I can’t blame Jays CEO Paul Beeston for doing his best to shine up the turd of a season his club has turned in so far this year, nor would I ever expect him to publicly regret the team’s big off-season wheelings and/or dealings– which is exactly what he did and didn’t do on an appearance this morning on Jeff Blair’s show on the Fan 590.
Slightly less expected– I say slightly (it is Beeston, after all)– was him laying down the pointless crazysauce quote of the year. Here it is, as reported by Ben Nicholson-Smith over at Sportsnet.
Beeston says it’s just a matter of time before the Blue Jays’ plan works and the losses turn to wins.
“If we don’t win this year, we win next year,” Beeston said. “ If we don’t win next year, we win the year after.”
No, really. He said that. Though… if the photo above, which comes by way of the St. Catharines Standard, gives us any kind of window into his mindset, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised by the comment, or… y’know… if we one day hear that he spends most of his free time in a dirt floor basement ravenously gnawing on bugs and chicken bones.
And the picture isn’t even the crazies thing about that article! Two comments in– on a piece about baseball man Paul Beeston and his Welland, Ontario, roots– reader “Ryan” hits us with this non sequitur of a full-on fucking cranial meltdown:
well ive lived here for a year now and i think it sucks there is to many old people that cant drive and the speed limit is like 40 again the older people do 30 and for some reason the people driving stop at every train track in the city and the 406 all you have to do is go to the mall get a blue light put it on your hood and you can drive on the schoulder cross yellow lines and ya those stupid train tracks that make all the buses stop is dumb the bus is empty the cab behind him is driving 5 kids to school but he goes right through the lights school guards that can barley make it across the road are being trusted to help the kids and older people crossing the street well there my opinion on welland after 1 yr
Maybe check your water supply, St. Catharines. I’m sure that’s a real pain in the ass of a task, but if it’s any consolation, you’ll at least have some winning baseball to watch when you’re done. Y’know, one of these years. Paul Beeston said so!
