Blue Jays sign manager John Schneider to three-year deal following impressive turnaround

The Toronto Blue Jays announced on their official Twitter account on Friday morning that interim manager John Schneider has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with a club option for a fourth year. In other words, Schneider is no longer the “interim” anything, but, rather, the full-time manager of the Blue Jays.

Schneider, 42, was elevated to the managerial position in mid-July, when the Blue Jays decided to fire Charlie Montoyo. The Blue Jays had disappointed to that part of the year, amassing a 46-42 record under Montoyo. Schneider, who was in the midst of his first season as Toronto’s bench coach, then led the Blue Jays to a 46-28 record the rest of the way, as well as a playoff berth.

The Blue Jays would be swept by the Seattle Mariners in the American League Wild Card Series, but Toronto’s front office nevertheless decided Schenider was the best choice to lead their team heading forward.

I think the lack of comments is perfect for this news. Even myself, an avid Blue Jay fan, has "no comment". Schneider pulled an "1989 Cito Gaston", which while great, is not a predictor of the future.
