Farhan Zaidi: I, Jose Bautista, am begging for you to sign me. Pleeeeeease? Please-Please-Please-Please-Please-Please! I am hell bent on proving to Toronto and the rest of the world that I am still the stud also known as Joey Bats. Hollywood would be the perfect stage for my third act, so let’s make this happen. I will play for cheap, but not that cheap. I still have pride.
Am I gonna blast 40 home runs next year? I’d rather talk about on-base percentage. Since 2006, with two exceptions, I have never dipped below .335 in OBP. The two years I struggled to get on were 2008, when Pittsburgh traded me to Toronto, and last year. It’s pretty well known what I did after a change of scenery in Toronto. So, if you give me the chance to prove I still got it, you will not be sorry.
