3) Paul Molitor - 211

Paul Molitor only played three season in Toronto, but Blue Jays fans still have a special place in their hearts for the man. Certainly he achieved a lot during his relatively short tenure in Southern Ontario.

Molitor's list of accomplishments included two All-Star selections and a Silver Slugger Award. Most importantly of course, was helping the Blue Jays win a second straight World Series.

Underlying the Hall of Famer's importance to the team, he was named MVP of the 1993 World Series. He hit two home runs and eight RBI during the six games versus the Phillies, on his way to a ridiculous .500/.571/1.000 slash line.

This topped off what was a remarkable season for Molitor and the Blue Jays. He was part of a lineup which struck fear into the opposition, featuring the likes of Olerud, Roberto Alomar and Joe Cater.

In respect of Molitor and Olerud, each brought out the best in the other during the 1993 season. As the year progressed, they were both in with a shot at 200 hits and their respective success pushed them both to achieve more.

For Molitor specifically, he started off the season slowly with 'only' 26 hits during April. However, he countered this with a 1993 single-month high of 43 in May, and he was off and running.

Helping the four-time Silver Slugger on his quest, was that he had already reached 200 hits twice in his magnificant 21-year Major League career. He would also go on to again achieve the feat in 1996 with a career-high 225 hits for the Twins.

Returning to 1993 though, Molitor reached the 200 plateau on September 22 in style, with three hits versus the Red Sox. He would go on to lead the Majors with 211 hits, and finish second in AL MVP voting behind Thomas.
