Though a far cry from writing a gay slur on your face, Marcus Stroman’s joy at receiving a Chick-Fil-A gift card for his birthday seems like the last thing the Jays want an already suspended player expressing his political views about at this time. Toronto is likely one of the most progressive city in the league and alienating the supporters of the LGBT community is likely not the marketing strategy that the brass had in mind in 2012. It isn’t quite on the level of Ozzie Guillen starting the Castro Bros. Fan Club in Miami either, but perhaps the Jays should be providing sensitivity/media training starting at the time contracts are signed.
