You have to love the timing of this for Rogers...immediately after the Cito mutiny story breaks out.

Anyway, this was a move that probably had to be made to appease the fanbase, as unfair as it was. Outside of his complete inability to deal with media, I've never had much of a problem with JP's work. For the most part, all of his moves had logic behind them and improved the baseball team. You can't say that about every GM.

A couple of things...

#1. Why did they wait this long? Was it simply because this cheap organization didn't want to pay somebody else to do his job for the last month?

#2. Why is Tony LaCava not the GM right now?

#3. Why is Cito Gaston not going out the door with him? Well...I kind of know the answer to that one...it's PR.


Nothing will change for the Blue Jays organization until they commit themselves to a plan and find a new president. That hasn't happened yet.

There are a number of Jays fans that frequent this website that I know of. Outside of them, though, I don't know why anybody would. This was inevitable.

Maybe we'll find that out when JP gets the Padres job!
