Cito Gaston is BACK!!!

WOO HOO, FORMER JAYS MANAGER CITO GASTON IS BACK!!! Ever since he left the manager's spot, I stopped watching the Jays. Now that they've got him back, is this a signal that they want to get serious about rebuilding the team, and rebuilding a contender?

    Huge move for the Jays and fans. Too bad they fired Witt though.

    Cito's strength was his ability to 1) Manage a bunch of big egos so they worked as a team, and 2) Being able to help his hitters with with his knowledge from when he was a hitting coach.

    Whether that will help Toronto deal with their current mix of players, I really don't know, but none of the other managers they brought in did much to help either.

    mixed emotions all-around for me.

    I liked Gibbons, he did have a winning record, after all.

    But the '93 Blue Jays will always hold a place in my heart. Carter's home-run with two out in the bottom of the ninth off a 2-2slider thrown by Mitch "Wild Thing" Williams in Game 6 of the Fall Classic, knowing they'd have to face Curt Schilling the next night if they lost, is something I will never forget.

    Cito Gaston was also the first African-American to manage a team to a world series as well.

    ...just when I was ready to give up on this year, my interest has most certainly been rekindled.

    Go Jays Go!!!!!!!

    This makes me a little sad, but not for the reasons people may think. It reminds me of when my dad was so very ill and he got so excited and happy watching the barn burner games with the Jays - it made him happy, took his mind of his troubles and they won the year my dad died.

    Sentimental sad - but I think good news for the Jays.

    I once watched the Jays play the Yankees. I hoped they both would lose. Been a Cardinal fan since I was a kid but rarely see them on TV.
