TORONTO BLUE JAYS SOCIAL MEDIA BUZZ: All Hail King James and Dad

JAYS FROM THE COUCH BRINGS YOU THE BEST IN TORONTO BLUE JAYS SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVITY OVER THE PAST WEEK. THIS EDITION FEATURES BASKETBALL AND DADS

 

 

 

We scoured social media to bring you the best the internet has to offer with this collection of Blue Jays Social Media Buzz.

 

The guys had a “light” week with both Monday and Thursday off (even though they had to travel to Chicago), which is a good thing given that they have entered a 17-game straight stretch.

 

If You’re a Raptors Fan, Scroll Down…

Because the Jays definitely have some Cavs fans on the team, who were pumped to celebrate the team’s NBA Finals Championship.

Let’s go @kingjames voy al Mio vamo Aya

Style Upgrades

Roberto Osuna got a fresh new ‘do recently from JD at Throne Barbershop…

 

And it looks like he had a little company…

 

Drew Storen wants to help everyone look stylish while reppin’ his favorite t-shirt shop, Homage, with this retweet.

 

The raining MVP (see what I did there?) just got his hands on some sweet new snapbacks.

 

Meanwhile, in Tampa, Jose Bautista modeled the latest in designer footwear for the turf-toe set…

Doing Good

Marcus Stroman recently received a letter from a child named Andrew bringing to his attention Brain Injury Awareness Month. He had this sweet reply…

Brain Injury Awareness Month. Thank you for the letter Andrew. You have our support! @bluejays

Jays Care introduced baseball to a group of Syrian refugees and hosted them at Rogers Centre recently.

 

Father’s Day Tributes

There’s just something about dads and baseball that just tugs at the heartstrings. So naturally, you’ll need a few tissues handy when checking out what the Blue Jays had to say about their dads for Father’s Day on June 19.

(Translation: Happy Day, father ! I Love You thanks for always being the best; and thanks for having brought to major league !!)

So thankful for my pops-Happy Father’s Day!

In the Spotlight

In-keeping with the father’s Day theme, Roberto Osuna tweeted this article about him and his father by Emmanuel Campa, sports reporter for Mexican newspaper Excelsior.

 

And SportsNet did a nice perspective piece about Tulo’s return:

 

And even though this is a repost of an article from April, take a few moments and read this profile of Jays breakout star Michael Saunders, it’s worth the time I promise.
