This deal is an enormous step forward for the Toronto Blue Jays. This is big enough to make the Jays relevant in a way they haven’t been for two decades. This was what we’d spent all the time in between frothing at them about. Anthopoulos et al deserve our thanks for making this a baseball town again, rather than a hockey town with a baseball team, which is, let’s be honest, what it was.
But in so doing, Anthopoulos has put his career inside a performance vice, which began closing this morning. If the Jays do not win now, he will lose his position, and may never get another like it.
