Jose Bautista- Ya just can’t predict baseball

Although his name appears in the title, I am not writing about Jose Bautista. I just simply wanted to comment on a fascinating aspect of baseball seasons. Each season there is always a unique, unexpected storyline that seemingly comes out of nowhere. That, is one of the many reasons why baseball is awesome.

This year nobody expected Jose Bautista to hit fifty home runs. Last season Aaron Hill hit thirty-six home runs as a second baseman, after hitting two in 2008. In 2008 Josh Hamilton burst onto the scene after a solid partial season in 2007. Before that year began, did anyone think Yankee Stadium would be chanting his name at the Home Run Derby? In that same season the lowly Rays won 98 games in the regular season and advanced to the World Series. Even though SABR-heads thought the Rays would be good, I don’t think anyone expected them to be that good.

The point is- ya can’t predict baseball. And that’s why baseball is awesome.
