Once the best pitcher in the NL, if not all of baseball. Sad that his arm fell off the way it did.

I'm sad he never got that ring. Always got excited to watch him pitch live.

Best pitcher in Blue Jays history, and a joy to watch on the mound every five days. He was a close to automatic as can be. Too bad that most of his prime was in that period between Delgado and Bautista's best spells in the Toronto lineup or else the Jays could've had something special.



"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

Oddly enough, I hate this trade. I like Swisher well enough. High OBP, some power, but I think he's more the 20-23 HR guy he's been in 2005 and 2007 than the 30+ HR guy from 2006. However, we just killed our farm system.
