The Delightful Game Of Javier Baez
It is really fun to watch the game of Javier Baez after Sammy Sosa. Sammy, though, doesn’t hold a candle to Baez for excitement.
Baez is electric in the field, at-bat, and supercharged on the bases due to which many people wear Javier Baez jerseys to the game. Any other player that might have 4 steals of home in his young career, including one in a World Series game.
Most of those steals came to tie or take the lead. He has also got that swim move down, where he offers the close arm for a tag, then pulls that arm back whilst curving his body and reaching around the glove to reach the base/plate.
Baez is starting to live up to his hitting potential as he has become more patient at the plate. This brings more pitches into the strike zone which is dangerous for the pitcher. He is hitting for average, with power, and driving in runs as well as scoring runs.
Baez gets heaps of praise for tagging quickly, a skill he learned as a young lad. He is super quick with the double play whether starting it or in the middle.
He is by far the most exciting Cub of all time defensively. Anthony Rizzo is another great player of the Chicago Cubs which is why many of his fans come to the game wearing anthony rizzo Shirts
So, no matter where he is, he creates magic. That’s why he is called, “El Mago”. He is on my team, the Cubs, so I get to watch him a lot.
