LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!
Fisticuffs are rare in baseball. But, they do happen. They get crowds riled up. They get players ejected. They get players hurt. Just ask Zack Greinke. But, they can also turn the tide of a game.
In light of Carlos Gomez going off at Gerrit Cole yesterday, I thought it would be entertaining to take a look back at some recent brawls, dustups or bench clearing shenanigans of the Toronto Blue Jays. There are not many to choose from. The Blue Jays do not seem to have some half-crazy, juiced up meat head show off to get other teams riled up. Some fans have even questioned the team’s toughness over the years. Take a look at some of the altercations over the last couple years and decide: Are the Blue Jays tough? Do you have a favorite?
