What exactly did Alex Rios do to John Gibbons?

I can't wait for the Jays to get rid of this guy. He just seems like a confrontational jerk. I'm sure he had his "reasons" for not using Rios but I'm just as sure that they had nothing to do with baseball.

Now most people would just suck it up or resign, but Gibbons isn't most people. So he figures he'll make unfavorable decisions to help open the emergency exit out of Toronto.

What is it about Gibbons' job performance that makes you think any other team would be interested in hiring him? :-?

The man is more likely holding on to this job for dear life. If lots of moves make him look stupid.. well let's just say i don't think he's doing that deliberately

Where did I ever say he wanted to leave to go to another team or that another team would hire him?

Good point.. when you suggested he might be trying to look bad to force the GM to fire him, it was wrong of me to assume he'd still be interested in working as a major league manager in the future.

What if Gibbons simply forgot he had Rios available to hit? It is Gibbons we're talking about, after all. :-B
