Buck Martinez was fired today as manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. Third base coach Carlos Tosca takes over.

Bye, Bye Buck!!!!

See you in the booth

How can you hold this against the GM. How many guys would keep the Manager when theyw ere hired as GM. I was surprised Buck lasted as long as he did, considering he was hired by Ash.

Ricciardi is trying to turn this team around and needs to be given time to make it work. He seems to be off on the right foot with guys like Lawrence and Hinske...

Whatcha Gonna Do???

And the real wonder of the world is that we don't jump too
So there's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do and yea the human tragedy consists in the necessity of living with the consequences under pressure, under pressure.

You had to expect that Martinez was going to go. Ricciardi is doing what he can but is burdened by long term crappy contracts that he cannot move - Mondesi, Cruz, Stewart (what a stiff). Even Delgado is overpriced. They have some real work to do to try and bring in prospects for this load of crap. I think Ricciardi and Keith Law (ex of the Baseball Prospectus) bring a lot of knowledge to the team and they will be very good 3 or 4 years from now.

He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.

I met Carols Tosca back in '95 when he was the Marlins' AA manager in Portland, Maine...SUPER nice guy. Talked to us for at least an hour after a game one night (my buddy's friend was the bullpen catcher.) I'm glad he's getting a shot...

Hey, if Riccardi's planning on building Oakland North, Martinez had to go. People could blame it on young pitching not developing, but they weren't developing before Martinez got hired. It was just a tradition--new GM comes in, old manager is gone by the end of the year, unless the team wins the Series.

A long overdue honour and it's a shame Santo finally got the call after he passed away. But, still, Santo is definitely deserving of being a HOFer and it's great to see him finally get his due.
