Jose Bautista: Steam train of awesome

Hola amigos. How’s tricks? I know it’s been a long time since I rapped at ya, but I’ve pretty been bummed lately.

Brandon Morrow. Kyle Drabek. Drew Hutchison.

Ricky Romero’s not his usual self. Henderson Alvarez is falling hard and fast.

And now there’s a Shawn Hill to worry about. And maybe a Jeremy Guthrie?


Not a whole lot to be excited about as far as starting pitching goes.

But not all is bleak for Blue Jays fans. There is one bright spot on the team; one steam train of awesome that’s rolling over opponents left and right even if he can’t carry the team to victory by himself.

Jose Bautista is amazing.

Sure, there are other players to be excited about on the team. Plenty of them, actually. But if you’re like me and you’re feeling a little down about the team on the whole, there’s nothing quite like a solid Bautista bomb to cheer you up. For example, watch this ding dong he blasted last night.

Take that, baseball, indeed.

The great thing about Jose is that when he connects with one, and I mean really connects, everybody watching knows as soon as ball hits bat. As soon as Bautista connects, the only question is “how far past the outfield wall is this one going to land?” and that is a great question. It’s a question I don’t think I’ll ever tire of asking.

Edited to remove swears. We’re not DJF (if you’re confused, you can tell by the lack of profanity, the lack of frequency and the lack of quality).

    My gracious Clements, random dropping of an “F-bomb” there.. I thought I had accidentally migrated over to DJF or Getting Blanked. And here I thought we were a family-friendly operation? Clements is over here being more obscene than Jonathan Quick.

    Ah, the temptation to swear in the comments….I shall refrain.

    • It’s called he woerkd his tail off! He studied film, and really woerkd on his timing/loading mechanics. He woerkd on seeing the ball earlier by starting his load early and seeing the ball longer! The lightbulb came on for him and rite now he is reaping the benefits.
