What should happen to Jays coaching staff?
Tue, September 25, 2007

The Toronto Blue Jays didn't have to worry about another late-inning bullpen meltdown Tuesday night - they were buried well before the ninth in this one.

The New York Yankees knocked around a fading Shaun Marcum for eight runs - capped by Jason Giambi's grand slam in the fifth inning - en route to their sixth straight victory, 9-2 over their reeling hosts.

Are any of the Jays coaches in danger of being fired? Or do you think J.P. Riccardi may lose his job after this season? Have your say in our forum.

Will any Jays coaches get fired?

J.P. Riccardi should be the first to go. He hasnt done anything in his 5 or 6 years as the GM. Gibbons and the rest of the coaching staff are more difficult to judge, who can win with this group ? Doesnt help being in the same division as the Yanks and BoSox who can sign any free agent that comes on the market.

I agree its time to clean house including J.P. This is his 6th year and they are still no better than a 500 team. By the time the season ends they could be under 500. I havent seen any real improvement from the first few years till now.

All the posts in here say the same thing, J.P.'s time is up.

I have to agree with Gordon and Jimmy, fire them all and start with a new GM and Manager. I for one am tired of J.P.'s excuses of injuries and his " wait till next year " approach. The Yankees had just as many injuries or more than the Jays and there injuries were to the pitching staff and yet there they are 21 games over 500 and battling for the wild card spot. Looks like Riccardi stole a page from JFJ's book an overpaying for players like he did for Frank Thomas.

I agree with Jimmy. Time to start anew and get someone in who has won something before.

Then he can hire a successful manager and coaches.

JP is a master at saying "we had too many injuries and we'll be better next year."

It's amazing he's kept his job this long.

I think the new GM would need to make a few trades for some good, young prospects. Perhaps trade Jeremy Accardo now that his value is higher (or Ryan).

They need another top notch outfielder and a good catcher at least.

Eveyone from J.P. down should be fired. Time to clean house. Payroll has gone up, wins havent. This is J.P.'s 6th year I believe and still arent any closer to the playoffs.

Gibbons HAS to GO this guy does not know how to handle a pitching staff,last year was proof enough in the LILLY case,lost 2 games recently by pulling A.J. IN TAMPA AND ROY IN Detroit,Manages BORING Baseball Team has no drive. J.P. Also has to go his 5 year plan and promisses has FIZZLED Time for more aggressive management. Toronto fans are being cheated by this bunch.READ the John Brattain report on this team he , nails it right on POOR LINEUP & MANAGEMENT IS COSTING THIS TEAM WINS

I think that it's time JP pays the price for his mediocrity. He's increased the payroll and created an old slow team that couldn't hit in the clutch. Thomas at 10 million was a bust; Overbay was no better than Hinske; and the three pitcher (Ohka, Thomson, Zambrano) didn't make it through the year. They still don't have a full-time short stop and the pitching was saved by the kids. JP has been using smoke and mirrors to keep his job, but this may be it.

Oh wait, he did sign Stairs as an after thought and he's been the Jays best player, so I'll give him credit for that.
