Who Would Have Won Between the 1993 Blue Jays or 1994 Expos?
Blue Jays: Rickey Henderson, Devon White, Joe Carter
In 1993 Henderson hit .215/.356/.319 with 35 hits and 22 stolen bases in 203 plate appearances. Henderson hit a combined .289 with 21 homers and 53 stolen bases between Oakland and Toronto.
Devo hit .273/.341/.438 with 163 hits, 15 home runs and 34 stolen bases in 668 plate appearances.
Carter who was the World Series hero hit .254/.312/.489 with 33 homers and 121 runs batted in over 669 plate appearances.
Expos: Moises Alou, Marquis Grissom, Larry Walker
In 1994 Alou hit .339/.397/.592 with 143 hits, 22 home runs and seven stolen bases in 471 plate appearances.
The speedy Grissom hit .288/.344/.427 with 137 hits including 11 homers and 36 stolen bases in 521 plate appearances.
Walker was pacing the Expos offence hitting .322/.394/.587 with 127 hits, 44 doubles, 19 homers, 86 runs batted in and 15 stolen bases in 452 plate appearances.
Designated Hitter/ Bench Player
Blue Jays: Paul Molitor
Expos: Lou Frazier
The Blue Jays may have an unfair advantage on this one seeing the National League does not employ a designated hitter.
In 1993 Molitor hit .332/.402/.509 with 211 hits, 22 homers, 111 runs batted in and 22 stolen bases in 725 plate appearances. Not bad numbers for a 36-year old, he would also finish second in MVP voting that season.
In 1994 Frazier saw action in 76 games off the bench for the Expos hitting .271/.358/.307 with 20 stolen bases in 24 attempts.
Advantage: Blue Jays
