Happy Birthday Doyle Alexander

New, comment

It is Doyle Alexander's 59th birthday today. Doyle pitched for us from the middle of the 1983 season until the middle of the 1986 season when we traded him to Atlanta for Duane Ward. Atlanta made a better deal trading him a year later to Detroit for John Smoltz  He won 17 games for us in 1984 and 85 and is number 37 on our list of top 50 Jays.

Doyle bounced around the league pitching for 8 different times over a 19 year career and won 194 games. He wasn't exactly the friendliest player in the ever to play the game. He never seemed happy.

Anyway, Happy Birthday Doyle. Hope life is good.
