PHOTO: Kyle Lowry, DeRozan chill with Blue Jays — and a movie star

What's the best way to get pumped for the basketball season? How about a little postseason baseball?

The Toronto Blue Jays are down, trailing the Kansas City Royals 3-1 in the ALCS, but they're not out yet. And if the Jays manage to storm back and make it to the World Series, maybe they can thank some luck from their city brethren, the Toronto Raptors.

After all, is it a coincidence that the one Toronto win so far in the series has come with DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry on hand to support the Blue Jays? After the Game 3 victory earlier this week, Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman posted a photo to Twitter of DeRozan, Lowry, Stroman himself, and … actor Gerard Butler?

That's a whole lot of professional success in one photo. Here's hoping the Blue Jays can come all the way back and give the Raptors a blueprint for how to bring a championship to Toronto.
