JAVIER BAEZ NEWS

I Will Wear Your Golden Sombrero, Señor Baez

I'm concerned, you're concerned. We all have concerns. This is a post concerning Javier Baez and our concerns. More specifically, this is about how concerned we should be if we own him in keeper or dynasty formats. If you're looking for just the 2015 value Baez brings to the table, check out Grey's Top 20 2nd basemen. Honestly, if you're not reading all of his rankings you're doing...

Cubs tickets and other shenanigans

After another exciting day educating America’s youth, I came home, did my work, then perused Cubs.com because I heard that tickets were already on sale.  I don’t think single game tickets are on sale yet, but it appears that the six-packs and a flex-pack are available. I checked out the Bobblehead Pack, which has the most Saturdays (so I don’t have to miss school days), and...

Theo To Cubs Fans, “Hold Us Accountable”

It has been a long and painful ride for most long time Chicago Cubs fans. No matter how much you have bought into the plan set by Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Cubs ownership, fans have gone through their summers missing something that typically fueled them, Cubs optimism. Cubs fans have always had a sense on opening day that this could be the year, next year has finally come, but...

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...

Is Addison Russell on the Trade Block?

The Cubs have a problem. It’s a good problem, but a problem nonetheless. With Starlin Castro, Javier Baez, Arismendy Alcantara, and Addison Russell headlining the youth movement in the organization, the Cubs have something of a logjam. For the short term, Alcantara has been in centerfield, while Baez has played second base. However, with Russell expected to make it to the major...

Plus/Minus and Baez’s strikeout problem

You all remember Phil Rogers and his beautiful plus/minus system he developed? Well, it’s time to to put it to use. The other day I was reading the news and I read that the US had announced a successful airstrike against IS in which 15 militants, 4 tanks and 4 civilians were killed. That sounds like disastrous results to me, but who I am to question the wisdom of the United States...

Chicago Cubs: Losing streak ended

Finally, the Chicago Cubs felt the taste of victory. It had been over a week since the Cubs have been able to shake hands to celebrate a victory after losing seven straight games. They were able to prevail last night in Pittsburgh and once again get into the win column with a 6-4 victory. If this win is in any way an indication of things to come the rest of the season, the Cubs should...

Javier Baez almost breaks the sound barrier

The Cubs won tonight against the Pirates, and at 65-83, they have only 14 games left and must win at least 8 of those to avoid 90 losses for those of you who care about these things.  For those of you wondering about draft position, they’re #6 (most likely #7 due to the Astros’ Aiken/Nix snafu) so it’ll take a bit of a run plus a collapse from some other teams to drop out...

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...

Chicago Cubs: Much needed off day

Chicago Cubs Yesterday’s off day could not have come at a more perfect time for the Chicago Cubs.

It’s no secret; the Cubs have one of the best farm systems in baseball.  They’re stacked with hitters that are coming up right now.  I’m going to look at Javier Baez and Jorge Soler, two guys who recently came up as the next wave of Cubs talent.  I think both will have a big impact […]

A Reasonable Explanation for Javier Baez’s Homer Drought

In the seventh inning of the Cubs’ August 23rd game home against Baltimore, very potent infield prospect Javier Baez hit the seventh home run of his career in just his 82nd plate appearance. This impressive and immediate exhibition of power wasn’t particularly surprising. Both Baez’s minor-league numbers and the scouting reports suggested that, upon his […]
