Heads Have Rolled!

with 9 comments

Holy crap! Cito’s back! And Peavy, Whitt, and Denbo have all been axed along with Gibbons. to be replaced by the old-time Gaston-era staff of Gene Tenace (hitting coach) and Nick Leyva (third base). Sliding into first base is Dale Murphy. He was the second guy who was interviewed along with Denbo for the job this year, and the Jays roving minor league hitting instructor. The first base coach is usually pretty useless, but now the Jays have two capable hitting coaches on staff.

No news yet on whether the powder blues will become the full-time unform.

  2. Not Jon Hale as manager and Rance Mulliniks as hitting coach? Admittedly Molyneaux’s habit of saying “let it go” when he means “turn it loose” could have confused Rios.

  3. Well, I’ve been calling for the Blue Jays to bring back Cito.
    Good for him!

  4. I would have been much less surprised than I am now if I had been named manager.

  7. Haha- he’s the last one left, right? Duane Ward was toying with a comeback I think 2 years ago…

  9. Wow… I totally thought this was a joke when I first read it.

    By the way, I used your recent post about Alex Rios in my most recent blogpost.
