J.P. Ricciardi may be coming to a TV near you

Jan 13, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

Former Blue Jays’ GM J.P. Ricciardi never really got the hang of the public relations aspects of being a general manager. He’d rip players in the media.  He’s famous for lying about things too, once having said, after being caught lying about B.J. Ryan’s injury, “they’re not lies if we know the truth.”  Simply put, a modern GM just really can’t be seen shooting off at the mouth like that.

His weaknesses may soon turn into strengths, however, as the broadcasting talent agency IF Management has announced that they’ve signed Ricciardi to a representation deal and will presumably be shopping his services to a cable network or talk radio station near you.  If that works out for him he’ll get paid for shooting his mouth off.

Everyone’s just gotta find their niche, man.

    He’s on the Steve Phillips path to success. He’ll be boning an intern before we know it.

    or he will get BONED by a intern, you never know.

    Oh boy, let’s see if we can guess which network would be hottest to hire a pathological liar as a pundit and broadcaster. Here’s a hint: the French for it is “reynard” and in Spanish it’s “zorro.” Too bad there’s no “comadreja” network, isn’t it?

    Hi and welcome to the JP Ricciardi show, our first guest via teleconference: Adam Dunn ladies and gentlemen, Adam Dunn.

    This is Adam Dunn right, not Ashton Kutcher?

  6. Moses Green - Jan 13, 2010 at 2:11 PM

    Adam Dunn is rich, he should do a heel turn and show up wherever JP Ricciardi ends up broadcasting. Wait, it can’t be, they’re playing Adam Dunn’s music! And there he is, that big homerun crushing donkey is here, and he looks pissed!!

    Stay tuned. Following Adam Dunn, we’re going to have Mike Tyson here to explain the tushy-biting scene from Where’s Poppa, and Tonya Harding to respond to allegations that she repeatedly bounced A-Rod off the ceiling during his years in Seattle. But first, a word from our sponsor – Halliburton.
