More Fun with Javy Baez’s One-Pitch, Sore-Heel Walk-Off

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs wound up going just 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position last night. But OF COURSE that one hit came on the final pitch of the night: the only pitch seen by Javy Baez.

It’s still TBD whether Baez will be able to start tonight for the Cubs – Victor Caratini may have had to play second base if the Cubs hadn’t won it right there – but, even in his hobbled state, Baez can still square a ball up.

Don’t swing at the first pitch … er, actually, Javy can do whatever Javy wants:

(Also, remember that May 8 walk-off? It came against the Bryce-Harper-led Nationals on Mother’s Day.)

More fun from Javy’s big moment …
