    The numbers are scary.

    Almost Glenallen Hill 2000 Yankees scary.

    Something has to be up, no?

      Something may be up; I certainly wouldn’t put it past anyone at this point, especially given his age and previous track record.

      That being said, I’m simply amazed that opposing managers aren’t just feeding Bautista soft stuff away at this point. I mean, whether he’s for real or not, it’s obvious that he can turn on an inside fastball and pull it to LF for a homer. Why not test him as a hitter and give him nothing but changeups and sliders on the outer half? Is it that complicated? If you walk him, so be it. It certainly beats the alternative.

      @ MJ Recanati:
      MJ, I would think that pitchers, catchers, and coaches have thought about your ideas already. More likely than not, that bat feels like a piece of balsa wood and Bautista can just wait and wait. Kind of like some of those guys such as, coughbarrycough….

      I imagine they have since those ideas aren’t terribly unique.

      That being said, it doesn’t seem like they’re being put into practice since Bautista is still getting a very steady diet of fastballs and pitches on the inner half.
