Blue Jays fire Gibbons, bring back...wait, what? (espn.com)

Cito Gaston? Turn back the clock baby, because the AL East race is about to get even more exciting.

He was had one of the nebulous Special Assistant to the GM positions. Could've been doing a lot, could've just been getting paid enough to keep on staff.

It just seems to me that the problems in the organization are a lot higher than the coaching staff. Is this the last desperate act for Ricciardi before he gets tossed himself?

I will miss Gibbons' accent in his interviews, but not his over-wearing of that Jays' pullover, which he made look like a smock.

I thought he was a first base coach or something to that effect.

It's good to see him back.

I always wondered why no one was hiring Gaston. I can't think of any coach, in any sport, with two world championships on his resume who went as long without a job as he did.

Fixed!



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

http://espn.go.com/mlb/columns/schwarz_alan/1338567.html Bud Selig says he is "open to any possibility" with regard to the fate of the Montreal Expos. But he probably hasn't considered this.
