Jose Bautista Will Hit 40 Bombs

Jose Bautista is healthy and in midseason form ready to prove to the baseball world once again why he is one of the premier sluggers in the game. Joey Bats will re-establish himself as one of the most feared power hitters in the game.

The right fielder has dominated Grapefruit League action as well as leading the Dominican Republic offensive charge at the World Baseball Classic. The 36-year old appears rejuvenated and ready to carry the Blue Jays on his back right to the postseason once again.

I am not going to go as far to say the Bautista will win the AL MVP honors, but I will put my money where my mouth is and throw out 40 round trippers in 2017. That is 40 big flies catapulting the Blue Jays offence like it is 2010 all over again.

A .280/40 HR/115 RBI/ 100 BB season is not out of the question for the bat-flipping, adopted Canadian son. The slugger is going to make 29 major league teams regret not giving him a legitimate free agent sniff this offseason. The Bautista/Donaldson/Morales trio will be one of the most explosive lumber-touting trios in 2017.

You don’t wake the sleeping giant, and the Dave Dombrowski’s of the baseball world have awakened the giant north of the border. Be prepared for giant power numbers.
