Their All Star selections in '85:

Steve Garvey
Rich "Goose" Gossage
Tony Gwynn
LaMarr Hoyt
Terry Kennedy
Graig Nettles
Garry Templeton

Could be worse, My Tigers won the series in 84' and finished 84-77.

They had 6 All-stars in 85' -
Lou Whitaker
Lance Parrish (replaced by Fisk for injury)
Willie Hernandez
Jack Morris
Dan Petry
Alan Trammell

Also, Darrell Evans finished 14th in AL All Star voting, Kirk Gibson 18th.

Yeah, that was a let down year.

I would guess someone from the expansion teams like Dave Stieb, or whoever they picked from those awful Mariners teams.

EDIT: Looks like 4 out of 7 of his appearances he was the Blue Jays only rep. Damaso Garcia (really?) was on two of the teams Stieb was on and Kelly Gruber was on one.
Great experience buying from edjs and mybuddyinc. Check out my ebay store, weird, eclectic, accurate, and reasonable! Also check out
