Is Jose Bautista the Next Rich Aurilia?

This post refers to beyondtheboxscore.com

Dave Gershman from Beyond the Box Score with an interesting comparison of recently extended Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista and former Giants 3B/utilityman Rich Aurilia:

A while back, Rich Aurilia, the long-time Giant had a spectacular 7+ WAR season which in the eyes of many, was a sign of things to come — the same signal that many got after Bautista’s 2010 campaign. However, Aurilia would avalanche to a 2 WAR season the following year, creating the question as to whether or not something similar will happen to the man known as Joey Bats.

The graph/chart that compares these two is pretty crazy when you think about it. Most people think the Bautista signing was crazy, this is an interesting take.
