This one? It's fun to extrapolate ridiculously good numbers even if it isn't realistic that a player will keep it up. I wouldn't take it so seriously, it's not exactly an argument by Cameron.

I don't take them serious which is why I originally said I laughed at the idea. Don't take that Fangraphs article as the only piece of commentary. There are dozens littered about by people who felt 6 weeks was enough time to start seeing where the 2011 performance would rank.

But my comment really had nothing to do with Bautista other than a humorous look at how absolutely insane .609 is.
