    ****, I didnt like him at all... i dont think he could manage a whore house, if true i hope he has learned something since he left..... ill stay open minded for now not to kill the buzz around the Jays but there were better guys out there IMO. Still he is better then Farrell though!!!!

    Honestly, there are so many candidates for managerial position and only very few great managers. Obviously AA liked something about him during his tenure with the Jays (AA was in the front office).

    Either thaat or Rogers is trying to appeal to the nostalgia in the fanbase (Halladay?)

    If I read the article correctly, Elliott is basing this on seeing Gibbons in Toronto with AA today?

    I love Gibby, I think he's a tremendous fit for this club. When I mentioned his name way back when Farrell first left I really didn't think he'd ever be an option here because of the negative perception of his first go round. The fact that AA is going all in with this guy despite what's sure to be a negative reception from the fans/media is actually incredibly encouraging.

    He's just stating that. Don't think he's basing it on just that

    Agreed. He wont put up with Romero's piss poor entitled attitude. He will put him in his place which is nice.

    Hardly.

    2004 - 27th in reliver era
    2005 - 11th
    2006 - 11th
    2007 - 3rd
    2008 - 1st (im sure the best rotation in baseball had something to do with it)

    2008 was also the season Mcgowan, Marcum and a whole bunch of other pitchers got hurt not sayng its gibbys fault but i didnt always agree with his call to the pen.

    Im also indifferent bout Gibbons. But i take it with a grain of salt. There was a reason he was fired the first time around
