Richard Griffin says J.P Ricciardi done as Blue Jays General Manager

Lots of pundits have alluded to it. None have been so bold as to say it is a done deal. Richard Griffin in his weekly reply to fan letters boldly states that J.P Ricciardi is done as the GM of the Blue Jays.

Ricciardi has wasted a full season of our lives by convincing Ted Rogers and Paul Godfrey (and I must admit myself) that the ’07 team was good enough to come back as a unit and if healthy compete for a wild-card. For that broken promise alone, Ricciardi will be gone at the end of the year.

The Jays can contend next season, but only with a change at GM.

We all know that Griffin has never been a huge fan of J.P. However to go this far and say its a done deal is quite a prediction. Lots of things can happen between now and the end of the season. Hey they could sweep a series or two (sorry, couldn’t resist)

Anyways, it will be interesting to watch this dynamic the rest of the season for sure.
