The boricua Javier Baez is being defended by the owner of the New York Mets himself, Steven Cohen, who a few days ago criticized his hitters for not being “consistent professionals.”
Some days ago Steven Cohen, he threw everything at his batters and veteran Jeff Passan responded in a unique way to the world of MLB.
It is not a secret that after the all-star game things do not go well for the New York Mets, who not only lost the first place in their division, but are also in third place behind the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves.
Part of that is down to the hitters not getting the job done while the pitchers do.
Steven Cohen said he didn’t understand how professional hitters can be so inconsistent:
“It’s hard to understand how professional hitters can be so unproductive. The best teams have a more disciplined approach. The slugging and OPS numbers don’t lie ”
However, the Mets’ bats have started to heat up including Javier Baez and Jonathan Villar. That has sparked a reaction from Cohen, who posted on his Twitter account asking where the analysts are who criticize Baez when he’s wrong with the bat.
“Where are the Twitter“ experts ”now complaining about Báez? They must be out for the weekend. “
In his last 7 games, Baez is hitting 400. with 2 homers, 3 RBIs and a stolen base, being the spark plug for his team even defensively.

Was that what Cohen had to do?
Steven Cohen He should be proud of where his team is, as they have had injury problems with Jacob Degrom, Noah Syndergaard, Francisco Lindor, Javier Báez, Michael Conforto and Dominic Smith. At this point in the game none of those mentioned are playing 100% healthy.
That is why instead of criticizing them publicly, he should give them encouragement saying that he trusts his team and that because they are “professionals” they can make things work in a better way in MLB.
