If you’re like me, it’s almost gotten to the point where things have gotten oversaturated with Blue Jays rumours. So ahead of tomorrow’s non-waiver trade deadline, I decided to throw a #FakeJaysRumour hashtag out there earlier today just for fun.
So feel free to use the hashtag #FakeJaysRumour and tweet out your completely fabricated, unsubstantiated trade rumour involving the Toronto Blue Jays.
Because for all we know, that’s exactly what some of the “sources” out there could be doing.
For a team that has had three of their five starters go down to significant injury, their closer shelved for the season, their star slugger on the DL, and losing their everyday catcher with a broken hand, the Blue Jays have remained surprisingly resilient.
Although Toronto has never been more than 5 games above .500 at any point this season, at the same time they’ve never been more than 2 games below .500.
Aside from winning a World Series ring, an All-Star selection is one of the greatest honours that can be bestowed upon a Major League Baseball player. While the game itself might be somewhat of a farce, it’s the All-Star selection which most players are proud of.
Now while some players are disappointed about being snubbed for the All-Star Game, they can seek solace in being selected as the next best thing; a Moustache All-Star.
