I'm enjoying the series with the Jays. I've got some theories why this team is underperforming and most of it stems from bad pitching, especially in the middle of the pen. They have some guys that I think could lock down the 8th and 9th but they have trouble getting there sometimes. The Jays can slug with anybody though which will keep them around for awhile.
The Jays biggest problem is Manager John Gibbons. Whoever though this retread was a good idea outside of Alex Anthopoulous, raise your hand.
When he was re-hired, AA spoke about how he has this laid back persona and how the Jays will benefit from it. Heck, at that press conference, Gibbons even looked like he was going to burst into laughter that someone had actually given him this job back.
With so many high level talents, this team needed a manager who was going to be hands on and force players to be accountable. This team continues to hire managers that are glorified spectators most games.
