After eight seasons at the helm of the Blue Jays, Toronto general manager J.P. Ricciardi was fired on Saturday morning. The decision was announced in a press release.
"This was a tough decision and a difficult one for me personally as I have enjoyed J.P.'s friendship and his perspective on the game," said Paul Beeston, acting President, and CEO. "J.P. has put an incredible amount of effort into improving the team and he has brought along a number of great young players. However, I feel that it is time for a change and accordingly we have decided to move on."
Blue Jays assistant general manager Alex Anthopoulos has been promoted to the position of interim G.M. The Blue Jays were 642-651 under Ricciardi, finishing as high as second place in the American League East in 2006 and finishing in third place -- behind the Yankees and Red Sox -- on four separate occasions.
