Jayson Nix fractured left hand. Le sigh.

I know they will have him back for the playoffs but he was finally on a role after being moved to the leadoff role. The Braves are dropping like flies. Pastornicky went down for the season last week. Looks like Jordan Schafer is going to get some playing time.
Oy! It's like anyone that gets hot gets cooled off by injury. Grr! Whoever has come up from Gwinnett hasn't been bad. Uggs should be back soon

I'm interested to see how the Joey Votto contract plays out. I'm also curious about the kind of deal that Robinson Cano is going to try to get.
The Votto contract will be a boat anchor on the Reds the last 6-8 years of the deal, no way should a team give anyone a 12 year deal

Man I don't like seeing Atlanta get shut down like that but Adam Wainwright is really fun to watch.

The above is another example of how the Toronto media continues to coddle Jays manager John Gibbons, even as they are being spanked by the worst team in baseball in Houston on consecutive nights.

Many of them, including those employed by Rogers Sportsnet, coincidentally the team owner's channel, is saying "Oh, he's not playing on the field, it isn't his fault." But this team can't do anything right fundamentally. They can't hit, bunt, field. All it seems they can do is stupid celebrations. I'll give you an example: last night, Jose Bautista is in the dugout, he's injured, the team down by five plus runs, and he's fuckin' clowing around. If you are the leader of this team and they can't pull their head out of their asses against a team that is in a massive tear down stage of a rebuild, why aren't you on top of them on every mistake? Trying to coach them on their mistakes like a real leader would, because the coaching staff sure as hell isn't.

This team is trotted out as "Canada's Team." The team owners, Rogers, have them in commercials promoting their Cable and other services and having them do multiple stingers that make the players look like idiots. They are brought out again and again to do stupid interviews and skits with the local media, but you never see them actually practicing or trying to fix what is wrong. And when you have a manager that says "Oh shucks, well, I guess we'll get them next time" after a loss, it's just the cherry on top of the sundae.

People complain about the NHL's Maple Leafs not putting a winning product on the ice, but I think the Jays owners thought they'd be able to coast through this season, raking in the dough by saying "Oh look we brought in Reyes, Dickey, Johnson..." I haven't attended a game all year and wouldn't, if not for a friend's birthday party next weekend.

These players have the potential, they have the skill. What they need is someone who is going to hold them accountable to actually use that skill. Fire Gibbons now and start righting this ship now!

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Earlier in the year, I had said DeMarlo Hale, but I really don't know anything about him except that he has been sitting next to Gibbons during this train wreck.

I don't know enough about names to say Charlie Manuel or whomever, but this team needs a manager that can teach, but also hold players accountable when they do stupid things.

At this point, I think the only coach you can keep is Pat Hentgen in the bullpen and it's not just some nostaglic ex-Blue Jay thing. The bullpen was the only thing going right for the Jays all year and the only reason it's fallen apart is because they are coming in the third inning of most games.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

The Toronto media has been harping up that Mike Scioscia may be available if the Angels keep flatlining.

Or one of these guys, the 54 the Toronto Star suggested before they hired Gibbons (#51)
