Marcus Stroman tore into former Blue Jays teammate Randal Grichuk via Twitter on Saturday after Grichuk backed an accusation about Stroman’s prior treatment of minor league players.
Grichuk said an allegation from Aubrey Huff that Stroman once kicked 30 younger teammates out of a weight room so he could skip rope by himself “was a known story around players in the Jays team/system.”
Stroman then wrote a scathing response that touched on Grichuk’s disappointing on-field play in 2019.
“You’ve done nothing but talk about me behind my back,” Stroman wrote. “Consistently. I’ve always kept my mouth shut and let it slide. Ask YOUR teammates and Canada who they [would] rather have on their team… you or me. I already know the answer. Continue to under achieve and talk s— about teammates!”
Grichuk, who has been part of Twitter feuds with fellow players before, opted not to fully engage with Stroman afterward. Stroman then made sure to get the last word.
“Haha keep thinking that’s true,” Grichuk wrote. “Don’t be mad at me because I liked a tweet that was the truth. Have a good day my man.”
Responded Stroman: “My day is beyond great. Good luck playing for a nation that now knows your true colors. Have a splendid day my G!”
Stroman, now a member of the Mets, was a central figure for the Blue Jays organization before being dealt to the “Big Apple.” He posted a 3.76 ERA in six years with Toronto.
Grichuk, meanwhile, signed a five-year contract extension with Toronto last April.
