Jays From the Couch launches a new weekly feature, Social Media Buzz, where we look at how the Blue Jays are interacting with the world at large!
As social media continues to expand across multiple platforms, it’s difficult to catch everything that your favorite Blue Jays are saying and doing. No worries though, because Jays From the Couch has you covered.
Hopefully people enjoyed the Easter weekend. Ryan Tepera certainly did.

However, the winner for best family moment of the week is David Aardsma, who crossed sports and species with his son:

The most important news of the week? Let’s have Buffalo Bison catcher Tony Sanchez sum it up:

What better way to celebrate with a Blue Jays dinner out? Chris Colabello thinks otherwise following this Jose Bautista dare.
“When you’re struggling to make a decision…” We just dared @cc20rake 15K to eat the giant plate of lobster mac n’ cheese weighing in at a crisp 8 lbs… #WhatWouldYouDo #LetTheSeasonBegin #ILoveMyTeam ??????? Updates: 8:34 he is still struggling with it 8:45 im losing hope over here 8:53 not looking good… 8:56 @kpillar11 shows up and is upset that #CoachBelo is taking so long to decide 8:59 officially has waved the white flag, not even an attempt…disappointing…
While Colabello rejects a challenge I would take in a heartbeat, some Blue Jays choose other productive things to do with their time.
Binge @ScandalABC watching.. Great way to spend an off day.. Hurry up Thursday need a new episode!!

But of course when you can do stuff like this, you can afford to spend your off-days on the couch.
Hopes are high for the 2016 Blue Jays, in part because of new ace Marcus Stroman. And he’s got a very famous fan:

To say Stroman was pleased is a understatement:
Wow. Pedro really said that? I’m in awe right now. For real. ? @45PedroMartinez

Just another reminder of what can happen this season for the Blue Jays. As the patron saint of the Buzz says:
Good can turn to better.
