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!
