Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is doing everything he can to be the Yankees’ next great villain, both on and off the field.
He certainly knows how to rile the Bronx faithful.
At a team event, a young fan asked Guerrero which was the “easiest team” to face in 2022.

Guerrero thought for a moment and answered “the Yankees.”
Yankees fans were quick to remind Guerrero that the Yankees went 11-8 against the Blue Jays last season.
The Blue Jays were widely considered the best team in the AL East last year, but the Yanks won the division in Toronto territory.

This isn’t the first time a Blue Jays star has thrown shade at the Yanks this offseason. In November, Alek Manoah called Yankee pitcher Gerrit Cole the biggest cheater in baseball due to his past use of sticky things.
Despite the Yankees’ success against Toronto last year, Guerrero has been a thorn in the Yankees’ side.

Guerrero is a .289 hitter in 65 games against the Yanks, hitting 13 home runs and driving in 41 runs. That’s a pace of 162 32-homer, 102-RBI games.
If Guerrero and Manoah continue to talk trash, and back it up with their excellent skill, they will join the likes of David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez and José Altuve as villains for the Yankees.
