All you need to know about all 10 of the Toronto Blue Jays on Twitter.
Rejoyce, Blue Jays fans! The team has come out with their 2012 Promotional Schedule.
There are lots of great giveaways this season, including three .. yes, three bobblehead giveaway days. Brandon Morrow, Ricky Romero and Yunel Escobar will all be available in bobblehead form.
The best part is that the giveaways have increased from the first 10,000 fans to the first 20,000 fans. That’s twice the amount of bobbleheads, which is great news because the giveaways seemed to go especially fast last season.
Here are a few other noteabale giveaway days:
April 9: Honda Home Opener, Rally Towel Giveaway
May 20: Brandon Morrow Bobblehead Giveaway
June 3: Yunel Escobar Bobblehead Giveaway
June 13: 2012 Team Card Set Giveaway
June 17: Father’s Day, Blue Jays Batting Helmet Giveaway
August 12: Blue Jays Cap Giveaway
August 19: Ricky Romero Giveaway
September 30: Fan Appreciation T-Shirt Giveaway

The other day, Ricky Romero asked Darren Oliver for advice. After three fine seasons, Romero is having an awful time in his fourth. This is Oliver’s 19th season, and he is 41 years old, so Romero thought he might offer some insights about how to escape a long slump.
Instead, Oliver simply said:…
