Tonight is the night Cubs fans have waited for all offseason -- third baseman and budding superstar Kris Bryant is being called up to the active roster, according to multiple reports. Baseball has a hot new star and I mean that both in performance and looks.

Bryant, who was held in the minor leagues until today because Cubs wanted to screw him contractually by holding his rights a year longer (look it up), tore through spring training with nine home runs. He also seems incapable of taking a bad photo, even when sticking his tongue out:

When I posted the eight Cubs who would turn a straight guy gay, Bryant drew the most buzz. These Getty Images photos show you why:
