Even if you remove the Cubs fan element of your identity, wouldn’t you agree that Javy Baez is right there in the top tier of MLB players that show off the best of the sport? Not only the talent, but also the fun, the passion, the competitiveness, the care, the effort, the verve?
Javy is not alone in that group – the World Series will fortunately feature several, including Jose Altuve, Max Scherzer, George Springer, Carlos Correa, Juan Soto, Anthony Rendon, and Sean Doolittle among the many – but he sure does seem to be one of the first guys you’d think of. He’s just great.
Thus, when ‘MLB The Show’ came up with this year’s cover athlete, how could they not go with El Mago:
