Toronto Blue Jays:
Hello kind sir,
Let me first say, now is the time for the Toronto Blue Jays. With the Yankees aging and Red Sox having lots of question marks, we feel now is the time for us to make our run. Our president Mr. Paul Beeston had this to say about when the time was right to make these moves:
We feel, with the direction the division has taken, the available Free Agents, the depth of our farm system and the young talent we have on our roster, now is the time to get our payroll raised.
"With this city, with this country, with our market, we should be a city that can have $140 or $150MM in the way of salaries," team president Paul Beeston said at the State of the Franchise even in Toronto last night. "We should be able to support that and that's the direction that we're headed to."
We know our owners are ready and willing to spend the Billions that they have. Take a look at their information for 2010:
These are the richest owners in baseball, and in our market, with this team, now is the time to make a stand and bring winning baseball back to Toronto!
Revenue CAD$12.14 billion (2010)
Net income CAD$1.50 billion (2010)
Total assets CAD$17.03 billion (2010)
Total equity CAD$3.76 billion (2010)
We respectfully request our payroll to raise to 100 million dollars. We will make a statement to the league, our players and our amazing fans, that this team is willing to win once again.
