Chicago Cubs: What if players were characters from Star Wars?
By Jake Misener
Javier Baez – Han Solo
This might’ve been the hardest choice to make of all the characters. Because there are multiple Cubs players who could fit the bill here. But, in the end, who could match up with the swagger and confidence of Han Solo? El Mago, of course.
Everyone’s favorite scoundrel has a heart of gold. We all know that. His tragic tale is forever intertwined with the fate of the Jedi themselves – but throughout the original trilogy, his confidence (that borders and sometimes equates to arrogance) is brimming.
The father to Ben Solo (Kylo Ren), wife to General/Princess Leia Organa and brother-in-law to Luke Skywalker, this smuggler – similar to his co-pilot and best friend Chewbacca – is fiercely loyal and protective.
Solo has a certain smoothness to him, though. You can’t deny that. And anyone who doubts that Javy is smooth can just take a look at the above video. That’s all the proof you’ll need on that front.
