The Blue Jays blew out manager John Gibbons and his coaching staff today, and brought back Cito Gaston to manage (and some of his coaches from the Jays’ early-’90s glory years).
After being swept in Milwaukee by the Brewers and losing five straight game, the Toronto Blue Jays have fired manager John Gibbons, coaches Marty Pevey, Ernie Whitt and Gary Denbo.
On a personal note, Gary Denbo is a very good friend, and deserved better. He was scapegoated by George Steinbrenner in 2001 after the Yankees lost to the Diamondbacks in the W.S., and now this. Good coach, even better family man. He’ll have a job in about three seconds.
