New player program predictions

SDS

Ok so I love these player programs so let's take guess on who it will be

Things to keep in mind

  1. It's a All Star Legend
  2. Like will be an 88-89
  3. Only 1 of the player programs has been a card we have seen in previous games (Gibson)

My 5 guesses

  1. Don Mattingly
  2. Brett Boone - 91 All Star card from last year
  3. Richie Ashburn
  4. Jay Buhner
  5. Jaun Marichal

Hes been gone now for 2 years so likely wont see him again and likely the next big Jay's legend that will be added is Joey Bats in 2 years unless they somehow get Delgado's rights but dont think he is high on the list of priorities of players needed

Yup. Stieb is most likely done, and they never really utilized him. 91 All-Star was the best he got..

Jose Bautista technically never retired.. he may still be part of the PA...

And Delgado, Devon White or even Vernon Wells are all possible. Devon White would be cool because he could have great cards for 3 different teams (Angels, Jays, Marlins)

They can't figure out how to program his slider into the game.

Disgusting movement. Stieb was filthy. He's 1A/1B with Halladay as the greatest Jays pitcher

Clemens? He won 2 Cy Youngs in his 2 seasons there. Cant do much better than that.

2 seasons, as amazing as they were, isn't even close to enough to match 14 great seasons from Stieb or a decade of excellence from Doc..

Also he demand a trade out of Toronto which hurt the value and demand the trade be to New York a division rival so hurting the trade value even more. He did more to hurt the team then he did to help them and the Jays still drafted his son

And he gets on the radio up here in TO and talks about of much he loves the team and city dude is so full of BS. He is not even in the running for top 5 Jays pitchers of all times at best he is Top 5 best seasons in Jay's history that's all I'll give him

They released his son today!! Funny you mention that..

But that said, Roger was insane here. Triple crown. 20 bWAR in 2 years.. just insanity...

He is 7th in Jays history in bWAR
Behind Stieb, Halladay, Key, Hentgen, Clancy and Guzman. Ahead of David Wells..

When he was in Toronto, coincidentally, was also the time he allegedly started taking steroids. To prove Boston wrong that he wasn't washed up..

SDS

Wouldn’t be surprised at an AS Chris Davis again in one of the player programs. I know he was an 87 last year but they could easily just bump his overall up a couple points just to keep the trend

There are legitimate arguments that he is top 5 starting pitchers ever. He may be hated, and only pitched 2 seasons there, but he is undeniably the best pitcher to ever pitch for the Blue Jays.

Franchise greatest, or favorite, probably/obviously not.

Is he the greatest pitcher to ever put on a Jays uniform? Obviously yes. Clemens is top 5 all time pitcher ever...

By the way, I like Clemens. This has nothing to do with that..

But that wasn't what I was talking about. I said greatest blue jay pitcher. And 2 years of anyone won't get you there when Doc and Stieb exist

SDS

There’s already been a 89 Bichette leaked so I’ve been waiting for that to drop.

SDS

Most of the last few programs have been hitters so I'm guessing pitcher. I would love to see a Johan Santana program. Maybe Andy Pettit? If they want to go reliever maybe K-Rod or Papelbon?
