CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs' YouTube channel released a really cool video this week that shows off some of the top heads-up plays made by the Cubs in recent years. The compilation is heavy on ingenious baserunning decisions and high-IQ defensive plays.

Naturally, Cubs shortstop Javier Baez is featured quite prominently in the video, with his trademark evasive sliding technique on display. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo also stars in the highlight reel, with several instances of him tricking opposing players being included in the montage.
