Guhhhhhhh, it just gets more embarrassing to see the Blue Jays organization suck up to Red Sox fans.
Drunk Jays Fans gets credit for the find; the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Jays' farm team in the Double-A Eastern League, are going to have a Bobblehead Night for Jacoby Ellsbury and Clay Buchholz this summer. Neither ever swung a bat or threw a pitch for the Fisher Cats, but they play for the nearby Boston Red Sox and well, there's profit to be had, right?
First it was selling tickets to Boston fans before offering the ducats to local supporters; now this. This is what happens when a screwhead like Paul Godfrey dictates the culture of an organization. Paul Beeston and Pat Gillick would never in a million years let one of their farm club muddy the Blue Jays brand. Major-league baseball teams typically have some sway over the promotions their affiliates hold. Suffice to say, the Fisher Cats sure didn't have to worry about offending the highers-up when they decided to smooch a little Masshole keister.
New Hampshire isn't hard up for fans. They set a club attendance record last season and that wasn't all from visits by Portland, Boston's farm team in the Eastern League.
