    I still don't know, Gibby seems to have a great relationship wth the FO. Listens to their advice and usually applies it to games. I would like to think Gibby gets a larger rope than that.
    Of course it wouldn't be Gibby's fault. The Jays will either contend for the playoffs or be also-rans based on the talent on the team and their health. But since Shatkins is selling a contender to the fans (Atkins: yes, the Yankees have Stanton but Smoak is "phenomenal" and Tulo is "phenomenal" etc.) then Gibbons will be the easy scapegoat if the team is simply not good enough to win.

    My favourite was the guy who I thought was a Brett Anderson troll (I mean, who would make a fake profile of Brett Anderson right?) and then I saw the blue check mark and number of followers and realized it was the real Brett Anderson.

    I personally prefer an exec that publicly shits all over his team's players. Bring back JPR pls. I wanna hear much, much more about how Tulo should have been drafted over Romero.

    Fired? WC? The team is shit what are you talking about. Lots of old players past it on big contracts + Donaldson, Sanchez and Stroman. If they build a team thatís competitive maybe

    that's my point ... the WC doesn't look promising ... but the FO is publicly saying that the Jays are contenders, so who is the fall guy if the season goes off the rails?

    CrackerJack agreed it won't be Gibby's fault. But if and when the team sucks. There's usually pressure to fire a manager, even if the manager does nothing wrong.

    Even when the Jays lost in the ALCS people were blaming Gibby just because. These people suck.
