Yeah, I know he's not a superstar, but he did win the Cy Young award in 1996 and carried himself with class throughout his career.

Hentgen departs with his dignity

Pat was part of Toronto's two World Series victories in 1992 and 1993, and after a decent comeback from Tommy John surgery in 2001, re-joined the Jays for the 2004 season. Unfortunately, he went 2-9 with a 6.95 ERA this season, and he was smart enough to see the writing on the wall.

I was a big fan through his career and I was lucky enough to see him start when I was in Toronto a couple of months back. Pat also was my main inspiration for a certain method of facial hair. I still like to wear "the Hentgen" every now and then.

Well, give him credit for not hanging on through the rest of the season, getting paid to suck, and allowing some new talent to get called up to replace him. Thats pretty classy, if you ask me.



Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

It was kind of tough watching him get shalacked all over the yard every time out this season. I think he made the right decision... I always thought he was a class act. I actually met him about ten years ago at a Red Lopster. Now there's an intersting story.. or not LoL

I was actually quite surprised that I was able to pick up Mears. I was sure you would get him first, knowing your feelings about Relief Pitchers. After losing Patterson, I missed out on Goodwin, although the trade market got me Ordonez back...
