Another Game, Another Freakishly Good Defensive Play From Javy Baez (Video)

I don’t…I just…huh? Normal humans can’t move that way, can’t react in that manner. All standard reactions to watching Ednel Javier Baez conduct his daily regimen of wizardry on the diamond. First it was the slide-to-flip-to-barehand-to-throw-from-butt play that might have been the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. Even more amazing than the time I saved those old people...

Javier Baez dives into stands to make this incredible catch

Javier Baez just missed throwing out Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto from his behind when the Chicago Cubs faced Miami on Thursday.Which may be why the Cubs third baseman got off his butt and made this even more impressive play, diving headfirst into the stands to nab Realmuto's pop foul in the fourth inning in Miami the very next night. The Cubs beat the Marlins 5-4 on Friday to...

I Am Legend: Javier Baez Makes Another Insane Play

I have said it before and I’ll say it again: Javier Baez is quite possibly the Cubs’ best baseball player. That’s a really amorphous term, so feel free to discuss amongst yourselves as to what it means. But no one else on this team possesses the same “Oh sh!*” potential. Not Rizzo, not Bryant. No one. Javy’s a freaking drive-in theater of baseball awesomeness, just pop...

Cubs' Baez makes beautiful throw from his bottom but just misses

Spoiler that you should have inferred from the headline: Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto was ruled safe after umpires reviewed the play, nevertheless it was a defensive gem from Chicago Cubs third baseman Javier Baez. (Check out video above.)Baez ranged a few steps toward short on a hard chopper by Realmuto and managed to get enough glove on it to stop the ball and knock it into the...

Watch: Javy Baez Nearly Made the Greatest Play Ever

I know a lot of words, but I’ve got nothing in the mental Rolodex to adequately describe what Javier Baez just did. There was some unintelligible yelling at the TV when it happened and I think I might have formed something akin to “Stop!” and “No!” With two out in the 6th, Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto laced a ball to the gap between short and third that Baez, playing at...

The Cubs have trade chips, but Javier Baez is not one of them

In my latest Full Count video, I talked about how the Cubs are extremely reluctant to trade Kyle Schwarber -- they believe that after he returns from knee surgery next season he will emerge as one of the top 10 hitters in the game.Javier Baez is not as mature a hitter as Schwarber at 23 -- he still walks too little, strikes out too much. But Baez's power potential from the right...
