Which number will the Toronto Blue Jays retire next?

#12 is going to be retired on July 31st, 2011.. Could there be more in the future?

#12 is going to be retired on July 31st, 2011.. Could there be more in the future?

Well, well… Robbie Alomar.. You are finally into the Hall Of Fame and everyone here in Toronto, Puerto Rico, and possibly the entire world is happy for you. You have done a great service to the MLB with your flashy glove, game changing at bats, and you speedy cleats and the Toronto Blue Jays will never forget the 2 World Series that you helped bring North of the Border.

As you may or may not know, the Toronto Blue Jays will be honouring this amazing baseball player, probably the greatest 2nd baseman to play the sport, by retiring his number 12 on July 31st, 2011. This will be the first time the Toronto Blue Jays will be retiring a number and it could not have gone to a better person than Roberto Alomar. I guess we now know why, Edwin Encarnacion had to change his number (He was wearing the number 12 last year).

Last night, while listening to the JaysTalk, a fan was commenting that he thought David Stieb’s #37 should have been the first number the Blue Jays should have retired? Really? Soooo… let the debate begin. The question now is.. Will the Blue Jays ever retire another number and if so, who and which number would it be? Let’s take a look at some possible candidates shall we.


Which number should the Toronto Blue Jays retire next?

#37 – David Andrew Stieb – SP/RP

Dave Stieb has the only Blue Jays no hitter and had a wicked slider. Maybe his number should have been retired first.

Dave Stieb has the only Blue Jays no hitter and had a wicked slider. Maybe his number should have been retired first?

He was probably the best pitcher in the Blue Jays franchise, until a man with the nickname “Doc” took that title. Dave Stieb will forever be remembered as a dominate pitcher with one of the most deadliest sliders in the game and the only no-hitter thrown by a Toronto Blue Jays player in franchise history. Stieb did a great service to this club. He came up in 1979 as a 21 year old rookie and didn’t really take off until the 1982 season when he went 17-14 in 38 starts with an impressive season high 19 complete games where 5 of them were shutouts. Stieb would continue his dominance up to 1990, until injuries starting to factor into his career eventually slowing him down and having him retire in 1993. I’m still glad he was able to stick with the team in 1992 to earn his one and only World Series ring. Eventually, the man would come back out of retirement 5 years removed from the game in 1998 to pitch for the Blue Jays for one more season. In the end, Stieb’s numbers were very impressive having 176 Wins, 1669 Ks, 103 Complete Game, 20 Shutouts, 3.44 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and of course the 1 no-hitter in Blue Jays history. He also still holds some Blue Jays records for Most Wins (175), Lowest ERA (3.42), Strikeouts (1658) and complete games (103). Very impressive. Stieb’s number could be next in line to have his number retired, but I’m not sure if he has done enough to convince the Toronto Blue Jays to retire his number #37. He was in the ballot for Hall Of Fame votes in 2004, but got eliminated that same year because he didn’t have 5% or more to carry on. Sadly, we may only see his number #37 up on the level of excellence.

#25 – Carlos Juan (Hernandez) Delgado – 1B

Carlos Delgado was in BEASTMODE when he was with the Blue Jays. Could he be the best hitter the Jays ever had?

Carlos Delgado was in BEASTMODE when he was with the Blue Jays. Could he be the best hitter the Jays ever had?

Probably the best power hitter the Toronto Blue Jays ever had, Carlos Delgado was an absolute BEAST! The power hitting lefty who also manned 1st base was originally suppose to play catcher, but that didn’t last long. Delgado made a brief stint in 1993, when yes, the Blue Jays were on their way to winning their 2nd World Series championship, but you didn’t see the power until 1996 where he actually got to play everyday. No one will doubt that Delgado was probably the best pure power hitter in the league at that time. Delgado may have never hit 50 home runs in one season during his career, but he had some beastly numbers that cannot be ignored. As a Blue Jay from 1993 to 2004, he would go on to hit .282/.392/.556 with 889 Runs, 1058 RBI and 336 Home runs. Those are some pretty impressive stats. It was too bad that this Toronto Blue Jays player wanted out of Toronto, because the Blue Jays just couldn’t afford him. Although I do not believe that Delgado is a Hall Of Famer purely based on his stats, he could be one of those guys that we could see his number retired along with number #12. He will for sure be next in line to be up on the level of excellence, but retired number… I think he has a better shot than Stieb.

#32 – Harry Leroy Halladay (Doc) – SP

Roy Halladay was probably the most dominate pitcher to wear a Toronto Blue Jays uniform

Roy Halladay will probably be the most dominate pitcher to wear a Toronto Blue Jays uniform.

Yes, Roy Halladay’s name is Harry. Halladay, not Holiday, is still pitching and I’m already considering his number 32 to be retired next to Alomar. What can you say about this horse? Halladay brought his “A” game every night he pitched. Roy may have not pitched in the glory years that Stieb had the luxury of doing, but this guy was the face of the franchise for almost a decade. Everyone knows what Halladay meant to the Blue Jays and it was very sad for us to see him go. I still have hopes that he will come back to Toronto to finish his career off and retire as a Blue Jay. If Delgado and Stieb’s numbers aren’t retired before his, I have a strong feeling that you will see that #32 up there with Alomar. Of course this guy is going to be there in the Level Of Excellence some day, but I think the real question is, how long it will take for his number to be retired? Only time will tell because he may pitch into his late 40s if he doesn’t slow down. As Brian Wilson says.. The man is a cyborg!

Lastly, honourable mentions have to go out to:

#19 – Jose Antonio Bautista – OF/3B/1B

The number everyone have fallen in love with. Number 19 could be legendary!

The number everyone have fallen in love with. Number 19 could be legendary!

The man, the legend, the beard… Need I say more? He may not have many years under his belt, but the man is a legend in Toronto… Level Of Excellence for sure, unless he leaves Toronto via Vince Carter style.

#1 – Octavio Antonio (Castro) Fernandez – SS

The Famous #1 was worn thrice by Tony Fernandez

The Famous #1 worn thrice by Tony Fernandez

Tony Fernandez was probably one of the more entertaining players in the 80 and 90s as he was an amazing Shortstop. He still holds a few Blue Jays records (Most games played with 1450, most hits with 1583, and most triples with 72). He was another one of those “face” players, but if he were to have been a Blue Jay longer, i think he’d get more consideration. Then again, if we don’t make that trade, there probably would be no world series.

#43 – Clarence Edwin Gaston – Manager

Cito rocked the stauch and brought two world series to Toronto. Maybe he deserves to have his number retired.

Cito rocked the stauch and brought two world series to Toronto. Maybe he deserves to have his number retired.

No one rocked the mustache better than Cito Gaston. Leading us to 2 World Series, Cito’s number could also be a retired number. Though he never played as a Blue Jay, we will always remember him as the man who lead our all-star team to victory. You never know, but he could be up there with Robbie one day.
