Of course this Blue Jay of the Week comes at you the day of the teams intra-squad game and the day before the Grapefruit League opens up. I didn’t dig too deep this week, I went with the man who made headlines across baseball on Thursday.
This weeks Blue Jay of the Week is…. JP Arencibia! (@jparencibia9)
So what exactly did JP do this week?
You know… the usual.
Arrive early to camp, spend some time on Twitter and listen to his favourite country music all the while prepping for the day pitchers and catchers were to report.
That day came and went as baseball fans across the globe finally had that taste of baseball again, they could smell it in the air.
Then Thursday arrived and the Baseball Tonight crew rolled through Dunedin. Twitter was all abuzz once former Red Sox manager Terry Francona sat down with Blue Jays backstop. Why is this you may ask? Did the former coach of our hated rivals say something to cause an issue or was it our young slugger who brought the attention to the situation?
Apparently JPA does quite the impression of BBTN’s analyst Tim Kurkjian and he was given the opportunity to show the world, luckily Kurkjian wasn’t too far away at the time.
This should be the final slow week before things are in full swing for 2012 and a little bit of humour such as this was enough to make JP Arencibia the Blue Jay of the Week!
