TORONTO BLUE JAYS SOCIAL MEDIA BUZZ: All the Effing Fun You Can Handle

 

The Toronto Blue Jays are all about Food, Fashion, Family and Fun (while beating the Angels in the California sun) this week!

 

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

 

 

A Moment of Reflection

Baseball commemorated the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in a variety of ways  – from jet flyovers, moments of silence and large displays on the field. Danny Barnes was a little more low-key than that.

 

Team Photos

Twice a year like clockwork MLB has picture day. No word if the members of the Jays were each handed one of those little black combs before this group photo.

 

Aside from that baseball field in the middle, Rogers Centre also boasts a pretty fantastic scoreboard. A few lucky folks (winners from a past JaysCare auction) got to play video games with Russell Martin on it recently (shameless MLB The Show 2014 product placement aside – LOL).

#PonleAcento

That means put and accent on it. Major League Baseball is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in September with several initiatives, including their “accent mark” campaign which includes adding an accent mark to the MLB logo and the debut of its first bilingual commercial. Proud Mexican Robert Osuna showed his country pride on Instagram:

??!!! Viva Mexico!

The Apple Doesn’t Fall Too Far…

SportsNet’s Barry Davis seems to have a little obsession with Joe Biagini. How can you not? As a reporter the quirky reliever is a goldmine for color stories and quotes. Well, it seems Joe may come across his humor genetically.

 

Fashion Do or Don’t?

Ever the loving son, Marcus Stroman treated his mom to a lovely Italian meal at Toca in Toronto’s Ritz Carlton


He posted a photo with the chef on Insta afterward.

Shout to @jitingaba for providing my mother and I with a variety of Italian food and tastes.

As well as tweeting this custom menu from the staff and more photos from the evening:


He was also spotted out on the town with Ryan Goins and Kevin Pillar at a charity event recently.  I’m hoping this was just one busy night on the town for the energetic pitcher, otherwise GASP, he’s recycling outfits!!! (I’m of the opinion that if you find a look that works, but you know, the fashionistas might not be so kind…).


Speaking of fashion – if you’re a cap collector, Stroman and Josh Donaldson both have new collections coming out from New Era Sept. 20.


California Dreaming

Jason Grilli spent a little time in Anaheim with the sand betwixt his toes

#VitaminSea…good for the soul! ??#anaheim #mlb

And Stroman enjoyed those chill Cali vibes with Devon Travis.

 

Everybody Knows

No words of wisdom this week – just this nugget from ESPN about Jays fans:
