Rebuilt Blue Jays ready for resurgence

Back on that October night in 1993 when Joe Carter launched his home run off Mitch Williams that won the World Series, Toronto was on top of the baseball world.

Bill Mueller, Brad Radke, Javy Lopez, and Eric Young Received HOF Votes, So What?

Like the swallows of Capistrano, you can reliably predict that each year some thoroughly undeserving player will receive a Hall of Fame vote(s).

Q&A: Pat Hentgen

Pat Hentgen had a lot of success against American League hitters in the 1990s, but he couldn’t solve Cecil. The Blue Jays right-hander had 19- and 20-win seasons, earned three All-Star berths, and won a Cy Young award. Against Cecil Fielder, he was a replacement-level stiff.
