This years Toronto Blue Jays get to enjoy October baseball for the first time since 1993.  There have been many great Blue Jays over the years but through our postseason drought we have had plenty of teams that never made it to the promise land.  Since 1993 we have had a plethora of talented teams that were for whatever reason they were stuck in neutral and never went full throttle to ride into the sunset.  We are going to take a look at the talented Blue Jays players that never made the playoffs wearing a Blue Jays uniform.

Ground Rules for this list

  • The Blue Jays player must have played for the Toronto Blue Jays between years 1994 and 2014.
  • The list is comprised from the Blue Jays all time players and compared using career WAR with the Blue Jays (just chill saber metric people it is a valid way to measure players from generation to generation)
  • Players are allowed to make this list if they made it to the post season on other teams in their careers.
  • Must have spent at least 3 years in a Blue Jays uniform to be considered (really just didn’t want to write about the two years we had Roger Clemens.  I try to forget he was ever a Blue Jay)
