Final Awards

Some of these don’t need their own full page so we’ll just run through them here:

Best Teacher: John Schneider

Whether you agree with his postseason decision-making or not, Schneider’s impact on the team was undeniable. After taking over more than midway through the season, he got the team back on track and won just as many games as Montoyo despite managing 14 less. Even if he’s not back for 2023, you have to respect what he did in 2022.

Most Forgettable: Sergio Romo

Hats off if you remembered he played for the Jays this season.

Most Memorable: Bo Bichette in September

When the team needed it most, Bo had one of the biggest months in Blue Jays history.

Weirdest Moment: Jackie Bradley Jr.

This isn’t just one moment, but a staple of the last almost decade of Boston Red Sox baseball being on the Blue Jays was so strange and it was almost impossible to get used to.

Most Likely To Be In A Trivia Question In The Future: Tim Mayza

If you let up Judge’s 61st home run you’ll probably be a trivia question at some point.

Best Walk-Up Song: Gosuke Katoh

Next. Blue Jays: Considering Bringing Back David Phelps. dark

I could really go on and on here and there are plenty of important players that I didn’t mention, but I’m sure they’ll all be discussed plenty throughout the rest of the offseason. No matter how heartbreaking the end of the 2022 campaign may have been, it’s been fun to give arbitrary high school yearbook awards to Major League Baseball players, even if most of those awards are made up, and I feel satisfied doing just that.
