The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Javier Baez is incredibly likable

He's got all the weirdness and childishness (in a good way) of Starlin Castro, so he fills that gap this team needs

I'm convinced that there is no player in the major leagues that is better at applying a tag than Javier Baez.

He's an athletic freak. With those quick hands, he has the makings of a terrific boxer. He has also had some very fast baserunning times according to a couple tweets I've seen over the last week or so.

I think it would be prudent for me to change what I said last night:

There's obviously a lot of really good players on this team, but Baez might be the most fun to watch.

Now it's time for Javy to do what he was born to do. If Soler isn't going to be giving dong lessons 2x a week as I thought he would, then I'd like to see Baez blow up and take this offense to the omega level.

Yes I remember, I just also remember the multiple times he's injured himself or otherwise made himself look silly while sliding.

I think Dustin Diamond is a little more adept than Soler at swinging lumber.

David Ross is Mr. Belding. Joe Maddon is Max. John Lackey still hasn't transferred over from Valley yet.

Lackey is Tori, because his presence will always be confusing and uncomfortable.
