4th Blue Jay Enters Hall of Fame

bluejaysA fourth Blue Jay has been elected into the Hall of Fame. Joining Phil Niekro, Dave Winfield and Paul Molitor is Ricky Henderson who dropped by for a cup of coffee and a World Series victory back in '93.

I remember Ricky was having a great season in '93 when we acquired him, but then he went into a slump. His presence probably slowed as down, as it disrupted WAMCO. We became HAMCOW, as I recall.

Remember though, it was Rickey Henderson who led off that ninth inning with a walk before Devon White flew out to left and Paul Molitor rapped out his third hit of the game. Then, along came Joe.

Just because they played for the Jays for about 2 minutes doesn't warrant a headline like..."4th Blue Jay Enters Hall of Fame".

None of those guys was a real Blue Jay.

Actually David, all four were real Blue Jays. It's a piece of trivia, not a suggestion that Ricky Henderson was akin to Tony Fernandez.

But if Dave Parker gets in, it'll make five!

Ricky Henderson was a part of the Jays PR agenda and team. A good one IMO. Hated him when he was the opposition though.

Heck, if Jim Rice can get in, let's see Johnny O in there!

You're welcome for the ring Ricky...ugh
So many real Jays that desrve to go into the Hall that would actually go in as a Jay. I think Tony should be there!
And how long do we have to wait for Tom Cheek to get that Frick award!?

The only guy to go in as a Blue Jay will be Robbie Alomar.

I concur with Elvis, unless Doc has a nice, long career.

What about Buck? Didn't he move to the broadcast booth still a Jay?

What about Buck? Buck was a handy backup to Ernie, but I have as good a chance of making the hall of fame.
