Paul Beeston has been named the full-time President and CEO of the Toronto Blue Jays. Praise be unto the Beest.
Interesting tidbits about Paul Beeston: he spent the last year looking for a successor, which is why the Jays did nothing but shed salary under his stewardship. He righted the ticketing ship while interviewing candidates from all over North America and anointing the sores on the feet of Toronto's street urchins.
Beeston is most famous of lording over the Toronto Blue Jays during the glory years, deftly moving massive contracts around, hiring 3 month mercenaries and getting out while the getting was good.
Also interesting: any good we see on the field or in the offices over the next 2 years will be do to Beeston's benevolent hand. All bad decisions or negativity are due exclusively to JP's poisonous influence.
New GM Alex Anthopolous and Beeston look forward to many long nights at the office (IN TORONTO MOST IMPORTANTLY), expressing fondness for David Suzuki, laughing at Red Green, eating ketchup chips, and drinking Moosehead while popping Tylenol 222s for fun. Later they'll make some baseball decisions, but not before a rousing game of Sorry!
