JAVIER BAEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Opinion: Cubs Should Trade Javier Baez

The Cubs have had a busy offseason, adding Joe Maddon and Jon Lester to mix with their young talent.  If you are familiar with the Cubs team, you know they have more hitting prospects than positions to fill on the diamond.  I’m here to tell you who they should trade next to get the pitching they desperately need. A popular guy name is the rumor mill is shortstop Starlin Castro...

Javy Baez Will Be an All-Star

Javy Baez will be an All-Star in this league. Yes, the same Baez that has struck out 41.6% of the times he has stepped in the box. No, I do not buy my cars from Josh Gordon. I’ll admit, it is hard to defend a guy hitting .173 with as many strikeouts as Javy Baez but I’m not ready to call him a bust like some fans are, 37 games into his career. In your best 30 for 30 voice, what...

It’s better to offer no excuse than a bad one - George friggin’ Washington  Javier Baez has proven that regardless of your excuses, he isn’t any good and should not be a part...

Chicago Cubs: Weekend of promise

Although the Chicago Cubs have seemingly been out of the race for a playoff spot for quite some time now, this weekend against their arch rivals the St. Louis Cardinals shows that the Cubs are very close to competing with the National League Central’s cream of the crop. If this weekend is a sign of things to come for the Cubs, then there is good reason to be very optimistic as...

Javier Baez and His Swing

Javier Baez’s debut so far in the major leagues has been “hit or miss”. I mean that in a literal sense, Baez has either hit a home run or struck out in exactly half of his 74 major league at-bats. While he has shown some extreme power, his strikeout rate is troubling. Most of his power in generated from the wild hack of a swing he has. Of course, since he only 21, he still...

Chicago Cubs trade Rumors: Gary Sanchez edition

While the Chicago Cubs have been rumored to be looking for young starting pitching, another big area of need for the organization is the catching position. Currently, the Cubs do not have a catching prospect in the system that projects as a serviceable big league player. They did draft Kyle Schwarber, a catcher out of Indiana University, this year in the draft but most scouts feel...

Chicago Cubs: Three prospects who could make an impact this year

At 18-30, it goes without saying the Chicago Cubs could use a makeover. It nearly took three of four from the San Diego Padres, but lost on Sunday 4-3, resulting in a four game split. It’s not to say this Cubs team is not talented, it just isn’t consistent. Most Cub fans probably cannot stomach another season without winning the World Series. Yet the team is still looking...
