Holy shit!? Cito?!

You know what will be the worst part about the Jays bringing back their former manager from the the franchise's halcyon days?

The sense of empowerment that it will give to all of the insane retreads who called JaysTalk over the past five years to ask why they didn't just rehire Gaston. Next up: calls for J.P.'s dismissal in favour of Pat Gillick.

We've got much more to come on this, but let us reiterate one thing: Holy. Shit. This. Freaks. Us. Out.

I'm just going to abstain from commenting until I can figure this all out. It might be a few days.

Firing Gibby, fine, but this is insane. Cito hasn't been in baseball, let alone a manager, since his days with the jays.

I can't believe that J.P. wants this move...this stinks of wanna be G.M. Paul Godfrey.

Enraging. I feel like I'm cheering for a team managed by the absurd jaystalk callers.

Why is nostalgia more important than current results?

The Jays remind me of the Leafs. Management keeps trying to push the square peg into the round hole.

We feel you, Ack. We're pretty much in the same boat.

After getting so frustrated by gibby last year, we really felt like he was doing a good job this year. We're a little sad for him.

Gene Tennace, though. Really?

Tao, when I read Gene Tennace was coming back, it was straight Twilight Zone time for me.

I'm trying not to comment, because I am going to be way overreactionary.....but....wow. Just, wow.

That is absolutely not the worst part. The worst fucking part of it all, the part that makes me want to sit in a corner and cry, is that Marty York called this weeks ago.

If this doesn't rekindle your love of the Jays, go take a rage dump.

Steve said...

So...next home game, Tuesday vs. Team Dunn. This might be the craziest TBJ game since 1993; I may actually fly home for this.

Andrew in Windsor said...

Oh well, the season is pretty much a write off anyway. Anything that happens from here on out is a bonus. If only they can dump JP next we'll be all set.

Really, as strange as it is, it can't get much worse.

When did we hire Rod Serling as GM ?????

Like most, I'm not sure what to make of this - for old times sake I hope Cito can turn it around, but this smacks of a last throw of the dice to me !

At the most I would have had Cito replace Dumbo (or whatever his name was)....Maybe MLSE & Rogers are sharing the Same water supply, that makes them believe its 1993.....or maybe I should just go up to my room, slam my door in anger and blast some Pearl Jam !!!!

I wouldn't feel too bad. At least this didn't happen at 3:14am.

How about if we change the name back to Skydome and see if that will help the Jays win some games.

Oh yeah, I heard Alomar was still working out.
