Obviously, Bautista’s anger isn’t amplified by a fantastical space organism molded onto a super-suit like in the comic books, but the connection between Toronto and the web-slinger is too strong to pass up.
While Bautista wasn’t plunked by a radioactive baseball that gave him his superpowers, Toronto is the closest thing to a spider bite he’ll get. His career high for home runs prior to his move to The 6 was 16, and he had yet to evolve into the power threat he is today.
It was what I looked forward to every day (in high school), Ramczyk told co-host Geoff Schwartz and me on SiriusXM NFL Radio. It was kind of intriguing. I thought it would be cool to do that as a full-time job. That was kind of how it got started.
Because he temporarily snuffed his gridiron torch, some NFL teams might call into question just how committed he is to playing the game. But the sacrifices Ramczyk made to resume his football pursuits should dispel those potential knocks.
