Jose Bautista? Seriously?

Blue Jays batter Jose Bautista hits a solo home run during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

The New York Yankees headed into Toronto with a five game win streak and promptly lost thanks to two home runs by Jose Bautista.

Jose Bautista?

Yep that Jose Bautista.

The guy without a regular position who leads baseball now with 18 home runs. The same Jose Bautista who had never hit more then 16 in any season or the one who set a career high in OPS last season at .757. The same Jose Bautista who appeared at the big leave level with four different teams in his first  season back in 2004.

Needless to say Baustista is on his way to setting career highs in every offensive category.

In 56 games for the Blue Jays this season Bautista is hitting .259/.380/.627 with 18 homers and 45 RBI.
