I was going to say nothing but now everyone is saying stuff and I feel a little radio silent.
Kevin Pillar should not have used that word. He should remove it from his vocabulary.
His apology in the post-game scrum last night fell short, but I am willing to give Pillar, a seemingly otherwise decent person, a chance to do a better one.
Sometimes you have to meet a person where they are and pull them forward rather than yelling at them from a distance. That's how change happens. Sports culture has issues and last night, that was apparent.
I think this is an opportunity for the Blue Jays to actually use this to start to reach out to the LGBT community in Toronto and in sports, because this goes beyond just Pillar running his mouth.
You Can Play Project is a good start. Actually engaging LGBT people and ask them how to better include them would also be good. Make something positive out of this.
That's my two cents.
Also, any fan or player that wishes violence on José Bautista because he flipped his bat need to stop being pissbabies and to GTFO.
