Blue Jays Morning Brew: Vladdy, Bautista and Osuna goes yard
Your Toronto Blue Jays news and notes for Sunday, October 15th includes a bat flip anniversary, the Vladdy dance and Roberto Osuna showing off his power.
On a day where the Toronto Blue Jays should be overshadowed by postseason baseball, some Jays players provided us with video gold. Sit back and enjoy this installment of the Brew.
Estrada Meant It
Marco Estrada appeared on the MLB Radio Network and once again reiterated his strong desire to remain in Toronto. I think it’s safe to assume he meant it when he said he wanted to stick around.
Osuna Homers From Left Side
Roberto Osuna hit a bomb yesterday from the left side while playing in a friendly exhibition game in Mexico. Osuna even stopped for a selfie at third base before rounding the bases. This kid can do it all.
Vladdy Gets Down And Dirty
Super prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. stroked a triple in the Dominican Winter League yesterday and proceeded to follow it up with some sort of provocative dance. This was covered earlier on Jays Journal by Chris Henderson, however, it is too good not to re-post.
Bat Flip Anniversary

Don’t Give Your Cell Phone To A Mascot
Sportsnet Reporter Hazel Mae is in Houston covering the postseason and a certain mascot seemed to take a liking to her. Orbit the Astros mascot decided to take the reporters cell phone and proceeded to videotape her.
Fall League Round-Up
Our friend Keegan Matheson provided a Fall/Winter League Report for yesterdays contests. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit his first homer of the fall while T.J. Zeuch dominated with a perfect outing on the bump in Arizona.
