The high expectations that were thrust upon the Blue Jays this year have made things tough. Sure, the team on paper should be one of the best in baseball. But we know that the game isn’t played on paper for a reason. Frustration is mounting and one player (who is struggling right now) has called out the critics.
J.P. Arencibia is having a tough time. although he is amongst the top in catcher in the MLB for homers (15 so far this season) he’s hitting .212 and striking out a lot 90 times so far this year). He’s hearing it from the critics and has fired back.
J.P was on a Toronto sports radio station this morning and called out two former Major Leaguers, Dirk Hayhurst and Greg Zaun. Even dropped the bomb about one of them that is a hot button in baseball.

So should J.P be throwing stones or just shut it and worry about the game?
