Javier Baez to the Chicago Tribune:
“I’m not afraid to make mistakes. And when I make then, there’s no excuse. I didn’t see the ball at all until it passed the mound. I realize it was the sign because (Diaz) was getting out of the box, and I still couldn’t see the ball. It was only for us playing defense. No excuses. But I couldn’t see the ball.”
What threw off Baez was the ad panel, which we also learned that there are two of them behind home plate in St Louis. If this only happens this one time, then it’s all good.
