When he's on he's awesome. When he's off he's awful.

It is what it is. He's going to rake and then he's going to reek.

Javy doesn't seem to have the right personality to DH. I'd rather they just give him a few days rest.

If you ever say anything negative about Javy's personality again, I'll post a really mean gif!

it always burns my soul when Javy gets in one of these funks, because he'll go like 2 for 45 and strike out 27 times, but he always gets out of it

So why does he not say to himself at the plate, slider 3 feet off and in the dirt...

He really does seemingly guess more than any other hitter I can think of.

He makes so many plays look easy at SS.

Now we just need to get rid of the guy who keeps losing his damn bat whenever he swings.

I have no stats to back me up but, I feel Javy does a decent job at times getting to 3 ball counts. More specifically 3-2 counts, but usually can’t take that 4 ball very often.

Baez deserves an extension just for all of the extensions he routinely gives the rest of us.

He’s a natural lefty, why not?






Because he has no experience doing it, that’s why

Name all the players who started doing new things several years into their major league career? A handful of pitchers work on a new pitch, but I can’t name any player who has converted to a switch hitter at age 27.
