Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia took to the airwaves to rip into two popular Sportsnet TV analysts.

Arencibia told Toronto radio station Fan 590 that not many players in the Jays clubhouse think highly of Gregg Zaun and Dirk Hayhurst.

“It’s unfortunate that fans have to hear those guys talk as much as they do. There’s not one person in the clubhouse that respects those guys," Arencibia said. "Not a lot of us, including myself, respect the person that uses performance-enhancing drugs and was able to stick around as a below-average player in the major leagues.”

Arencibia said he never used PEDs, before continuing on to criticize Hayhurst.

“There was a guy who had below-average baseball tools,” Arencibia said.

Here's some of Twitter reaction to the controversial comments:
