What's Cito Gaston's future with the Jays?
Fri, October 2, 2009

By KEN FIDLIN, SUN MEDIA

A massive player revolt against Blue Jay manager Cito Gaston threatens to boil over, with players expected to ask interim president Paul Beeston not to bring Gaston back next season.

There have been a number of indications recently that dissatisfaction was growing within the clubhouse with Gaston's old-school approach.

This controversy comes at an awkward time for the Blue Jays, who are expected to name a new president soon. Presumably, that new president will address both the general manager’s position as well as the field manager’s position as one of his first duties.

What do you think will happen to Cito Gaston? Have your say in our forum.

Does it really matter!Cito doesn't sign the players and Cito doesn't run on the field and turn double plays.Maybe you should look at the players themselves instead!

Cito Gaston...who cares. See all the empty seats??? Still from the players strike, likewise I have no more interest in Blue Jays baseball, same as the other 40,000 ex-fans who are fed up forever.

The way it works, senatormel, is that the bottom feeders among the 30 teams go into a lottery, with the odds heavily favouring the lsst place team, and being reduced as you move up the standings for the next several picks. The lottery applies ONLY to the 1st pick overall. Once that is out of the way, everyone else picks according to their placement, and if the last place team should LOSE the lottery to one of the teams above them, they pick 2nd.

If the Leafs win the lottery, Bettman announces at the draft that, since the pick was traded, Boston gets to choose 1st (same with the 2nd pick if the, say, the Leafs lost the lottery and was bumped to that position).

Of course, for the Bruins to get the first pick, the Leafs would have to win the draft lottery.

Today's poll on Slam Sports asks for our opinion on who will win the lottery for the top draft pick. The first option is the Maple Leafs. Can anyon explain why the Leafs are on the potential list. They do not have a #1 pick - it was traded to Boston for Phil Kessel. Maybe the list should be revised to tell the real story.

Ron wilson need's to get the message hisself'he never gave Stajin a chance to play he is much better player than Michell.he has to pick on someone thar's his way.

Ken Fidlin heads an article calling the Yanks the "measuring st ick" for MLB teams.

Riiiight. And, presumably, their $200 million payroll. If the Jays could routinely spend that kind of cash Cito would have no problem managing a winner. But they can't - along with about 85% of the Major Leagues, so until baseball comes to terms with a slary cap that levels the playing field, as they say in Brooklyn "fuggedaboutit."

Keep Cito. Clean House

Cito showed that he was aware of some player's status before they knew and took it to the media(example: Rod Barajas) which upset some. However, when the Jays were eliminated I wondered why the call ups were not played more, such as Ruiz. Wells and Overbay have nothing they should complain about until they produce timely hitting. The team needs aclean sweep, coaches and veteran players alike, if that is possible.....

Dear Henry (and like minded)

Your comment, quote I don't think they know how to motivate the players of today. unquote.

Wow you must be a generation give me everything I want but don't make me work for it. A manager should not have to motivate anyone making MILLIONS to play ball (Wells, Rios et al). These candy assed complainers should be sent packing.
