Cubs pay tribute to Báez with touching video

Cubs

Break out the tissues, Cubs fans. 

The Cubs traded Javy Báez to the Mets Friday, dealing the fan favorite and one of the most electric players in baseball.

From his contortionist acts on the bases to his highlight-reel plays defensively to his powerful bat, the man known as El Mago endeared himself to Cubs fans in his eight seasons on the North Side.

After the trade, the Cubs honored Báez with a touching video tribute on Twitter, looking back on his countless memorable moments with the team.

Báez started two All-Star Games, won a Gold Glove, finished second in NL MVP voting and earned NLCS MVP honors during his time in the blue pinstripes — not to mention he helped the Cubs win the World Series in 2016.

He now reunites with good friend Francisco Lindor in the Mets' pursuit of a championship over the next few months.
