    If there is a equivelent to shooting a "zero" in baseball, this is it.

    I was in my hotel room last night here in Phoenix, and started watching the Cubs/Giants game. A real pitchers duel.

    Until Xavier Baez absolutly unloaded on a pitch with one of the best swings I have ever seen.

    This major league cut should be in every high light reel for the next decade.

    He absolutly unloaded on that pitch.

    I admire excellence. This was it.

    I don't get it. The link says this guy hit a home run which just barely made it over the fence. Doesn't that happen rather frequently?

    Doesn't matter, same score if he had hit it all the way to Phoenix. I think he was posting about technique.

    That's right, Butch. One of the most classic swings I have ever seen.

    Zero's

    He needs four more hits like that to make it equivalent to a zero in Benchrest. Just saying

    Looking back, that one swing resulted in a 1-0 win for the Cubs, leading to a World Series Championship.

    I think it's a shame that one pitcher had to loose that game. Both were great.

    The sportscasters had the cubs winning the world series in April they were right. They deserved one. Ill say two words once a Cardinals fan cant hardly think let alone put in print. Go Cubs.

    Series

    Good to see a team other than the Yankees in the Series. I thought it would be the Blue Jays and Cubs in the series. I was pulling for Cleveland to win another championship to add to their championship win in Basketball.
