"The records on the field are way more important because when you're doing that, you're helping the team. you get paid millions of dollars to do something you've loved since you were 4 years old". Going into the deadline, it was thought that Bryant could break the record for a player's first year of arbitration potentially surpassing Ryan Howard's $10M deal from 10 years ago. Howard's first-year arbitration eligible stood for 10 seasons. During the 2017 season, Bryant hit for a career-best.295 batting average and a total of 29 home runs and 73 RBIs.
