Marcus Stroman has received a ton of support from current and former players in regards to the hurlers swagger and the way he carries himself on the diamond. One of the biggest supporters backing Stroman is former Blue Jays outfielder Jesse Barfield.

Marcus Stroman‘s character and behaviour on the field was called into question last week after a verbal sparring match with umpires and Tim Anderson of the Chicago White Sox. In a nutshell, Stroman responded to his critics on social media advising his haters and doubters that he was never going to change or stop playing with a chip on his shoulder.

Former Blue Jays outfielder Jesse Barfield who is a loyal Blue Jays supporter on social media offered up a new walk-up song for the “Stro-Show” in light of the drama around the 26-year old. Barfield tweeted Stroman a clip of the 112 remix with Notorious B.I.G and Mase titled Only You that was released in 1996.

Stroman was 5-years old when the track debuted in the mid-nineties but the song is a hip-hop classic even to this very day. The clip fittingly features Puff Daddy repeatedly offering the warning “I thought I told you that we won’t stop.” Stroman was feeling what Barfield was throwing down responding to Barfield with a tweet that the track is legendary and he may use it for his next home start.

Barfield didn’t stop with just hip-hop offerings, he also let Stroman know that he has the young hurlers back and is proud of him. You have the love the comradery between current and former Blue Jays players.

I personally can’t wait to see Stroman stroll from the bullpen with Russell Martin by his side with that tune belting from the Rogers Centre speakers. Just like Bad Boy Entertainment ruled the 90’s, Stroman rules the bump with no shortage of mound presence. Don’t ever stop.
