Let's begin with a Blue Jays Trivia Question, the answer to which seems unlikely to change in 2006.

Toronto has played 41 post-season games in their history. Who is the only Blue Jay to pitch a Complete Game in the post-season?

Congratulations to former Jay Carlos Delgado, who hit his 400th career home run yesterday. I may be missing someone, but I believe only four men who have ever played with the Jays for any amount of time have reached that particular milestone -- Fred McGriff (493), Dave Winfield (465), Jose Canseco (462) and now Delgado. Joe Carter hit 396.

Though four of those five men have earned a place in Blue Jay lore -- one of them partly for being traded for one of the others -- is it safe to assume that Delgado will be the first Jay (of any length of service) to reach the once-magical 500 mark? How many will he end up with? Will he wear a Jay or "NYM" into Cooperstown? And are any other former Jays on the radar to reach the 400 and then 500 milestones?

Itís the fourth annual fielding survey.  Jays fans are always near the top in turnout, and that's in no small part to readers from this site.   Who else except a Jays fan could have told the world about Orlando Hudson last year?

Please take a few moments, and participate once more!

The Good Doctor teased the fans a little yesterday, but just as we were starting to consider the possibilities... there weren't any.

You know you do it already in your head ... even as you groan at the nicknames ESPN's Chris Berman slaps on players from Cy Young to Michael Young, you think you could do better. Maybe even at a Hall of Fame level.

Okay, then, here's a complete list of Cooperstown inductees. Can you do better than a pedestrian Eddie "Walk the" Plank? Or an erudite Hank Aaron "on the side of caution"? Eddie "Tom" Collins is too easy, Bill "I'm feeling kind of ver" Klem"ft" is too much of a reach. Tris Speaker "of the House"? Joe Tinker "Bell" or Mel "There" Ott "to be a Law"?

You get the idea. Who's up next?

Here is yet another look at your Toronto Blue Jays, plus maybe a random thought or two. Enjoy and/or scroll past!

That was Toronto's longest losing streak since Buck Martinez was the manager. Not even the Season From Hell provided this particular form of torment...

I've been thinking about the New York Yankees and their recent player acquisitions. Yes, I know - it's bad for my digestion or my blood pressure or my choler or something. But this has all gone on far enough. Something has to change.
