DateQuestionAnswer
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm doing more screaming at my TV than usual since Cito and Gene Tenace are now the saviours in Toronto. No word of a lie. In the first inning of the first game Rance Mulliniks and Jesse Barfield noted how the Jays batters had a noticeably different approach at the plate and that was due to the change in staff. How ridiculous is that.
(Otto from Halifax)
They stood taller! They just loosened up and had some fun! They had a laxative! Whatever value Gaston brought, it would have to be in intangible, mood-altering managing, because tactically he didn't do ANYTHING... except trash his own young players. (Steven Goldman)
