The Toronto Blue Jays put the bow on Spring Training while getting in some family time, goofing off with dairy products and challenging fans.

 

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

 

Countdown to Montreal

 

The Toronto Blue Jays are taking their show in the road, for two games in Montreal’s Olympic Stadium against the Pittsburgh Pirates March 31 and April 1. Russell Martin is is hyped for his third Spring Training exhibition series in a Blue Jays uniform in the ballpark of his childhood dreams – are you?

 

Help a Grilli Out!

 

Jason Grilli is asking for some help captioning this Insta shot – not sure if you win anything, maybe the love and adoration of a great reliever…isn’t that enough?

Caption, please! (Keep it clean) 👊🏼😂

Kevin Pillar is also making a request of his followers on Instagram…or is that a challenge?

Yes, the long-awaited 2017 edition of MLB The Show debuted March 28, and despite all of the server issues, people are loving the action, including Roberto Osuna, who retweeted this post from a fan:

 

Aaron Sanchez graces the cover of the Canadian version. He shared his thoughts on the honor with the folks at PlayStation Canada.

 

Same Bagged Milk, Different Pitcher

 

Last year it was JA Happ creating a the bagged milk storyline. This year, at least right now, it seems Ryan Tepera, is the point man for the fun. One would think that as a pitcher in the Jays system since 2009, who has spent a little time in Toronto, he’d have tried Canadian milk delivery systems by now.

That’s it for this edition of the Toronto Blue Jays Social Media Buzz. Have a great week and Jays fans, #LetsRise!

 

WRITER’S NOTE: I will be at the series in Montreal, likely loaded down by the weight of a loaded down camera bag and agog at seeing The Big O for the first time. Please give a shout, wave or say hello if you see me, I love chatting up Jays fans when I travel!
