John Gibbons furious after Blue Jays surrender walkoff walk to RaysToronto pitching rotation not looking so good right now

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. - The Blue Jays rotation is either in a state of flux or in a mess — take your pick.
With Josh Johnson and J.A. Happ on the disabled list and Ricky Romero dispatched to Buffalo due to incompetence, the Jays once again have run short of pitching.
It’s not quite like the week in June last season when they lost three starters — two of them requiring Tommy John surgery — but the Jays are definitely up against it as far as finding bodies for their beat-up rotation.
In Thursday night’s finale against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Jays lost it 5-4 in the worst way imaginable as in the 10th inning, Brad Lincoln came on with two on and two out and walked both batters he faced to hand the Rays a 5-4 victory.
