A free agent, Frasor doesn’t figure to be in the Jays’ plans going forward and he was asked if he thought general manager Alex Anthopoulos needed to make major changes this off-season.
“I think he has to,” Frasor, who holds the Jays record for pitching appearances, replied. “I think he has to make some major decisions because this wasn’t a good mix this year. It didn’t work out obviously.”
What do you mean not a good mix?
“Too many young guys, too many young guys,” Frasor said. “We need some veteran leadership. How you go about finding it is tough to figure out, especially when you’re pulling in guys from other organizations and stuff.
“If I was back with the Blue Jays, I’d like there to be some older guys. Guys who carry themselves a little more professionally. It makes for a better team out there. The sloppiness off the field carries over to the field.”
...What the Jays don’t have on this team is a veteran everyday player who is willing to take on a vocal leadership role.
“I’ve only been in this clubhouse so I can’t speak for other teams, but we don’t have anyone like that in this clubhouse,” Lind said. “I think it’s one thing to be liked and another thing to be respected, and I think for a staff respect is more important than being liked. It’s all a learning process and we all learned a lot about who we are.”
