Best Jose Bautista Blue Jays Moments (And Nasty Ones Too)

Best Jose Bautista Blue Jays Moments (And Nasty Ones Too)

If you want to rank the best Blue Jays moments maybe of all time, I still clearly remember the absolute joy when Jose Bautista hit a three-run home run in Game 5 of the 2015 American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers, simply known as the ‘bat flip’.

Everyone knows how the story goes. I was jumping up and down almost in tears in front of my TV after just previously watching how the Jays fell behind in the game and likely about to get eliminated from the playoffs.

Jays fans went bonkers after the dead ball call and that runner was allowed to score, it was possible that we were about to see the Rogers Centre get burned down.

The Bautista home run was epic — From devastation to delusional delight, that game was something special for all.

Affectionately known simply as Joey Bats, Jose Bautista provided fans one of the best memories that nobody will forget.

Remind me. How did the Blue Jays get Jose Bautista?

Scott Rolen was injured and the Blue Jays needed a 3rd baseman, so the Jays got Bautista from the Pittsburgh Pirates for a player to be named later. Not a bad trade…

Unlike most of the infamous Ross Atkins garbage bin pick-ups over the last couple of years, this one worked out very well for the Jays.

Jose was also a pretty fiery guy, often arguing calls with umps and getting pretty unruly on many occasions. None more famous than his scrap with Rougned Odor.
