    Jays hire back John Gibbons to be their manager

    This basically nullifies everything Anthopolous has done in the last 7 days.

    Gibbons is terrible.

    It's moronic to think this hire nullifies the addition of a starting shortstop, starting center fielder, another outfielder, two starting pitchers, a closer, and a catcher.

    So therefore I must ask, do you watch baseball? A baseball manger doesn't need a game plan like football or basketball coaches. He just needs to plug in a lineup, which is 95% done for him on most teams before pitchers and catchers report.

    That's just so f*cking dumb, it doesn't even dignify a response.


    You should've applied for the Jays manager job, since any retard can plug in a lineup. LOL.

    The Red Sox must be retarded then....considering they traded away their starting SS for a guy who is only plugging in a lineup.


    You must eat rocks for breakfast.

    Few points; Red Sox are retarted

    Mike Aviles wasn't going to be the Red Sox's starting shortstop next year, they obviously have very high hopes for Jose Iglesias. (who I don't think can hit a lick, but is an incredible fielder)

    Obviously baseball managers do more than just plugging in a lineup, they do far less than say a head football coach, but they still have other responsibilities. There main and most important job is to manage a pitching staff. My paint point still stands. It's incredibly stupid to say this hire nullifies the moves the Jays made this past week.

    Jays are probably going to finish 2nd in the AL East next year. Managers in baseball have almost nothing to do with the outcome of the game. It's like Mets fans blaming Wille Randolph for everything all those years they finally get rid of him and now they've been putrid ever since.

    I agree for the most part that managers in MLB are severely over rated.

    That doesn't mean there can not be bad ones. Willie was and always be a bad one.
