Man. Getting kinda antsy for some trading to happen as I watch this team of dead men walking (or striking out or whatever). I know. Patience, right? Yeah, we all have a little practice at that. Oh well, I get a little ranty, I make a cartoon. Can't wait to make some happy ones in the future.

Let’s start with the strikeouts. Baez has fanned 43 times in his first 99 plate appearances, a 43.4 percent clip. No other player with as many PAs in 2014 has topped 40 percent (although, as most Cubs fans could tell you, Mike Olt has come close). According to data from Baseball Prospectus, if Baez strikes out in his next trip to the plate, he’ll set a record for the most K’s in the first 100 plate appearances of a nonpitcher’s career since at least 1960.
