John Gibbons managed the Blue Jays from 2004-2008, and now he’s making a return to managing the team.
When Gibbons managed Toronto from 2004-2008, he went 305-305, and the 305 wins makes him the third-winningest manager in the history of the organization.
Gibbons fills the position of John Farrell, who left the club to manage the Red Sox.
The announcement of the Jays’ new manager comes just a day after Bud Selig approved the mega-trade between Toronto and the Miami Marlins.
I’m sort of surprised by their new hiring, and I’m sure many of you are too. Heck, even Gibbons himself never imagined that he would be hired by the Blue Jays again.
