Speaking of Grilli, he had his folks with him during the visit to Yankee Stadium. You might recall the stories of Grilli’s dad turning young Jason into a Blue Jays fan at an early age.

Trolling David Price (and the Red Sox)

 

When David Price joined the Jays last August, he made a BIG DEAL about how much he loved the popcorn at the Skydome. So, the Jays being a nice, supportive team to players past and present, left him a little gift when he arrived for the series…


Local businesses had a little fun throwing some shade at the Red Sox as well…

 

And for Those Who Doubt…

This team isn’t letting the negative in.

Marcus Stroman was not about to let the negative vibes ruin that winning smile of his as he posted some inspiration:

Smile through adversity. #HDMH

Even baseball players are excited when NFL Football is back.
