Buster Posey takes dig at Javier Baez over watching home run


San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey didn’t think much of the way Chicago’s Javier Baez reacted to his game-winning home run on Friday night.

Baez hit a dramatic home run in the eighth inning of Game One of the NLDS, putting the Cubs ahead 1-0 over the Giants. The homer just barely made it into the basket in left field, though it appeared that it was going much further than that. Posey, who ripped a long double off Aroldis Chapman a half inning later, was unimpressed.

What Posey surely had to know was that, beyond that being a dramatic playoff moment worth celebrating, there was a strong wind blowing in from left. It’s plausible, if likely, that Baez did hit it as hard as he thought – the wind just knocked it down. And despite his semi-apology, Baez was defiant on Twitter after the game.

Just a bit of saltiness seeping into this series. We’re guessing Cub fans like this guy are firmly behind Baez.
