Hall of Fame Poll: Omar Vizquel

Hall of Fame Poll: Omar Vizquel

Would you vote Omar Vizquel into the Baseball Hall of Fame? So we come to a former Blue Jays player again, Omar Viszquel. It is his second time on the ballot. He was on 37.0% of ballots last year. I really don’t understand why. He was good defensively, but not to that degree, at least to me. Omar played his last MLB season for us. He was 45, in 2012, and he played 60 games in Blue Jays colors, hitting .235/.265/.281 in 163 PA. I have no idea what Alex was thinking in signing him. Omar played 24 seasons in the MLB. He came up with the Mariners, and played 6 seasons with them, then 11...

Russell Martin’s place in Blue Jays history

Russell Martin’s place in Blue Jays history

Where he stacks up among other franchise stalwarts It’s been just under a week since the page was further turned on the ALCS years of 2015-16 with the trade of Russell Martin. We’ve looked at some of the indelible moments in which he was a part, so I want to take a chance to take a high level view of his place in franchise history. Having “only” four seasons with the Blue Jays with the last two abbreviated (2018 artificially so) limits his counting totals, especially as catcher max out around 120 games started in the first place. Martin’s 1759 plate appearances rank just 47th in...
