  • All-time Canada Team

    Not to be confused with Canadian-born players, but pick the best players who played for the Blue Jays or Expos.

    C Darrin Fletcher
    1B Carlos Delgado
    2B Roberto Alomar
    3B Rance Mulliniks
    SS Tony Fernandez
    LF Tim Raines
    CF Jesse Barfield (?)
    RF Vladimir Guerrero
    DH* Paul Molitor

    * = If needed

    Bench
    C Gary Carter
    2B Jose Vidro
    UTL Wil Cordero
    (?)
    OF Shawn Green
    OF Devon White
    OF Moises Alou
    OF George Bell
    OF Andre Dawson
    OF Rondell White


    Starting Rotation
    SP Pat Hentgen
    SP Roy Halladay
    SP Dave Stieb
    SP Jimmy Key
    SP Steve Rogers

    Bullpen
    CL Jeff Reardon
    CL Mel Rojas
    CL John Wetteland
    RP Mike Timlin
    Spot SP Dennis Martinez

    I got some problems here:

    There are so many outfielders that can possibly make this team. I don't know who should start in center field. I want to limit my bench to just six players, so three gotta go...

      I'll take 125 osprey's list and make one substitution: Larry Walker for George Bell.

        I'm suprised no one's mentioned Kelly Gruber yet.

          Very good list - one of the better "all whatever" lists the past few days. Nice job! I agree with adding Walker, however. Also nice to see some love for Rogers, who in my opinion is one of the most underatted pitchers in baseball history.

            Are you doing this based on thier numbers in an Expos/Jays uniform or career in total?

              Im guessing career in total if guys like Alou are there.

              In that case, no list is complete without Pedro Martinez and Roger Clemens if you are so inclined.

                Steve Rogers was something else, wasn't he? Damn that Rick Monday to hell... It still hurts 26 years later.

                  This topic got me interested in compiling a team made up of players who were actually born in Canada. I didn't include players from the 19th century. I don't know if they retained Canadian citizenship. I paid a visit to baseballreference.com and this is what I came up with. It looks fairly competitive.

                  Puhl played RF, didn't he? There wasn't room for him there so I moved him to centre. He was fast enough to play the position.

                    I didnt realize McCaskill was Canadian born.
                    I knew he went to U of Vermont and was a good hockey player.

                      I'm doing this based on their numbers as a Jay/Expo. What makes Alou not worth talking about on this team? :noidea

                        Russell Martin and Erik Bedard?

                          Bedard's omission was indeed an oversight. Who should I drop from the roster?

                          Yes, Russell could easily take the place of Clarke in a season or two. Even though I have Clarke down as my starting catcher, he would be the one to leave in order to make room for Russell.

                          Despite his enemic offence, I wanted to include Gibson on the team because he played fourteen solid seasons and appeared to be defensively competent.

                            Ford and Marchildon were interesting discoveries. I had never heard of them before yesterday.
