Poll Time: Vote on the best Jays catcher

New, comments
PAT BORDERS BLUE JAY
He was one of the best.

Since I really don’t want to talk about how bad the team is playing, let’s do some polls.

Let’s vote on the best catcher in Jays history. There aren’t much for Hall of Fame candidates among the catchers in our franchise's past, some goodish catchers, but none that stand out all that much.

I only know of three of them being All-Stars, Russell Martin, in 2015, John Buck, in 2010 and Ernie Whitt, in 1985. I have a soft spot for Whitt, I loved his all out swing. Sometimes he finished his swing with his knee on the ground.

A separate question would be which was the best defensive catcher.
