Also, unrelated, we get this from We've Got Heart:
Marty York of Metro News in Canada reports that:I'd mostly ignored the Stan rumors, but so far this off-season the team is acting like Kasten and the Plan are out and Bowden's back in charge, unchecked by the adult supervision he's had since Stan came in. All the talk of signing Tex, Burnett, Dunn... this is classic Bowden attention-seeking and runs directly contrary to the strategy of patient player development that Stan's preached from the start. If that's what's happening, then that means the the suffering of the last two years has been mostly pointless, as all the patient stockpiling of 19-22 year-old talent that would get good together and help us win in 2011 will be quickly dismantled by Bowden.
Stan Kasten, who also has presided over the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Thrashers, is atop the list to replace the Jays’ interim prez, Paul Beeston. Sources spotted Jays lawyer Gord Kirke meeting with Kasten in New Orleans on the weekend.
