Frasor Renewed For Another Season

Truth be told, Frasier was one of my least favourite television shows of the 90’s. It was a little too pretentious for my taste, and instead I chose to watch quality programming like Full House and Family Matters during my formative years.

While I wasn’t a fan of Frasier, I certainly do enjoy Frasor. Jason Frasor, that is. So I was elated to see that Frasor accepted arbitration and he’s officially been picked up for another season by the Toronto Blue Jays.

I know some people are a little disappointed Jason Frasor didn’t decline arbitration and the Blue Jays missed out on a couple of draft picks. Ultimately, that decision was in the hands of Jason and his agent and there was nothing Toronto could do about it.


And let’s not bellyache about how Jason Frasor is going to fetch $3-4 million dollars in arbitration. Trust me, with so many question marks in the Blue Jays bullpen, it’s money well spent.

With Scott Downs and Kevin Gregg both out the door, Toronto needed to hang onto Frasor to provide that much very much needed stability in the ‘pen.

So let’s all cheers to another year of The Sausage King, Jason Frasor!

    Not to critique your photoshopping, because it is fantastic, but, I just noticed in your picture, that you could have extended the space needle and made it look like the CN. You could have then drawn a bubble for the dome and had the Toronto skyline. EPIC!

    5th Starter, damn that's a good idea! I'll have to remember that for next time.

    Baby I hear the blues a calling …

    Although the rumour that's circulating is that Frasor will be traded before arbitration. We shall see what AA has in mind but worst case scenario it's good to have someone steady on the very much changing bullpen.

    Mattt, that's an interesting scenario and I can definitely see AA doing that. The teams weary to sign Frasor because they didn't want to give up the draft pick would likely be more willing to pull of a trade with the Blue Jays.

    I dunno, I think Frasor is more of a Niles…

    I love Frasier. Another masterful photoshop. I salute you, Ian.

    And may the Sausage King rule the Blue Jays' bullpen FOREVER.

    Xave, now that you mention it … you kinda does remind me more of Niles. Must be the height thing.

    Nav, I wonder if they'll give him the ball with the closer role at the start of the season. Methinks Farrell would give him more rope than Cito did at the start of the year.
