I get why they did it, still dumb. Decent chance he wont be up until the 2nd inning now. 

On the bright side, there is at least a greater than zero chance now that Vlad Jr hits a grand slam in his first MLB at bat!

No I’m super hype about him, and I don’t even own him in my keeper. Why is it glass half empty to suggest wearing his dad’s jersey isn’t some “wearing Montreal in Toronto” moxy? 

Sorry, I’ll make sure to post only if it’s to show my undying love. He is thicc af

So from what I saw, very patient and a good eye especially in his debut. Took some close pitches but didn’t seem overly aggressive as a power hitter. His swing is explosive. Tons of torque in his swing and the ball jumps off his bat. Definitely can see why there’s so much hype surrounding him. The best part was seeing him smile and be loose. He’s genuinely having fun and with that kind of demeanor he’s gonna be a solid player.

Vlad is going to get that Blue Jay lineup going and murder AL East ball parks.

The pressure had to be incredible on him .20 years old and didn’t show any nerves . 

I was more nervous than he was 

Looking forward to owning him a long long time .

For anyone that didn’t watch:

1sr at bat - hard hit ground out to first

2nd at bat - lines out down the left field wall  2 feet higher and it was gone.  defender made a good catch 

3rd at bat - flew out to right center field  just shy of the warning track 

4th at bat - led off the 9th, 2 strikes and he shoots one down the opposite field line for a double  

it was a great first game. Took a couple of called strikes that looked off the plate. Has a powerful but beautiful swing. He’s going to be special

You wish you were 5% as successful as any of those "horrific losers."  Calm down on the hyperbole.
