    Can a mod who is knowledgable about Jay's history add a poll to this thread?

    I want the results for the All-Time position by position battle. I have a thread about it in the history forum if you're interested.

    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.

    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.

    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! beat me to it....these were the EXACT suggestions I was going to make too....
