Ken Rosenthal reports that the Toronto Blue Jays have spoken to Indians president Mark Shapiro about replacing outgoing president/CEO Paul Beeston.

As Rosenthal notes, the Jays have a bigger payroll than Cleveland and seem poised for more consistent contention in the coming years. From the Jays’ perspective, Shapiro has handled the baseball and business side of things for years now and has particular experience dealing with stadium renovations and the like which is something the Jays are looking at in the near future.

Seems like a good match.
