    Wasn't it MLSE? That was quite a while back, though.

    There would be some big benefits to selling the team from the Blue Jays perspective. They could put the TV rights on the open market and get a pretty big chunk of $. Plus they could sell the naming rights to the stadium.

    I hope the new owner is hands off though and lets management do their job. Last thing we need is a Eugene Melnyk or Peter Angelos.

    Who can you sell the rights to? American advertisers don't give a shit about Canadian viewers. Leaving Bell and Rodgers to probably cheap out and split a TV package.

    Just read morrow got a 2/21mm deal. Amazing that guy came back like he has. Really happy for him. Always had the stuff. Injuries and command issues. He looked great last year. Good for him. Will always remember that ball bouncing just past Hill to lose his no hit bid. What a game he threw.
