    Too bad they couldnt put better teams together when he was here. IIRC he was more than 50% of the teams payroll back when that brewer owned the team.

    Good for Carlos. He deserves it. One of the alltime great Jays.

    I will say that Delgado definitely deserves to be there. He is the ultimate Jay along with others there already. But I find it hard to believe players like Jimmy Key, Tom Henke, or even Devon White are not there. Key and Henke for longevity and roles in World Series. Not to mention all time saves leader in history of the Jays. Key was a key member in the rebuild that got us to WS and a key contributor for years. As for Devon White, there is no world series without him sorry. His defense and probably the best lead off hitter in history of the Jays.

    Those 3 need to be there one day. But Delgado definitely deserves to be amongst the elite in Jays history.

    Devo was a great fielder but his bat was just so-so.

    quite rightly!

    come to think of it, his career path has been a mirror image of reyes'. several years with jays- one pivot year with marlins - mets.

    / does halladay deserve it? ,,my gut check says yes.

    Obviously doc deserves it but i dont think you can put him up there until he reitres.

    Carlos was my favourite jay of all time, until doc showed up. his emergence and his prime coincided with when i started watching baseball in 1995. I remember you could count on him for 40 hrs and 100 rbis every year.

    Love Carlos Delgado, one of my favourite jays of all time. He definitely deserves to get honored.

    Regarding Halladay, he easily deserves it. Best Jays pitcher by a mile (when speaking of longevity, performance, and peak). Furthermore, he is the greatest player produced by this organization
