Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista had a lot to say about the Cleveland Indians throughout the American League Championship Series. The Indians had the final word and the final tweets on the matter after winning the series Wednesday.

As Chris Cwik of Yahoo Sports noted, Bautista blamed "circumstances" being against the Blue Jays for Toronto's woes early into the series. Per Mike Axisa of CBS Sports, Bautista told reporters before Game 5 that unproven Cleveland starter Ryan Merritt would be "shaking in his boots" before taking the mound.

Merritt handled himself well, pitching 4.1 scoreless innings to help the Indians notch a 3-0 victory and a 4-1 series win over Toronto.

The team's official Twitter account and multiple Indians players decided to celebrate winning the pennant by trolling Bautista, who turned 36 years old on Wednesday, via social media:
