Matt Joyce would probably be the closest, ignoring RBI totals, obviously. Adrian Gonzalez is having a terrific year, and he was my pick to win AL MVP at the beginning of the year, but he isn't even in Bautista's league right now (again, unless you go by RBI totals). Nobody is, frankly, not even Joyce. Hes been that insane. The only reason his RBI totals aren't higher is because there are exactly 2 other players in that lineup with an OBP higher than .325.
I still can't get over his numbers though. He really is like early-2000 Bonds. The Jays look like geniuses giving him that extension.
I agree, I watch my Jays every night and The guys who are batting infront of him : Escobar, Patterson and even Davis are not exactly the most consistant hitters. If we could get Aaron Hill back to what he was doing a couple years ago batting second and have Escober get on base a little more often, Bautista would be killing the RBI race. I think 14-15 of his home runs have been solo shots, and got it's frustrating.
I think the future is lookin great for the Jays, with our young pitching staff who is only going to get better, plus some promising prospects and already great players, we should be contenders in 2 years.
