WATCH: Pirates announcer trashes Javy Baez

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs second baseman Javy Baez hit a massive two-run homer and had one of the top defensive gems of the year against the Blue Jays on Friday.

However, not everyone is a fan of his "flashiness" including Pittsburgh Pirates announcer Steve Blass.

"Anybody except Javy Baez. He is a difficult player for me to root for," Blass said.

"That's a nice way to put it -- his flashiness. That's part of it."

Baez is hitting .272 with 20 homers, 58 RBI, and .310 on-base percentage this season. In his last 16 games, he is batting .311 with seven homers, 13 runs, and 18 RBI.
