The Toronto Blue Jays are sign-stealers and have tarnished the game of baseball with their antics. All of Jose Bautista's home runs can be attributed to a man in white, strategically positioned in the outfield seats and waving his arms around like a fool to signal a fastball is on the way. We know this because of an ESPN investigative report using anecdotal and somewhat flimsy statistical evidence -- players accused the Blue Jays of using said man in white and because Rogers Center is dinger-friendly, Toronto must be cheats.
Just hours after the report was released, though, we received the best evidence yet indicating the Blue Jays were, in fact, stealing signs. And the evidence shows just how brash these darn cheats are.

I don't know who these fans are, but this may be the perfect response to the allegations. In moments like these, it's not best to meet the accusations with anger or denial: flat-out mockery is always the way to go. I can only hope the Blue Jays planted the fans out there as a giant middle finger to the world.
