TORONTO BLUE JAYS SOCIAL MEDIA BUZZ: Dads, the World Baseball Classic and Dogs

 

As the regular season approaches, Toronto Blue Jays pitchers shine – Stroman in the WBC, Grilli in an epic throwback and Frankie in a mohawk.

 

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

 

Like Father, Like Son

If this Insta from Jason Grilli doesn’t hit you in the feels, check your pulse…

 

Ryan Tepera had his own flashback photo with his dad to share.

 

And this isn’t a throwback photo yet – but Jose Bautista, and the rest of the men on Team Dominican Republic formed a bond that MLB teams won’t break during their time in the World Baseball Classic.

 

And while Big Earl isn’t in this group, Marcus Stroman keeps things all in the family too, bringing some of his fam along as he helped Team USA make it to the finals of the World Baseball Classic.

 

World Baseball Classic

 

And while we’re talking about Marcus Stroman – like the rest of the world! – how ’bout that performance last night, eh? And against a team he could have actually represented (he’s Puerto Rican on his mother’s side in case you didn’t know). Baseball storylines don’t get much better than that!

 

The rest of the world learned last night just how special this guy is – and how lethal that Toronto Blue Jays starting rotation  is…

 

Style and Swagger

 

(I promise this entire article won’t be a Stroman lovefest – just bear with me…) Stro has a reputation for dressing well, and not just in the eyes of his adoring fans. Team USA teammates see it too…

 

Francisco Liriano updated his ‘do recently and it didn’t go unnoticed – especially by fellow pitcher and former Pittsburgh Pirates teammate AJ Burnett. He commented, “Sick hair #mohawk.” Burnett was quite the fan of that particular hairstyle himself.

Always Time for Fans

 

Roberto Osuna knows how to make a person’s day. twice. Not only did this fan get to chat and take photos with him, but he got a coveted retweet too!

Also – How long has Osuna had braces?

 

So does Marcus Stroman

 

Shameless Ad

 

WestJet really knows how to get peoples’ attention. Like, who doesn’t want to know what’s up with Aaron Sanchez and this adorable puppy?

Too much fun working with this little guy 🐶 @westjet

Let’s just hope the two ads are only LOOSELY connected…

 

Speaking of dogs – Josh Donaldson‘s is still as cute as ever.

Mood.

Words of Wisdom

 

This world can be hard to navigate sometimes. But baseball can always get you through. This week’s words of wisdom come from the Bringer of Rain himself:

 

That’s it for this edition of the Toronto Blue Jays Social Media Buzz. Have a great week and #GoJaysGo (I’d use #LetsRise, but the lack of apostrophe still hurts this grammar nerd).
