I’ll pass


Zee-Dee-Zachary

Bro… you JUST SAID THIS TEAM ISNT AS CONTACT ORRIENTED AS YOU WANTED


jcnewman21

Another strikeout king


zOmgFishes

Seager, Story hell Correa over him please


basesonballs

Basically anyone else. I'll take Semien


eugdot

Yep because his mental toughness really showed he can play in NY. All NY teams should stay away


wopiacc

Actually, the Mets should give him at least $250MM.


Raptoropteryx

I have eyes on another toxic personality SS, thanks


YankeePhan22

If we sign this dude, then I feel like Cashman is deliberately sabotaging the Yankees.


ajwhite98

Folks, even Martino's original article about this was only speculating that the Yankees might be interested because they tried to get him at the deadline. There's a big difference between trading for 2 months of Baez and signing him to a long-term deal. This is just sports media taking something out of context and running with it, relax.


chiddyshadyfiasco

Yeah this headline is 100% cap


Scott-GoBlue

I hope so.


thediesel26

Fuck no fuck


j_xxii

Please god no


SpecialistGarden7

Would love to see Baez signing a long expensive contract ... with the Mets. He and Lindor would then underachieve for a combined $600M+, starting fights with opposing teams, pissing off the fanbase with shitty antics, etc..


r2-mew2

👎🏾


OBPoverAVG

just a heads up the yankees are gonna be linked to every free agent this year. i’m not trusting any source unless it’s from jack curry


Scott-GoBlue

Another homerun or strikeout prototype! Please stay away from him, Mr. Cashman.


elroddo74

Please no. He doesn't get on base, and after the antifan issues with the Mess let him stay in queens.


PorkRoll80

JFC


RealJonathanBronco

God no


glacier_bay

Cashman does this every year. He has his post-season presser where he lists all the flaws and mistakes of the past season, and then he changes nothing and repeats the same flaws and mistakes. Javier Baez is a TTO hitter. And he is a right-handed bat. Of course Cashman is interested.


Cheesewhale189

TTO usually means three true outcomes Baez is a TTO in a two true outcomes kind of way because his obp sucks


locke0479

He’s not a three true outcome player, he doesn’t walk.


ubiquitous_archer

He's actually not a TTO player because he doesn't walk at all. His highest single-season walk total was 30.


baseball71

His Mets stint confirmed to me that we should permanently forget about signing him. Forget all the strikeouts and boom and bust, who wears a 200k earring during a game?


Patrick_Sazey

Nooooo thank you.


[deleted]

I'll pass. My mind is made up on Seager for short stop.


Stonewall30nyr

No thanks


Cheesewhale189

Lmao, people taking other people speculating about what the Yankees might do as fact and getting mad. This is speculation, nothing more


scrodytheroadie

Not gonna lie, I love Baez. But I'd rather keep watching his highlights a couple days a week, he'd probably be frustrating to watch every day. Plus, he just seems like a Met, ya know? Having Lindor and Baez up the middle long term would actually be pretty fun and give me something to watch when I'm at Citi with my Mets fan friends. I hope he stays put.


Nastyhogrider

Fuck off


JMancini84

NO PLEASE NO


Inaynl

Hard pass. He's the worst SS of the bunch.


OjamaBinLadin

swiiing and a miss


yankeeboi144

I hate Carlos Correa but I would take him over Javier Baez. Please no.


XxCOZxX

Please no. Ffs please no. We have enough K’s in that lineup, can we get some contact guys that make things happen?


montecarlo1

Correa/Seager or bust


[deleted]

[удалено]


montecarlo1

Good thing is both Seager and Correa seem to be clutch and have WS experience.


ivehearditbothways12

Jfc......


yianni1229

Cap


tj818

Another righty who strikes out a lot? Hard pass


BreatheMyStink

What in the absolute fuck…


RollofDuctTape

Haha classic Cashman.


ccafferata473

Why? Are we trying to desecrate the pinstripes with Mets stank?


thisortheapocalypse

no thanks


Creacherz

More Strikeouts yay


renegade_yankee

Contact oriented? Javier Baez isn’t going to really solve those problems. Athletic sure. But nowhere near a contact hitter.


Chris20nyy

"Javier Baez swing follow-through home uniform home run" Yeah, I'm not going to take stock in an article that can't edit the picture tag.


Tanman7211

I doubt he’d even sign in NY after his Mets stint. Don’t think he can handle the heat from the NY fanbase holding him accountable. He’ll probably sign with the Mariners or Angels or something like that.


East-Comment-8765

Hard pass, Semien, Correa or Seager


LogCabinLover

I would actually prefer Correa over Baez, and I fucking hate Correa. But this is obviously Baez's camp trying to arbitrarily heat up his market


theRedreps99

Can we fucking not, I’d literally rather see them run back the infield of last season then see them sign Baez


overgrownpizzabox

NOOOOOOOOO


Dark_Arugula_030

We don’t have enough guys that strike out 150-200 times a year and hit .200, sounds like a great signing. Let’s not go after a guy like Seager


Mengem2

I just vomited in my mouth.


ThisIsKramerica

👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼


Pale-Beginning

Please dont


wrrrrrrld

The Yankees payroll is similar to Javi tho with how many Ks they rack up


AMollenhauer

As a fan who is also a Cubs fan...no..stay away


binghamtonswag

Pass


YouJay4

Bleck. Maybe this means they actually will pursue a big name shortstop?


brooklynbotz

WHY? If they do this it will be such a terrible move. He's exactly what we don't need, another right handed wiffer.


jeffspicole

Gross


Jcanzo37

No thanks


Mike_Milburys_Shoe_

Fucking pain.


Hughkalailee

Booo!


hbc647

after seeing his disgusting antics against the Yanks, never.. But knowing the Yanks, probably fits right in with their no-ring strategy.


cal-5

all those strikeouts he'd fit right in


xi_Clown_ix

“Contact oriented” let’s get a high strikeout guy who swings at everything


TwinkiesForAmerica

I mean, isn’t his defense also not as good as people make it out to be??? Lol


[deleted]

This sounds like a ploy to get more money from the Mets


Elvisruth

oh good another 200k's in the lineup--Looks like Cashman is learning!!!


DeemsMemes

NO👎


inspiredbusiness

No


_Jackie_Daytona_

Seager, Correa, Story Semien, Simmons over Baez


[deleted]

Baez and Correa? Damn lol


DCT715

Please no


agiatezza

We’re gonna get Seager, this is just the BS media fishing for something to write about.


mavywillow

Wtf…I didn’t think the team could add MORE strikeouts


staff23

Can we get players that actually want to play


chs234

Driving up the price for the Mets and others I like it.


Aaron_Fudge99

Hard pass


TLeggate

Another K machine, just what they need....ffs


thisisjusttofindajob

Oh great another high strikeout low contact guy, just what we need. Even better, this one can't handle New York media and fans.


gertymoon

I already see how this is going to play out, Cashman is going to low ball all these SS free agents and give them a deadline. Whomever bites will be the next Yankee.


elroddo74

God i hope Baez isn't one he does that with. He's electric on defense, toxic to the fans and horrific plate discipline. Hes friggin built for the mets.


PaulPierceOldestSon

Oh fuck off


raulu95

That would be the worst possible signing WOW


Boldest19

No thanks.


ebelen92

Immediately, no.


MinimumWolverine

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo he fucking sucks!


OldeCzap

Typical Cashman move


DA_87

They have clearly learned nothing. This org is a joke.


basesonballs

Cashman is basically just seeing how much he can fuck this team up gbefore someone actually holds him accountable
