I Just Said WOW: Kyle Schwarber and Javy Baez Gun Down a Runner at the Plate

Chicago Cubs Highlights

I didn’t even realize I did it until The Wife turned to me and asked, “What?”


I had apparently said a very loud “WOW” to myself as I watched the game on my computer.

Here’s why:

And another view to help you appreciate just how awesome those throws were:

Absolutely perfect.

So, yes, Kyle Schwarber misplayed that ball off the bat, but he recovered as quickly as he could, and then checks to see where the cutoff man is while he heads to the ball so that he can fire a hard strike immediately upon reaching the ball.

He does, and then Javy Baez makes a magnificent relay throw. Out. The Cubs retain the lead for the time being.

Like I said: WOW.
