Godfrey: J.P. Ricciardi Will Return


OK. This is the best quote I have seen in years:

“I know this will be received with mixed emotions, not only in the media but by the fans as well, but we believe that J.P. is still doing a wonderful job as general manager of the Blue Jays,” Godfrey said as the Blue Jays played the final home of the season, Ricciardi’s seventh at the helm of the club.”

Wholly shit is that awesome! Wouldn’t we all love to hear our boss say that about us, “We know you all think that this guy is a boob, but we still love him and he is coming back!” I mean nothing screams of confidence like that…. Speaking of boobs, whomever wrote the headline of the story in the post, is today’s boob of the day “Jays re-sign Ricciardi, Gaston” No jackass, they didn’t resign Ricciardi, they just didn’t fire him! You can see the full story here.


Like Matt Millen, and the cat (with nine lives) Blue Jays G.M. will return to lead the Blue Jays for another season. Despite years of mediocrity, he will be back for year 7 or is it 8 of his 5 year plan? According to Jeff Blair in the Globe, Godfrey himself is expected to announce he will not return for another season as early as Monday.

As I have said before, bring in a new President and all bets with J.P. are off… Lets see what happens. Discuss amongst yourself.
