When in doubt, hire yourself as President
It took almost an entire year of recruiting, but finally there is a President and CEO of the Toronto Blue Jays.
With the official announcement that Paul Beeston will in fact be the new President and CEO of the team, the good news is that Rogers won’t have to change the name plate on the President’s desk and send out that pesky “so and so is no longer with the company” email.
The bad news (and forgive me for the blatant disregard for grammar) … Cito ain’t going nowhere. Beeston staying on as President basically just bought Cito another year as manager of this team and possibly even more than that, because there is no way in hell that Beeston lets Cito go under his watch.
So it turns out that the Blue Jays will not be wiping the slate clean, and instead it seems like J.P. Ricciardi was the only bad seed in the whole bunch. At least now it doesn’t seem like the team is in limbo anymore, and the Toronto Blue Jays can finally move forward and start over with the next “five-year plan”.
