Can’t unsee nude #Cubs SS Javy Baez in ESPN’s Body Gallery
September 4, 2019

Seeing Cubs shortstop Javy Baez naked is not something I ever wanted.  ESPN made him hard to miss in its latest Body Gallery. It’s as though ESPN wants to penalize guys for looking at a few athletic women who are naked.  A few years ago, they put an unclothed 75-year old pro golfer Gary Player […]
