A few notes:

  • Jesse Barfield had some great seasons for us.
  • I didn't think that Mondesi had any decent seasons with us, I guess I was wrong.
  • I don't remember Sam Ewing or Steve Bowling at all. 
  • The Moseby season was his rookie year, the Jays brought him up too young.
  • I suppose no one is surprised to Brad Wilkerson's name on the list.
