Alex Anthopoulos reflects on time Blue Jays | MLB.com

On his reasons behind walking away at the end of 2015…
Anthopoulos: “I know a lot was made that I wasn’t as forthcoming, or maybe it should have been a little more specific, but I wanted to keep that more private overall ... I did my best to try to enjoy the playoffs. I really made a conscious effort to try to enjoy it. And until the decision is final, it’s not final.
“I would say through the end of the month of August, I expected to be here for five, 10, 20 years, whatever it was going to be, and then things rolled into September, and that’s probably the first time it entered my mind that it might not be back. But certainly the decision wasn’t done until the end.”
