Who's in charge in Toronto?

Sep 11, 2009, 10:58 AM EDT

I guess J.P. Ricciardi still is, but he has apparently farmed out the communications function to Cito Gaston:

When asked earlier this week about his plans for next season, Jays catcher and soon-to-be free agent Rod Barajas said he didn’t have any yet, but that he would love to return to Toronto . . . He said he hadn’t talked to anyone from the team about returning in 2010 but expected those discussions to begin next month.

That’s why it jarred him yesterday morning to learn that manager Cito Gaston didn’t think the team had plans to bring him back. “I don’t think anybody (in the organization) has tried to sign him,” Gaston said. “He’s going to be out there (on the free-agent market).”

Not suprisingly, Barajas isn’t very pleased to hear of the Jays’ plans for him this way.

I wouldn’t be shocked to see both Ricciardi and Gaston fired after the season.  Wouldn’t it be cool if they were informed of this by Rod Barajas?

    I have to say that I was quite jarred myself when that article ended with the completely unrelated yet hysterically funny bit about the streaker who ran onto Citi Field “naked except for a stuffed monkey tied around his waist”, and is now banned for life.
    As for Gaston, I guess the exchange rate applies to communications as well as currency, at least as far as the Blue Jays are concerned…

    Yes, Craig, it would indeed be cool…

    I would propose managing content merchandising, let me explicate. You can get a video professionally created for approximately $47.00 97.00 (30-60 seconds) rendering your splendid desk drawer slide. You can even demonstrate how sweet it is to destruct your challengers and blast it around over 100 internet video sites for as little as $5.00 per site to be done manualy!You can get keyword research done for you professionally, naming the keyword words that will get you a decent amount of search volum, yes with smaller competing pages. Thank you for this article! I’ve just learned a easily marvelous news blog about seo Essay it!
