It started when he was in like AA and he was talking about how great his team's lineup was, and he knew himself and two other top-100 prospects. He went down the list saying "some guy" for everyone else.

This was the thread where we were excited that Arismendy Alcantara was going to get a couple of days up for Darwin Barney's paternity leave but we were worried Renteria wouldn't play him. And IMB was right, that kind of stuff seems *hilarious* and not annoying in retrospect.

I really, really wanted Mendy to be a thing. But then Javy showed me what middle infield defense is supposed to look like.

I know the story but it turned into a meme where if for example players went into a slump Javy would forget their name and stuff. Now I’m convinced that the Beatles didnt do enough in their career for Javy to know who they are. I’m pretty sure Javy out of ignorance called his wife ‘honey’ or ‘you’ until she produced his child.

Honestly I think it has. Next time you're at Wrigley listen to the crowd when they announce the lineups before the game.

My 11yo son's a huge Baez fanatic, to the point of getting a blonde mohawk and temporary MLB logo tattoos for the back of his neck during youth baseball season.

Of course, he was a huge Castro fan before that, so I don't know if he's the norm.

Not a big fan of those old baseball cliches (grit/toughness), but Baez was not feeling well last night so I understand what Schwarber means. I think Baez plays with a lot of nicks and bruises all the time and wonder how he does this stuff without missing significant time.

With his 1 RBI today, Baez enters the All-Star break leading the NL (2nd in the MLB).

this was more of a hot take a week ago, but i think he's the rightful 1st half MVP

and it's somewhat crazy to consider especially in today's game when he has just single-digit unintentional BBs

Hmm, this is going to require a lot of detective work to figure out. It's probably not a Hispanic player or a young player (probably). It's probably some old vet on some NL team. I doubt an AL player would say this about Javy.

Not sure. I'll come up with a list of probable candidates...

The Cubs really should sell a Javy Baez temporary tattoo pack at Wrigley. MLB logo and World Series champions logo.

Also, I now really want to put a temporary MLB tattoo on my 3 year old for his t-ball game next week.

I don't even think it's him but I'm gonna pretend it's Cervelli because confirmation bias is fun sometimes
