Sun Funnies. Baez gets sent down.

I know.He's not ready.He needs more at bats and more seasoning and to get better in the field.But that was as exciting a Spring Training performance as I've ever seen, and I cannot wait for the day Javier Baez comes up to play at Wrigley Field.If it's 400' to the center field fence, you think a 452 footer at least gets to the concession stands under the scoreboard?
