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.

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.”

In another response, Stroman said, “Outside opinions are irrelevant.”

Arencibia agrees with Stroman.

Stroman renewed the discussion on Twitter yesterday.

Players sharing their opinions is always juicy, especially when it’s so obviously directed towards on individual in particular.
