The Toronto Blue Jays started play 40 years ago on April 7, 1977. This year we’re out to tell stories about some of the team’s greatest players and rank the 40 best in franchise history.

Generated by more than 20 baseball experts and insiders, Sportsnet’s list will be revealed starting August 25 and 26, and culminating in an hour-long TV special, 40 in 40: Greatest Blue Jays, on August 27.

In the meantime, we want you to rank your own. Today we’re launching our drag-and-drop ranking tool. Choose your top 40 from the 60-player short list, hit submit to contribute to the user-generated consensus ranking, and then share your list via email or social media.

Also today, check out Kristina Rutherford’s long-form interview with Kelly Gruber, who talked Pablo Escobar, the ’92 World Series and growing back his famous flow.
