Players from the Blue Jays and those from the Bronx team have shown friction with each other and the confrontations between these two teams from the American League East usually have fired spirits.
Manoah who became an All-Star for the first time in 2022 by having 16 wins with a 2.24 ERA and thus placing third in the American League Cy Young Award. The Blue Jays thus having a better season than Cole, who had 13 wins and a 3.50 earned run percentage.
Gerrit Cole has been pointed out on more than one occasion for allegedly using improper substances to improve performance when pitching, as his numbers fell after the incorporation of a new rule that prohibited the use of sticky substances when pitching in 2021, in especially the Spider Tack.
To this is added that he was part of the Houston Astros title in MLB 2017 that involved sign theft.
