This has to be fake. It has to be. Gibbons was the worst manager in Blue Jays history that I care to remember. The worst.
We all know about the fighting he had with his players but does anyone remember how bad he was at managing the bullpen? His favoritism of Scott Schoewenweiss? The boneheaded moves he'd make keeping pitchers in too long, or pulling them when they were on fire? Was it Marcum that got yanked from a no-hitter because he was on a pitch count? There were so many instances of poor pitcher management
I dunno, I think its kinda good there is going to be a hardass manager. I know I was certainly tired of Lawrie pig headed baserunning and Farrell, putting a hand on his shoulder trying to explain it to him certainly didn't work.
He'll platoon players which umm, this team so needs. I hope I don't get to see Lind and Rasmus bat against a lefty much, if at all next season.
