    This is an astute observation. Perhaps they were nice people to deal with...they may also have been incompetent. Sometimes people entrenched in their jobs for decades get jaded. These types of moves are inevitable. Once Beeston retired the gravy train was over. I hope they land on their feet with good jobs.
    Looking forward to Tuesday March 1st, 2018 > Blue Jays @ Phillies 1:05pm, Clearwater FLA >>Grapefruit League begins.

    That probably means they leaked information easily or bought steaks. Pleasing media as a PR person probably means you are bad at your job.

    Meh lots of media members said they were very professional, not just the Toronto writers. If you're talking leaks as in trades etc.. that's from inside the baseball ops dept. Shi is really the only one who breaks any stories.

    John Lott had a good article on the Athletic about the changes. Interesting to see if they fill the vacancies with Canadians.

    I wonder how much they pay their interns. With all of the requirements they are listing looks like they are trying to hire some pretty smart people.

    They probably don't pay them much, if anything, at all. At least they didn't when I tried to get one 6 years ago.

    So just like every other organization that likes to abuse the internship program as a disguise for slave labour. Got it.

    Shit, it's opinions like this that keeps me as a so-called political centrist when I aim for a Franco-level of fascism

    So I am reading the sun and there are rumours that Shapiro is going to hire Farrell for some type of management position.

    He can manage fan outrage by dressing up in a clown outfit and sitting in a dunk tank.

    They worked together in Cleveland when Shapiro was GM. I knew those rumors would start.

    I do not want Crafty Farrell anywhere near this team. They can stick him in the janitor's closet with Cito.

    Hard to imagine there being any truth to that.

    Farrell bailed on the organization for a lateral move! He's a TRADER

    He won a world series. It wasn't really lateral. Not all managerial positions are created equal. With greater resources comes a greater chance for success

    It's still a giant dick move to say you'd rather be managing somewhere else while you're under contract with a team to be their manager.
