  • Beaston back with Jays

    The Toronto Blue Jays and their owner, Rogers Communications, have called a news conference for 1 p.m. Tuesday where it is expected they will announce the return of former president Paul Beeston as interim CEO.

    Beeston, who served as president from 1989 to 1996, will be taking on the position until a fulltime replacement can be found. Paul Godfrey, who had held both president and CEO positions since 2000, announced Sept. 29 that he was stepping down once his contract expired at the end of this year.
    It seems like we are slowly getting back to those glory days. Just like Cito was in as our interim manager at the time, does anybody think Beaston will be staying for a couple years?

      i heard on the radio that this isn't going to be a short-term thing, they are going to take their time to find a new ceo. they speculated beeston may be around for 2-3 years.

        Keep in mind Cito Gaston in both stints was an interim manager at first. Make him President for Life.

          Just because these guys built a winner in the early 90's doesn't mean they can do it again. It doesn't mean they can't, and they do understand the special situations of a Canadian MLB team, but don't look back to the glory days so hard you miss the way baseball has changed since then.

            No one is expecting him to come in and make us a title contender over night. It took us a long time to build the team into a contender the first time, but this is a step in the right direction

              If it's true that Beaston will be around for a few years, I think this may spell the end of JP if the team underachieves again, no excuses. This way, Beaston will be Ted Roger's guy to find a replacement GM that he can trust.
