The Cubs remain without a victory so far this spring, but let’s be honest, today is all about the power showcase that was displayed. In the 4th inning Jorge Soler, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant went back-to-back-to-back, how is that even possible?? Three straight dingers is odd enough, but THOSE three guys doing it when fans were clamoring for just that, crazy. Travis Wood found too much of the plate today as he surrendered seven hits in just three innings of work while giving up four runs, two earned. The rest of the Cubs offense started to kick it into high gear today as they pounded out twelve hits, hopefully that is a sign of things to come. Everyone who pitched today struggled, except for Pierce Johnson, he worked two scoreless innings.
I’m not going to lie, yesterday was a big day. For years now, we have talked about Javier Baez, reported on him, traveled to see him, provided live updates of his at bats in Tennessee, Iowa, etc. Yesterday we watched with all of you as Baez did something to help the Major League team, on the field. Sure, he’s just one guy, but he signals the next step in this process, and that is something to be truly excited about.
As soon as MLB gets their crap together I will embed.
Javier Baez is doing everything the Cubs organization wants him too, and then some. On Sunday, Baez went nuts, he hit two home runs, and walked twice, and has been showing increased patience at the plate of late. That coupled with his second half resurgence has many fans ready (more so than usual) for Baez at Wrigley.
The first home run… a laser.
The second home run.. a towering shot.
Last night was just about perfect. With no major league games on the schedule, the baseball World had its full attention on the Minor Leagues, and the Cubs’ kids put on quite the show.
Of course Javier Baez was involved, he hit an absolute monster shot.
Kris Bryant went deep earlier in the same game, pure power.
Jorge Soler, who has assaulted Southern League pitching also went deep last night, I’m pretty sure that’s why the game wasn’t televised, MILB didn’t want kids watching that massacre. Addison Russell also smacked a home run, are you sensing a theme here? Christian Villanueva went deep for the Smokies as well, everybody freak out!
Not to be undone, down in Daytona, Dan Vogelbach also crushed a home run. So if you have lost count, let’s recap!
I’m sure there will be continued exciting nights at the minor league level, and soon enough this kind of excitement will be at the major league level. I can’t wait.
