Blue Jay legend. Duane Ward.
Duane came to the Jays in 1986, straight up for Doyle Alexander. He was an enormous part of the World Series teams, and Duane literally left it all on the field to help the Jays win those 2 championships. After missing all of 1994 with injury, Duane made 4 terrible appearances in 1995 and never pitched in the majors again.
While Duane got light up a bit in the ALCS, in the WS he was 3-0, 2 Sv, with 1 BB and 13 K's in 8 IP.
Duane had some seriously nasty stuff, and there's no doubt that he's a Jays legend.
