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.

Jays’ offence comes alive to cure recent ills

Aug 16 2014 9:28pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

CHICAGO – The ability to score runs cures so many ills, allowing baseball teams to overcome mistakes and mask shortcomings. Case in point was the Toronto Blue Jays’ pressure-easing 6-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday night, when a few plays not made in the sixth helped them blow a three-run lead before they restored their advantage with a three-run rally of their own in the seventh. Melky Cabrera’s two-run double and Jose Bautista’s RBI single provided the ide ...
