Breaking News: Jose Bautista Hits #50

Only minutes ago, Blue Jays 3rd baseman/right fielder/ monster hit his 50th home run of the year against Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners.

This is the very first time that any Blue Jays hitter has pounded 50 home runs in a season and I love it!

Now, I’m at work right now.  So I didn’t see him hit the bomb live, but my Twitter feed blew up with praise for the slugger and I even changed my profile photo as a tribute for the rest of the day.

There is already a clip floating around the interweb showing the full first inning at-bat this afternoon. And besides the home run swing, I think my favourite part is the dude yelling “Number 50 Baby!”

My only disappointment is that my math was off when I put together my Jose Bautista and the Chase for 50! piece before the Boston series.

But I’m not sad enough to complain!

    I think in this day and age there’s always going to be a lot of skepticism surrounding anyone that has not been a proven hitter and that is going to be justified. And even if Bautista isn`t on steroids how are we going to know if he can duplicate his performance in the seasons to come considering he hasn’t proven much throughout the first half of his career. 50 is a great milestone and it might be a while before we see a transformation from one season to the next as large as Bautista’s but I guess for now we’ll just try and soak it in. Also, you think you could check out my post from a few days ago on this topic cuz I really want to know what you think. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/09/18/what-to-do-with-jose-bautista/
