That's the scary thought, I'm thinking Ricciardi could bolt... :-o

2006 and beyond is all Blue Jays... B-)

Nothing against JP, but i got to ask all, why is Depodesta the bad GM, and no one ever has said a word about JP, who like Paul, is a numbers guy.

JP's record

78-84
86-76
67-94
80-82

That's much worse then DePodestas record in LA. Why does everyone hate Paul, yet i don't recall ever seeing a bad word about JP anywhere ever.

Well, don't the Dodgers have much more to work with than the Jays, as well as having much higher expectations?

And the fact that the Red Sox and Yankees aren't in the Dodgers division every season.

JP record

311-336

Shouldn't Toronto have bigger expectations then being .480 the last 4 years?

Wasn't it the Padre fans in the Rivera/Hoffman thread who claimed how much tougher Hoffman had it in the NL West?

Give him Billy Beane money that u were about to shell out for him a couple of yrs ago. This is truly disgraceful. Theo, the best of luck, Lucchino should be gone not u. Im still in shock.


It's not the money. He was reported as having agreed to the money. It's the constant leaks he's tired of.

It's Larry Lucchino writing Shaughnessy's columns for him. There's no way Theo looks like the bad guy in this.
