In recent years, there have been many players who have arrived in the big city of Toronto.  Some who have left with a passionate heart for Toronto sport fans , and others who are remembered with hate.  Playing in a City being surrounded By Chris Bosh, Dwayne De Rosario, Matt Stajan, this player hasn't been the most popular in recent years but the most successful.

 It would have to be the Pitcher of the Toronto Blue Jays R. HALLADAY.  He has to be best athlete but not the most popular.  As it was stated by J.P. Ricciardi( G.M of the Toronto) he is now on the brinks on being traded.  His career as a Toronto Blue Jay would have to be look as a memorable one.  With a career of 141 Wins, 68 losses with a ERA. of 3.47. 

This can be a major debate, in a lot of ways. With Jay's attendance always a low, but with Halladay pitching it raises , every time he steps on the mound.  With the Toronto Maple leafs, Toronto FC, Toronto Raptors all new look for this year the average sport fan would want to see those teams any time. An average sport fan doesn't really know Halladay or follow when he is on the mound with his success.   

In the city of Toronto, does being successful anymore mean anything to the fans or is it just what big names the city wants to see as an individual that become a failure in the years to come.
