  • All-time Toronto Blue Jays team

    What's your all-time Toronto Blue Jays team? Here's mine and feel free to comment.

    1B: Carlos Delgado (C/LF) (slugger,RBI driver)
    2B: Roberto Alomar
    3B: Rance Mulliniks (2B/SS)
    SS: Tony Fernandez (2B/3B)
    C: Ernie Whitt (had a good run in the 1980's)
    LF: George Bell (2B/3B) (this guy hit alot of doubles)
    CF: Shannon Stewart (OF) (alot of hits in 2001 and high enough hitting %)
    RF: Joe Carter (1B/OF) (although not a high hitting %, he came clutch at the 1993 WS)
    Util: John Olerud (1B) (I'd have him pinch hit)
    Al Woods (OF)
    Lloyd Moseby (OF)




    SP:Jimmy Key
    Dave Stieb (numerous SO's)
    Roy Halladay (now before someone says 'fan favorite' I'll say that he does have good enough ERA)
    Juan Guzman (numerous 10+ win seasons as a starter)
    David Wells



    RP/CP: Tom Henke
    Mike Timlin
    Roy Lee Jackson

    My Top 4 funniest BBF posts ever:

    1) "plZ dOn;t' pOsT LikE tHIs n e mOr!"

    2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

    3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

    4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

    5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...

    anytime of minimum games played or at bats as a Jay in order to make the list?

      That's for you to decide, there's no rule about the length of time. I usually limit the players to have played on a team for at least 5 seasons, which is reasonable time, then I look at if the player played on that team longer than other teams and if he did good enough. It's up you, though.

      edit, 4/9: It's 4 years now.

        Looks good to me, but I'd take Devon White over Stewart for centre (infinitely better defense), and would have to make Duane Ward one of my relievers.

        I like your choice of Rance Mulliniks. Never had spectacular stats, wasn't a flashy guy, but solid and dependable. One of my all-time faves!

                  Getting back to Mulliniks again, I read that he'll be doing colour-commentary for Sportsnet for 28 games this year. Go Rance!

                        Attention:1 week remains for you to fill out your entries for the all-time Blue Jays team, so get those entries in.

                        Once the week has passed, we will start discussing about who out of the chosen, makes the 25 man roster.

                          Why's everybody taking Carter over Green for OF? I say Bell, Green and Barfield. Devo's glove is amazing, but statistically, I don't think the variability in OF defense at the big-league level affects the outcome of games nearly enough to justify him over those three. Maybe put him the bench in hopes of convincing Bell to DH...uh, right. Anyway, Barfield's defense was pretty amazing too.
                          On Mulliniks vs Gruber, I'd take Gruber, for speed and power. Rance platooned with Iorg; if you can fill a position without platooning, that gives you flexibility at other positions.

                          How do we get Carlos and Olerud both in? if one DHs then we can't have Molitor (assuming the uncontroversial Alomar and Fernandez)--but then again, what's the length-of-service criterion?

                          Oh well, this is more fun that watching this year's crew will be.

                          Henke and Ward, for sure. Mark Eichorn if we're going by single-season peak value (that 86 season still amazes me!) Starters other than Key and Stieb depend on the inclusion criterion.
