Javy Don’t Care If It’s Only Spring Training – Baez Makes Beautiful Play Up the Middle (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs News

The results of Spring Training games are, at best, secondary to a number of other considerations, including health and overall physical wellness.

Don’t tell Javy Baez. Because he’s not going to stop bein’ Javy.


Case in point, this beautiful, too-easy-for-him sliding stop up the middle:

He is so smooth that his slide and release were one fluid movement, leaving pllllllenty of time to get the runner.

In this moment, I hope it’s occurring to you as it is to me: we get an entire season of new Javy Baez defensive highlights. It’s like the debut of a new season of ‘Game of Thrones,’ but with more episodes and considerably sexier.
