Well, this is interesting isn’t it.
Either the hall of fame writer has hit the jackpot of baseball scoops or it’s a sad error that hopefully won’t blur an otherwise stellar career.
Bob Elliott who’s been throwing as many names on the Toronto Blue Jays managerial board as anyone has arrived at a conclusion, that’s not sitting well right now.
As much as I respect Elliott, I really hope he’s wrong this time.
Nothing against Gibbons personally, I don’t know him personally, but it’s hard to belive that the answer to the Blue Jays managerial question is a guy who failed to get another MLB managerial job since being fired in Toronto.
Yeah, yeah, yeah Neither did Cito.
When Cito was re-hired, he had credibility.
Cito had won, not 1 but two times.
This guy hasn’t won anything. He failed before.
He wasn’t even in the major leagues last year.
Perhaps I am alone on this, but this is an instant pop in the balloon of excitement I had been feeling about the upcoming season.
An unimaginative hire by the Jays. A minor league move.
I can’t believe there wasn’t anyone better out there.
