    Blue Jays big bopper should have been a Red

    He started training with the Arizona Diamondbacks. They tried to sign him for $42,000. He turned that down, too. Soon thereafter, the Cincinnati Reds recognized the same burgeoning bat speed and arm strength and offered Bautista a $300,000 bonus. He agreed to sign. Then Marge Schott sold the Reds to Carl Lindner, and the franchise reneged on its offer.

    Took him 10 years or whatever to actually develop that bat speed and be anything better than a utility man. He would have already been waived or traded way before now.
