VIDEO: Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. goes full Bo Jackson vs. Yankees
Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. couldn’t hide his frustration on Wednesday amid the team’s offensive struggles against the New York Yankees.
After he was struck out by Jameson Taillon in the fifth inning, Guerrero was so mad at himself that he slammed the bat onto the ground before going full Bo Jackson and snapping it into two with his knee.
The pieces of the bat fell on the batter’s box. Fortunately, Vladdy won’t be facing any punishment since there is no rule in the MLB regarding destroying the bat in frustration.

The Blue Jays ended up losing to the Yankees 5-3 as they continue their slide in the American League. They also failed to win in their previous game against New York, albeit a closer one at 6-5.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Toronto have now lost four straight games and seven of their last 10, which should only add more frustration for the star baseman.
It remains to be seen how the Blue Jays will address their current woes and stop the team from falling further. Sure enough, the 2022 season is still long and they still have plenty of chances to figure things out. However, it will be for the best if they can get out of their slump sooner rather than later.
If their problems persist, who knows how many more bats Vlad Jr. will destroy.
