While the MLB postseason continues and the New York Yankees attempt to make a comeback in the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, Marcus Stroman has other focuses.
Per his Twitter, Stroman just bought his dream house. He’s been working out with Rowdy Tellez, and building his HDMH brand with input from young “pitchers and athletes” that are “always reaching out.”
He’s also been throwing shade at members of the Sportsnet Blue Jays crew, namely Gregg Zaun.
J.P. Arencibia, the former Blue Jay catcher, is returning to the University of Tennessee as a coach and to finish his degree. Stroman, congratulating Arencibia, expressed his interest in having Arencibia join the Sportsnet team.
Congrats my guy! Hopefully get you on @sportsnet soon. They need you more than they know. Time for a change! #outwiththeoldinwiththenew— Marcus Stroman (@MStrooo6) October 6, 2017
This wouldn’t be the first time Stroman has roasted Sportsnet. Earlier this season, after Gregg Zaun said he didn’t like the way Stroman was expressing himself on the mound in a series against the Los Angeles Angels, Stroman responded to a tweet about Zaun saying, “Don’t waste your energy on non-credible sources.”
Don't waste energy on non-credible sources. Thank you for your support though!— Marcus Stroman (@MStrooo6) April 24, 2017
In another response, Stroman said, “Outside opinions are irrelevant.”
Outside opinions are irrelevant. Especially when they come from sources with zero credibility. Appreciate your support though my man!— Marcus Stroman (@MStrooo6) April 24, 2017
Arencibia agrees with Stroman.
Haha love it!! I agree. Guess ex players try to hard to be shock jock, forget how hard game is... https://t.co/AvP0QN8opO— Jp Arencibia (@jparencibia9) October 6, 2017
Stroman renewed the discussion on Twitter yesterday.
Nothing yet my dude...— Jp Arencibia (@jparencibia9) October 17, 2017
That's what I've been saying since 2013.— Jp Arencibia (@jparencibia9) October 17, 2017
Players sharing their opinions is always juicy, especially when it’s so obviously directed towards on individual in particular.
