Well, one of the best offensive 2nd basemen as well. I recall one year he lead the National League in home runs.Ryne Sandberg was probably the best defensive 2B in Cubs history....the reason being that he knew his limitations and only went after what he could handle. No such limitations for Baez. He gets to balls Sandberg wouldn't dream of getting to...the trade off is that Baez will make more errors. Eventually, he'll learn when to eat the ball rather than complicate things further by hastily throwing it away. What I liked last night was the fact that he didn't let his errors scare him away from making that great play to close out the game. He's still a work in progress but anyone who watches baseball has to love what they're seeing from this kid.
He was runner up for MVP last year, dicklicker.He is a guy that makes hard plays look easy and easy plays look hard. Sunday he blames a sign for not catching that ball but on replays it looked like he wasnt paying attention. Tonight he flubs that dribbler then throws wildly to home. A number of times last year he had the same pattern.
I think Maddon isnt convinced of his consistency either which is maybe why he doesnt have a regular position. Tell me where I'm wrong
