DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Jays contenders if they would have started the season with Gaston and giving Lind more playing time or is this just a nice looking winning streak that has happened late in the season?
(Ted from at the pool)
Lind's presence over the dessicated remains of Shannon Stewart or Kevin Mench/Brad Wilkerson certainly would have improved matters, but there's a lot of other factors that would have had to go right - better health (and fortune) from Dustin McGowan, Shaun Marcum, B.J. Ryan, Vernon Wells, Scott Rolen... wow, that's a lot right there. A.J. Burnett avoiding his mid-season cold streak, too. Given some better luck in breaks like those, they coulda been contenders, but as it is, it's just a nice-looking winning streak. Their potential as spoilers (7 games vs. Boston as Joe from Tewksbury mentioned above) probably shouldn't be underestimated. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of managers, what are your thoughts on John Gibbons? Losing back to back 1 run games without using your closer seems like a mistake. I know change for the sake of change isn't a winning strategy but don't the Jays need to shake things up somehow?
(Taylor from Toronto)
What's interesting is that two years ago, Gibbons was pretty aggressive about using B.J. Ryan in the eighth inning. I wonder if the lesson he learned was, "I break guys that way." In any case, Gibbons is not part of the solution, but there's only so much to be done with that roster. Too righthanded, too slow. All the pitching and defense in the world--they have about 22% of it, actually--won't help. (Joe Sheehan)
