Canadians and Former Jays in MLB Post-Season

Blue JaysWhen choosing a rooting interest in baseball, once my Jays are out of the picture, I usually focus on teams with Canadians and former Jays. There are a handful of Canadians in the Major League Baseball playoffs this year, and a whole bunch of former Jays.

Canadians

  • Russell Martin - Dodgers
  • Rich Harden - Cubs
  • Ryan Dempster - Cubs
  • Jason Bay - Red Sox
  • Eric Gagne - Brewers
  • Matt Stairs - Phillies

Former Blue Jays

  • Casey Blake - Dodgers
  • Jeff Kent - Dodgers
  • Gabe Gross - Rays
  • Eric Hinske - Rays
  • Trever Miller - Rays
  • Ted Lilly - Cubs
  • Reed Johnson - Cubs
  • Matt Stairs - Phillies
  • Jayson Werth - Phillies
  • Dewayne Wise - White Sox
  • Justin Speier - Angels
  • Kevin Cash - Red Sox
  • Dave Bush - Brewers

I'm leaving Mike Timlin off the list of former Jays because Boston left him off the playoff roster for their first round playoff series against the Angels. I'd like to see Timlin added for the ALCS. He's the only active player to have played on four non-New York Yankees championship teams.

As for me, I'm rooting for Russell Martin's Dodgers.

C'mon Buffalo Boy, you're better than that. A 163 game regular season does not the playoffs make.

Im rooting for the Rays, I want to see Hinske win one, I thought he didn't get a fair shake here, they assumed he couldn't hit left handed pitching which, this year in Tampa he showed that maybe he was better than that.
