WATCH: Javy Baez Just Stole Home! It Must Be the New Hair! (Naw, Javy is Just El Mago)

Chicago Cubs Highlights

I’d say that it’s the new hair that gave him the ability to pull this off, not unlike Samson … but then, Javy Baez has always pulled off incredible things like this:


That’s Jose Quintana pulling back late on a squeeze bunt attempt, and then the catcher deciding on a snap throw to third base. The problem for him? Baez is about as quick a decision-maker as there is in the game – he saw that throw coming, and he was off to the races. The Pirates didn’t even bother to make a throw home.

Baez was on third base, by the way, because he’d reached on an error, stole second base, and took third on a throwing error. Together with some Pirates mistakes that he took advantage of, Baez created that run entirely on his own.

Lookin’ good, Javy!
