Jose Bautista BAS-towed with AL Player of the Week honours

I think we just might have converted some people to join the Bautista Appreciation Society.

According to super sleuth reporter Jordan Bastian, none other than the Blue Jays own Jose Bautista has been named the American League Player of the Week.

It was an incredible past week for Bautista, in which he clubbed four home runs, drove in eight runs, and drew five walks en route to an OPS of 1.676.


One could very easily write these numbers off as an anomaly, because who would’ve ever guessed that Jose Bautista would ever be named the Player of the Week?

In the meantime … fellow BAS members, let’s enjoy this day and celebrate it as a national holiday for all those who appreciate the often under-appreciated Blue Jays utility man.

And thanks to my good friend eyebleaf, we have the official slogan for the Bautista Appreciation Society: “Don’t hate, appreciate“.

    Nothing can surprise me anymore with regards to the Jays this year, but I'm ok with it if they keep trying to. It's been a lot more fun so far this year than anticipated, and any attention the Jays receive from the rest of the league is just a bonus…

    Mattt, the best thing to do is ride the wave. I am a huge optimist, but I don't think this pace is sustainable (when it comes to Bautista and even the Jays in general). But who knows, anything can happen!

    SP, Bautista appreciates that, 100 percent. RIP 2Pac.
