Video: Javy Baez taunted the ever-loving crap out of Amir Garrett
Javy Baez delivered a walk-off hit for the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, and he sure took pleasure in taunting Amir Garrett afterwards.
Garrett and Baez have history dating back to a 2019 game when the Cincinnati Reds pitcher taunted Baez after striking out the Chicago Cubs infielder. The next season, Baez stood up to Garrett after the pitcher chirped at Anthony Rizzo.
So when Baez came in to pinch hit against Garrett in the bottom of the ninth with one out and the bases loaded on Monday, the two players were already talking. But Baez got the best of things, delivering a shot to deep center field to win the game 6-5.
Baez was so busy taunting Garrett after the hit that he barely made it to first base.

You can be assured that Garrett and the Reds won’t be happy about that. You also have to wonder if the league will have anything to say to Baez after that display. Nick Castellanos was suspended for less.
