    One of the better defensive Shortstops of his time and imo- the greatest Blue-Jays Defensive SS of all time; and he wasn't too shabby with a bat either...

    Fernandez, who enjoyed four separate stints in Toronto, is the Blue Jays’ all-time leader in WAR (45.3), games played (2,158), hits (2,276) and triples (92). He also ranks among the franchise’s top five in batting average (.297), at-bats (5,335), plate appearances (5,900), runs scored (704), total bases (2,198), doubles (291) and stolen bases (172).

    It really is. There was a time when 57 years of age, (Tony's current age), seemed like eternity. But, 57 is still young imo-.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy either.
