If you were to dream up a great baseball player, you'd probably stop yourself short of conjuring up Robbie Alomar, if only because such a combination of talents seems so unlikely.
Alomar was more than a gifted player. He was one who worked hard to continue to develop facets of his game throughout his career, and we were fortunate to see him become as close to a complete player as one could imagine while wearing the old double-blue of the Blue Jays.
We didn't have much doubt that this would come to pass this year, and it is gratifying to see him get 90% of the ballot. (And a little bitter part of us says "one year too late!", but we're not really going to give in to that sentiment, are we?)
This is a very fine day for Blue Jays fans. We hope you're enjoying it as much as we are right now.
