At first they thought it was nothing at all. And then they thought it was silly. And then they thought it was trouble.
And finally, the Pirates broadcast thought Javy Báez’s unbelievable baserunning play was something they had never, ever seen before:

That’s about the right reaction (shy of ripping the first baseman for not just, you know, walking over and touching first base … ). Bonus props to the Pirates broadcast for also showing the perfect shot of Anthony Rizzo and Justin Steele losing it. Figured that would just be for the Cubs broadcast. Kindness.
