5 more years. He signed on through 2025.

Not a lot of details, but a tweet by Ben Nicholson-Smith states it. "Rogers, which also owns Sportsnet, first hired Shapiro late in 2015. Another five year deal would run through 2025."

Good move imo. Can't complain about it. The Jays have done well these past 5 years. Moving from a division title, their first playoff appearance in decades, to a wild card, to 3 years of rebuild, to a playoff slot again. With a deep farm things look good for the future, with minimal payroll limits going forward (Ryu, Grichuk, and Gurriel the only contracts beyond 2021). I can't see what anyone would have to complain about really. There are minor issues here and there but nothing major that jumps out at me. Opinions?
