Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has already established himself as one of MLB’s best offensive players, speaking directly to fans after a win over American League East rivals the Boston Red Sox. Currently, the Toronto Blue Jays are one of baseball’s best teams with a 6-2 home record while playing north of the Canadian border.
It remains to be seen if this excellent home game can be sustained through a full season, but the Toronto Blue Jays league leaders have high hopes that they will. A clutch homer from George Springer tied it, and a sacrificial fly from Raimel Tapia secured the win in the tenth inning.
The Atlantic published the Guerrero quote, which cheered Toronto fans. See the tweet below.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is a key contributor to the Toronto Blue Jays’ success and is loved by teammates and fans alike. If he continues to play at his established high level, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could go down as one of the greatest athletes in Toronto sports history.
