I'm leaving off a couple players who only spent a season or two in Toronto. So no Molitor, Stewart, Clemens or Winfield.

C - Carlos Delgado started off as a catcher when he came in back in '94, so I'll cheat, place him here, and that will help out the 1st base logjam.
1B - John Olerud
2B - Roberto Alomar
SS - Tony Fernandez
3B - Kelly Gruber
OF - George Bell
OF - Joe Carter
OF - Devon White
DH - Cliff Johnson
SP - Dave Stieb
CL - Tom Henke

Rest of them:

C - Ernie Whitt
IF - Fred McGriff
IF - Damaso Garcia
IF - Alfredo Griffin
OF - Jesse Barfield
OF - Shawn Green

SP - Pat Hentgen
SP - David Wells
SP - Jimmy Key
SP - Jim Clancy

RP - Dennis Lamp
RP - Duane Ward
RP - Joey McLaughlin
RP - Billy Koch (the obligatory reliever that gives fans a coronary when they walk out from the bullpen)

I think Barfield should probably be a starter, maybe over Devon White. And Lloyd Moseby should make the honourable mention list.

i think clemens deserves a bit more recognition...the fact he had 2 consecutive cy youngs (more than any other starter listed) and was arguably the best pitcher in baseball those 2 years makes a very strong case for him.
i guess it's similar to the expos sp debate...do you vote for a guy who spent almost his whole career on that team or do you take the guy who spent a brief period of time there but was excellent?
i'd move joe carter to dh and put barfield with his gun in the of.



Marge: Mr. Scorpio, this house is almost too good for us. I keep expecting to get the bums rush.
Scorpio: We don't have bums in our town, Marge, and if we did, they wouldn't rush, they'd be allowed to go at their own pace.

Sure - his offensive numbers sucked, but nobody worries about that kind of thing with a guy like Ozzie Smith - so I'll ask...

WHERE IS PAT BORDERS????

Pat Borders - He was the original choice for back-up catcher. If I hadn't cheated to get both Delgado & Olerud on, he'd be there, he would be there and McGriff would be out. Whitt's there because I always liked Ernie. It's a personal bias thing.

Lloyd Moseby - My last cut. It was either him or Green.

Joe Carter as DH - I threw Cliff in there because he'd caught on occasions as well. I can't put George Bell in DH, because he'd get volatile about it. George was my original choice though, with Jesse as the 3rd outfielder. The other potential DHs fall under the short-term stay rule.

Rance Mulliniks - Damn! He's the guy I was trying to think of. He probably would have been my second last cut though. Maybe instead of Damaso? Tony & Alfredo were pretty versatile. For all Gruber's faults (going water-skiing while on the DL, for example) he's the choice at 3rd. Hinske looks to be able to blow both away if he continues like this, though.

And finally, Roy Lee Jackson should sing the anthems.

No love for Paul Molitor? Sure, he's a Minnesotan who gave his best years to my Brewers, but didn't he win Series MVP when you went over on Philly in '93?

Geez, Brewers suck even when they LEAVE Milwaukee. Dangit!

No, seriously. A good list, though I'd have Moseby and Barfield in the OF, Carter at DH.

I don't think he's saying Molitor sucked. He just wasn't in Toronto long enough (just a couple years) for consideration. Seems fair to me.

The Reds and Don Gullett will nab him, he'll be impressive for the first couple months of next year and then he'll flame out and be the same guy he's been for the past 2 years. I can almost guarantee it.
