The Blue Jays carry a grudge like no other. They still won’t let that Alex Rodriguez pop-up incident die.
Last night, during their second straight loss to the Yanks, Toronto played an in-stadium promo poking fun at A-Rod. The Daily News has more:
In a video game promotion in the middle of the sixth inning, two Jays fans were playing a baseball game on the scoreboard screen, pitching to A-Rod. Twice they threw at him, missing once and hitting him once and leaving Joe Torre unhappy.
“It’s ridiculous,” Torre said after the Yanks beat Toronto, 4-1. “Some of the videos they have period, it’s all about violence. There are certain cities, one of our players gets knocked down and they start laughing and cheering. I don’t understand it.
The Blue Jays, in the past, have advocated booing Hideki Matsui for coming over from Japan and seem to have no class.
No matter; we’ll take it out on them in October. Oh wait. The Blue Jays won’t be playing in October and haven’t since 1993. Too bad.
