West Coast Jay fans are wishing him the very best. Adam is next.

I know there haven't been many Canadians that have played for the Jays through history, but to see it written down like that is kind of amazing.

Looking forward to relaxing on the balcony with a beer and watching Lawrie tonight.

Read the profile in the G&M today.
Sounds like a total dick (who can hit).
"One day, a Milwaukee minor-league instructor was giving Lawrie a talk about how minor-league players are nothing special until they reach the big leagues, when the prodigy turned to his coach, pointed at every teammate and said: ā€œIā€™m better than him, him, him, etc ā€¦ ā€

How about another new Jay, Mark Teahan?

And now Adam Loewen.

You should add Shawn Hill to the list. It wasn't a long tenure in a Jays uniform, but at least he was born in Canada, unlike Teahan.
