Following the Blue Jays' 6-5 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, Ricciardi, the Blue Jays' general manager, told the Fan 590 that the club fabricated the nature of closer B.J. Ryan's injury during spring training.
Is it time for Ricciardi to go?
Ricciardi admits to misleading fans and media
He is about the only person who toots his horn (nobody else does).

What gives? Given how long a baseball season is, and we're barely over 6 weeks into it, I think patience, and some wise transactions would go a long way.
After finishing 2nd in the AL East last season, where were all the "fire Gibbons and J.P." comments then?
If this bad streak continues until the end of the month, THEN we should consider something drastic.
It's not how you start' it's how you finish.

Worst manager in baseball, with a team as talented as this one there is no way they should be this bad. I mean this guy pulls Halladay in april when he has the lead and is under 100 pitches and goes to his bullpen...insert joke here and laughter...are you kidding me. He has made stupid decision after stupid decision its time for him to go not JP. Hopefully JP will have the balls to can him!

The Bulpen is also an issue which needs to be addressed. Ricciardi needs to do something fast, and act upon this, or else we'll be out of the race rather quickly. I can tell the players are losing faith in the coaching staff, and they really aren't clicking right now. I think Ricciardi lost sight of what he was doing when he got some dollars to spend. He let Speir go, and signed a 39 year old guy who can't run. Fire Gibby, trade Rios, keep Lind up for good, and try to steer the ship in the right direction. Perhaps we can get some pitching for Rios and let our young kid Lind hit.
