NEW YORK -- When Javier Báez walked into Citi Field on Saturday for the first time as a Met, he received a savior’s welcome. A team photographer chronicled Báez’s entrance into the home clubhouse.

When Báez caught a routine popup in the second inning, fans showered him with an ovation. When Báez came to bat for the first time, they stood and cheered and chanted his name.

Báez helps Mets beat Reds in dramatic comeback

The Mets’ game against the Reds last night wasn’t a must-win situation, but given the events of the 24 hours that preceded it, a win was strongly preferable. On Friday, the Mets made one trade before the deadline, bringing in Javier Báez and Trevor Williams from the Cubs. But the team could have used more help, especially in the rotation or bullpen, and it seemed that way even before it was announced that Jacob deGrom was being shut down for two weeks because things had gotten slightly worse with the inflammation in his right elbow. And to top things off, the Reds beat the Mets with ease on Friday night.

Some proper baseball beef

It’s been a bit since we’ve had some proper baseball beef. As any wrestling fan will tell you, the best storylines that pay off biggest are the ones that cover a long time, sometimes years. Clearly that’s the lesson that Javy Baez and Amir Garrett have learned. Last night’s chapter:

Yankees potential trade target: Javier Báez

Ask anybody on the streets of New York what the Yankees need, and you’ll hear a few different answers. A new manager in the clubhouse, perhaps, or a new direction in the front office that is — depending on the individual — either completely bereft of analytics or embraces new directions within the field. Two additions universally rank near the top of that wish list: first, a shortstop, preferably one with a strong glove that will push Gleyber Torres back to second base; second, speed and aggressiveness on the basepaths; and third, a fresh new attitude to shake up a clubhouse that is laid back to a fault.
