Kevin Pillar

That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars

What Blue Jays are liking so far this season is the hot bat of Pillar.

Justin Smoak

The Weekend by Brantley Gilbert

"Live it up for the weekend Pour it up, have the time of your life Take a shot full of regrets Double up and it’s bound to get buck wild"

Gilbert and co-writer Andrew DeRoberts never met until the song had been written. They actually conducted the songwriting over the phone.

For the country fans, Smoak is the only batter in the lineup to even use a country song.
