Cubs' Baez fires back at Hurdle's criticism: 'They can save it'

Cubs' Baez fires back at Hurdle's criticism: 'They can save it'

Hurdle was correct. Players on the Cubs reportedly did speak to Baez about his moment during the seventh inning.

Hurdle and the Pirates apparently took exception to Baez, who hit his fourth homer in the series his next at-bat. Hurdle said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "He's full of energy and he loves the game of baseball and he just kind of rubs off on everyone with the way that he goes about it".

Hurdle ended his comments by saying that someone on the Cubs likely spoke to Baez about what he did.

"To be honest, I have a lot of things I could say right now", he continued. Teammate Pedro Strop took him aside after the game and told him how bad it was, and Baez said he learned "how ugly I looked on that [play]" and was disappointed in himself for "the way I looked for the kids and for everybody that follows me". "But I don't control what's out there, what people talk about me". That's not a good look. "I did not see it coming at all", said Maddon. Whenever you want to be hyper-critical of somebody, just understand: "You're pretty much revealing yourself, and what your beliefs are, more than you're being critical or evaluating somebody, because you have not spent a second in that person's skin". "Very proud of him, actually". The Pittsburgh manager also was critical of Willson Contreras the catcher for the Cubs, but the issue with Baez has history with Pittsburgh. Last year was a player talking about my gamestyle and now this year, it's a manager.


On Thursday, Hurdle called out Baez for flipping his bat high in frustration over a popup he hit between his two home runs in the Cubs' blowout victory Wednesday. Baez was well aware of what Blass said and then learned of Hurdle's comments in the shower after Thursday's game.

Baez said that any apologies that he makes are to his teammates and his manager, not to another team. But to call either disrespectful or to insinuate selfishness is to not watch them play or to not know how they fit in a tightly knit clubhouse. "We won [13-5 on Wednesday] and I think it got to them".

"We lost the series, but we're still the same".

Baez didn't seem to like the insinuation. I'm happy. There's music in the clubhouse. "People that talk about me can save it".
