No, not that Jose Bautista, O’s fans. This Jose Bautista, the good one:
If I’d known this once I’d forgotten it, but baseball’s best hitter, Joey Bats, broke into the bigs with Baltimore in 2004. He got 11 at-bats before being waived and picked up by Tampa Bay.
Four teams and six years later, he led Major League Baseball in home runs. Bautista already has another 18 this season, or three times that of Orioles leader Luke Scott.
