The four horsemen of the Toronto Blue Jays

Some of you might take issue with who comprises the Blue Jays' "four horsemen." For instance, Edwin Encarnacion is not on this list. How can that be? He hit 36 home runs with 104 RBI, ranking among the AL's top five hitters with a .904 OPS. All right, but Toronto still won only 74 games and finished last in the AL East despite Encarnacion's production. So will...
