Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons will return for the 2014 MLB season in spite of another sub-par showing from the team.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons will be back for the 2014 MLB season. 

This was confirmed by the Toronto Sun's Mike Rutsey, who quotes Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos as saying there won't be any changes in terms of the team's manager. 

"No, there's no changes. John's our manager. I understand what the response is when you're not playing well as a team. Everyone wants a why, everyone wants a reason and changes normally come when players aren't playing well and teams aren't performing and things aren't going well. So I think that comes with the territory. So, I'm not surprised (at all the chatter) from that respect." 

He also made an assurance that Gibbons won't be fired. 

"Not, not at all. I think we can all get better, myself included. When we are where we are in the standings and the results are what they are, there clearly is a lot of room for improvement and clearly we're going to need to have some type of change (just not Gibbons)."

Toronto was looking to break a 20-year playoff drought with the acquisitions of Mark Buehrle, R.A. Dickey, Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes and Melky Cabrera. This was not to be the case as injuries and poor performance took their toll on the Blue Jays. 

Coming off a 2-8 road trip, they are 59-73 (.447) as of August 27 and are in last place in the American League East. Gibbons' record as Blue Jays manager from 2004-2008 was an even 305-305. He was rehired in November after John Farrell was named Boston Red Sox manager.

The Beginning and the End of History

Jul 28 2014 1:15pm CDT | Source: Grantland

On Saturday, the Toronto Blue Jays won a game in Yankee Stadium for the first time in their last 18 tries. His team having lost there again Friday night, Toronto manager John Gibbons decided on Saturday that he wasn’t going to risk the lore anymore. Before every home game, the Yankees celebrate themselves and their history with a multimedia pageant that would embarrass Kim Jong-un. Great moments in Yankees history — and there are ...

Buehrle, Jays continue struggles in New York

Jul 25 2014 8:59pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

NEW YORK — Mark Buehrle was generous with his teammates Friday, buying five of them suits. Then he was charitable with New York’s hitters, giving up a pair of third-inning home runs that prolonged extended slumps for himself and the Toronto Blue Jays against the Yankees. Ichiro Suzuki hit a go-ahead, three-run drive, and the Yankees overcame an early deficit to beat the Blue Jays 6-4 Friday night for their 17th ...

NEW YORK — Derek Jeter stood on the dugout steps, stone-faced as a statue, when Ichiro Suzuki approached after rounding with the bases with his first home run since last August. Only when the Japanese star was inches away did the New York Yankees captain crack a wide smile and offer a fist bump. Suzuki hit a go-ahead, three-run drive in the third inning against Mark Buehrle, and the Yankees overcame an early deficit to beat the Blue Jays 6-4 ...
