Who are my top 5 favorite baseball players?

1. Roberto Alomar. Alomar is the best second basemen that I’ve ever seen for the Blue Jays, as he was outstanding offensively and defensively. Alomar’s game tying home run in the ninth inning against Dennis Eckersley in game four of the 1992 American League Championship Series was one of the most exciting plays in Blue Jays history.

2. Roy Halladay. From 2002 to 2009, Halladay was consistently the best starting pitcher for the Blue Jays. It was exciting to see Halladay win his first Cy Young award in 2003.

3. Edwin Encarnacion. When the Blue Jays acquired Encarnacion in 2009, he was a mediocre player for the Cincinnati Reds. Encarnacion had an amazing season in 2012 when he hit 42 home runs and 110 runs batted in.

4. Pat Hentgen. From 1993 to 1997, Hentgen was consistently the best starting pitcher for the Blue Jays. It was awesome to see Hentgen win the Cy Young award in 1996.

5. Jose Bautista. When the Blue Jays acquired Bautista in 2008, he was a journeyman player. It was incredible to watch Bautista hit 54 home runs and 124 runs batted in during the 2010 season. In 2015, Bautista’s home run in game 5 of the American League Division Series against the Rangers was outstanding. Bautista’s bat flip after the home run was memorable.
