    Cito Gaston Is Back!!!

    The Jays finally pulled the plug on John Gibbons and most of his coaching staff...bringing back Cito as manager, Gene Tenace as hitting coach and Nick Leyva as third base coach.....Dwayne Murphy is promoted to first base coach. Only Brian Butterfield and Brad Arnsberg remained.

    Could be 1989 all over again for Toronto (though I doubt it).

    Cito Gaston doesn't know how to use his lineup, he never uses his bench players...I highly doubt that he will be succesful.

    I have read just about ever publication ever printed about the Jays tenure with Cito as the skipper and they all have the same things to say. Basically there was a clique within the clubhouse with the latin players, and what you said Boom.

    Well...there's not many latin players on the team now .....and Cito basically has to make use of his bench because at certain positions (catcher, SS, 2B, at least until Aaron Hill is off the DL) there isn't a distinct starter.

    For Jays fans it's a lot of great nostalgia, but ya know...some old school coaching from actually successful coaches who've won might be just what is needed.

    Who knows.
