So much for only Romero and Bautista being safe. Here’s the Jays first Sportsnet promo for the 2012 season, featuring their stellar new uniforms and some nebulous gibberish about being “fuelled by tradition.”

I miss James Brown.

Hat tip to Joanna– aka @HumandChuck– for the find.

  1. The Escobar bat twirl is BADASS.
    Aaaw no Morrow?


  3. missing James Brown but loving hearing the Heavy from England in this promo.  Great song

  4. Jeez.  There has been more posts this off-season than there is during the season.

    Good stuff.

  5. They seem to have “borrowed” the Winnipeg Jets “Fueled by Passion” slogan

  6. JP Morosi is going to be on Prime Time in a minute if you want to hear more Fielder talk.

  7. Really? Lind for Garza? Do it now!

  8. I fucking love it.  James Brown is nice, but so is that beat.  It’s bangin’ yo!

    And as for TY, I laughed my ass off at your coment.

  9. Last December we posted 21 times in the whole month.

    Posted 10 so far and it won’t be December 2nd for another 5 hours.

    It’s been a few months since theScore made this my full-time job. Took me a little while to get rolling, but I think I’ve got it now.

  10. How skinny does Arencibia look following Lawrie.

  11. It’s good. But come on, James Brown is Soul Brother Number One, Mr. Dynamite, The Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Minister of The New New Super Heavy Funk, Mr. Please Please Please, The Boss, the Godfather of Soul. Let’s be serious here.

  12. I know, I know, but the lyrics are are perfect in terms of introducing a new feel and new look: “how you like me now?!”  For a new Jays fan, I li-kee very much.  But I always loved the James Brown stuff last year also. 

  13. How come Adam Lind was with those baseball players?

  14. No love for Diddy or the Black Keys? Suuriousleee. The people picking promo music manage to pick their messages very well, without resorting to the cliche very often.

  15. Yunel looks so fucking awesome in this vid.  Great uniform, bat twirl.

  16. In all seriousness, he really did look out of place didn’t he?

  17. Yunel has so much swag.
