Jose Bautista, also known as Joey Bats and probably one of your followers on Twitter, had a hot spring training for the Toronto Blue Jays. So it was that he, along with so many others, set out to prove that his meaningless success in spring training was a sign of big things in the season to come.
So far, so good for Bautista. In eight games he already has four home runs, including this shot against the Houston Astros on Tuesday.
The Blue Jays have a lot of questions to answer if they are going to contend in the challenging AL East, but it will go a long way for them if Bautista is crushing mistakes like that over the course of the season.
