    The only silver lining is that they will be bad enough that some blown saves will make no difference as to whether or not they make the playoffs.

    Indisputably, having Osuna would have been much better for the Jays than Giles. The big problem for shapeero is that Osuna was not acquired during shapee's tenure. God forbid that an impact player that AA acquired is still on the team.

    Any spec on who will be Gibby's replacement? "Yes man" Wedge has to be at the top of the list.

    my top 3 choices for manager - with absolutely no inside knowledge

    1. Sandy Alomar (cleveland connection, terry francona connection, roberto alomar connection)

    2. Curtis Granderson - agreat guy and great baseball knowledge

    3. Joe Girardi - might help us beat the yankees

    Because you got the right surname but the wrong given name.

    If I were in Shapiro's shoes, I would pick Robbie Alomar.

    I highly doubt that he would have been any major drag on the team if we'd kept him. The argument could have very easily been made that he paid a price (half a season), he is remorseful and a changed person and we will stick by him and give him a second chance albeit with a short leash.

    Sorry, didn't pick up on the sarcasm.

    Simple assault doesn't get you banned from anywhere, much less the USA, much less when you're a star athlete.
    After 30 years hobbying and 15 years on TERB, maybe I should write my memoirs. I'd call them..... "If these Balls could talk".

    Gibby needed to win the WS in either 2015 or 2016 to be put on the LoE. That's what the criteria really is for a manager.

    yeah, without that I'm not even sure why it's a discussion.
