Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs are play­ing bet­ter base­ball these days and it’s show­ing up in mer­chan­dise sales. Rookie Kris Bryant’s jersey has been the top-seller since he was called up in mid-April, Ma­jor League Base­ball said Thurs­day. World Se­ries MVP Madi­son Bum­gar­ner had the most pop­u­lar jersey over­all dur­ing the first half of the sea­son, with Bryant at No. 2. Since MLB and the play­ers’ union started re­leas­ing these rank­ings dur­ing the 2010 sea­son, Bryant has the high­est rank­ing for a rookie; Yasiel Puig was No. 3 dur­ing the sec­ond half of the 2013 sea­son. Buster Posey, Clay­ton Ker­shaw, Bryce Harper, Hunter Pence, Mike Trout, Matt Har­vey, David Or­tiz and An­thony Rizzo round out the top 10. The As­so­ci­ated Press
