Tigers’ lack of effort is more than suspicious - 09/06/01

The author contends the Tiger players are not trying and that this will enhance their chances of getting out Motown. I’d comment but it is hard to type while shaking my head at this notion.

JoelShoe, the irony is that Falls wrote that exact column earlier this year, and also double counted (ie counting Fryman and Randa, Gonzalez and Catalanotto and Kapler, etc).

It also looks like a pretty unimoressive team to me; certainly worse than the list you could make for a lot of teams.

I may have missed a few guys - but here is my 25-man roster of ex-Blue Jays:

All of these guys have appeared in at least one game this year.

Darren...

You've included Schilling, Bagwell, Armas and Eckstein, who were in the Red Sox system, but never played for them. I'm not suggesting that this is wrong per se, but it's a little different than the 25-man roster I produced. It does show that the Sox have traded away better minor league players than the Blue Jays.

Andre....

Of course it is the Expos. I believe that your rotation is better than the ex-Jays, but the ex-Jays offense would be more productive. Overall probably pretty even.

It's fun to make up ex-teams. But we should also note that most veterans have been with 2 or 3 teams previous to their current club so almost every ex-team will be a strong team. Players like Clemens, Schilling, Rickey Henderson, Robbie Alomar etc can be used by more than one team.
