2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)It appears that Jose Bautista is not a fluke, well, for this year at least. Any predictions for how much of the power is real and how much he'll regress next year? 25 HR?
(Bob from Seattle)
This kind of thing has happened before -- I always think of Felix Mantilla in 1964 ("I just aim at that wall there? Really? That's legal? Okay!" Bautista's change is supposed to be the result of an adjustment to his approach at the plate, and while you'd think it would be transient, I sort of buy the idea that the guy had untapped talent, that he was defeating his tools with a bad approach. In New York, we've seen Nick Swisher change his stance this year and pick up 50 points on his batting average, another example of the benefits even a small positive change can make.
