They Did It Again: Javy Baez and Pedro Strop Can Predict the Future

Cubs Fun and Humor

Pedro Strop and Javy Baez getting together to predict awesome things is now my favorite baseball tradition.

Last year, when he was struggling badly in Arizona, Baez got a pick-me-up from Strop, who told Baez to get his head on straight because a big night was coming. And it was. Then, earlier this season, it was Baez who predicted the future, telling Strop that he was going to win that night’s game … an insane prediction, because it was the game Baez was not expected to play with his heel injury. Then Javy walked it off.

And now the duo has done it again with Baez’s game-winning homer yesterday:

Hey, maybe it’s one of those things where confirmation bias is taking over, and we hear about the predictions only when it comes true. But I choose to believe instead that Baez and Strop almost never talk about what’s going to happen later that game, and it just so happens that when they do, it ALWAYS comes true. That’s more fun.

I’m gonna need some lottery numbers, stat. I’m thinking something with a 9 and a 46 in it.
