The Toronto Blue Jays released their promotions and events calendar for the upcoming season and much to the chagrin of many the team has only one bobblehead giveaway planned for 2019.
By no means am I a marketing major but one would think if the product on the field is going to be less than sub-par, you should probably refrain from eliminating promotions that bring fans in droves through the gates. Just sayin’
I personally don’t partake in the bobblehead obsession but I understand that middle-aged men get in a tizzy for their ceramic dolls. Seemingly for most, it is worth the price of admission. Yet, the Blue Jays have cut the number of bobbleheads from four in 2018, if you include the Stroman Shimmy Wobble Bobble, to one lone Lourdes Gurriel Jr. #PinaPower bobblehead giveaway in 2019.
The Blue Jays did make up for it though, drumroll please………..wait for it, ……six loonie dog nights. That’s right folks, hot dogs for a buck, maximum four per transaction, the fine print will get you every time. Who needs a collectible for the mantle when you can have Schneiders finest cuts of meat for a buck.

In defence of the Jays, all is not lost, there is still a Marcus StroGnome giveaway on Mother’s Day for that special lady in your life who has it all. If gnomes don’t tickle your fancy there will also be a Grichuk Ran-Doll promotion on Canada Day. Not sure what it is but it sounds fabulous.
Perhaps the Blue Jays are saving the surprise Vladdy Jr. Bobblehead Day for when the slugger finally debuts, which for the record will not be at the start of the season. The faith in bobblehead humanity could instantly be restored in one fell swoop with a Guerrero bobblehead.
For the love of God, the Jays need to do better, you can’t have the product on the field and the promotions department both in the AL East basement.
Bobbleheads, that’s what the fine folks of this great country want……. and maybe hot dogs.
