Last week Toronto got the unfortunate news that Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos will not be returning with the club for the 2016 season. The Blue Jays now have Tony LaCava as their interim GM, but what’s next for Alex? Where will he go? There are plenty of teams that would be lucky to have him join their squad but Toronto nacho house Sneaky Dee’s has sent out a press release offering Alex Anthopoulos the GM position at their establishment.
Read the press release below:
toronto restaurant and concert venue Sneaky Dee’s is pleased to offer Alex Anthopoulos, former General Manger of the Toronto Blue Jays, the coveted General Manager position at the local establishment. A family-run business for over 28 years, Anthopoulos would be only the third GM in the College and Bathurst’s staple illustrious history. Current GM, George Diamantouros is expected to be named President later this week.
Anthopoulos would be responsible for day-to-day management, and, Diamantouros would oversee business operations. Though Diamantouros will take an active involvement in building the future of the restaurant, Anthopoulos will have final say in all major day-to-day decisions including menu, venue booking, and personnel. Anthopoulos will also have full control over the restaurant’s recreational softball team roster, which went 6-4 in the recreational league during the 2015 season. Sneaky Dee’s has offered to match the term Anthopoulos seeks. Financial details are yet to be discussed.
“Alex is one of the brightest young minds in the business industry,” says current GM George Diamantouros, “We believe in the strong foundation that has been built over the last 28 years, and are ready to take this business to the next level. With Alex taking the reigns, we will be ready to take the next step”.
Anthopoulos, the next move is yours.
