I can't help but think the original skepticism about Bautista is still beneath the surface for many, despite the fact that he has now hit like the best hitter in baseball for nearly 2.5 seasons. Doubt the guy at your own risk, I guess. It's burnt a lot of fantasy owners (including me).
Agreed. I'd have no reservations about grabbing him in the top half of round 1 next season.
I'm not sure I'd expect a .300 average again (which came as a result of hitting like Bonds for 2 months), but the batting eye and power should be there. The guy's one of the best hitters in the game, I thought he had proven that by now.
