Former Blue Jay RIPS Controversial Toronto Pitcher Anthony Bass

While the fallout from the latest Anthony Bass debacle continues in Toronto, a former Blue Jays pitcher, apparently with ties still to the players on the current team, has trashed the controversial Bass after his insensitive actions around the LGBTQ community.

In replying to a scathing editorial from a Toronto reporter trashing Bass, former Jays hurler Marcus Stroman — never one to keep his opinions to himself either — tweeted that nobody on the current Jays team likes Bass. 

"None of his teammates or staff want him in their locker room," wrote Stroman on Twitter. 

He also retweeted another bashing of the pitcher with the far-right views, which said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, this is what a coward looks like. Men, never be Anthony Bass. And women, never marry a 'man' like Anthony Bass."

Bass issued a terse, 30-second 'apology' in response to his recent sharing of a video on his Instagram account calling for Christians to boycott Bud Light and Target because of their LGBTQ-friendly stances. He took no questions after the short statement. 

Blue Jays manager John Schneider wasn't happy with Bass's so-called 'apology.'

"We’re not going to pretend like this never happened. We’re not going to pretend like it’s the end and move on," said Schneider. "There are definitely more steps that are going to follow."

Bass, who has been mostly a disaster on the field this year as well, was also in trouble earlier this season for calling out an airline stewardess on social media who asked his family to clean up the mess they'd left behind on the plane. 

According to Stroman—and pretty much all Blue Jays fans—the team would do well to completely disassociate themselves from the 'mess' that is this contentious pitcher.
