The Blue Jays are reportedly close to making one of the best free agent signings of the off-season.

No, I'm not taking about Billy Koch.

Grady Fuson, the scouting director vilified in Moneyball (with the likes of Jeremy Bonderman, Bobby Crosby, Dan Johnson, that 2001 draft doesn't look so bad anymore, does it?) and the recently departed assistant GM for the Rangers, is apparently coming north to help Ricciardi's front office.

Given the Riccardi's mixed success in acquiring MLB talent, this is clearly a good good move. (If only he could have done something about the money thrown at Corey Koskie.) Most importantly it finally gives the club a clear successor when J.P.'s contract expires after the 2006 season.

I'm very happy.
