive subject to baseball fans. We've been down this road before: During the 2016 postseason, Cleveland's Trevor Bauer accidentally sliced his pitching hand on a drone blade, then had to leave a start in the ALCS when said hand started leaking blood:
So you'll forgive Cubs fans for being a little hesitant about this whole "franchise player acquires potential death trap" thing. But don't worry, Chicago: Bryant may have taken up drones, but he doesn't plan on turning to Bauer for advice.

Bauer isn't giving up so easily, though:
Hey @KrisBryant_23 want to fly drones in spring training and get dinner after? Hit me up man it'll be fun 👌👌- Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) January 19, 2019
Hey, shoot your shot.
