Watch: Javy Baez makes incredible no-look tag
Chicago Cubs shortstop Javy Baez often makes the incredible look ordinary, and he gave us another amazing play on Saturday.
With the tying run on first and the Cubs nursing a 6-5 lead over the Padres, San Diego’s Wil Myers tried to steal second and put the tying run in scoring position. The throw to second was off target, but Baez caught it and reached behind him without looking to tag Myers and get a massive second out.

Baez simply does everything at a high level, from tags to slides, making the mundane look like art. He may be the most talented infielder in the entire sport, and things like this explain why.
