This is ridiculous. The Jays always find a way to lose this season, and Gibbons is partly the blame for it as well. The Bullpen is just horrible and Gibbons is just an idiot. Fire him

All I can say is, other than Josh Towers, the bullpen allowed two runs from the sixth through the 11th. Those two runs came on a broken-bat single that bounced off Vernon Wells’ glove, and a check-swing double that landed in left field when the drastic pull shift was on. Topping it off, the homer that Towers gave up came after Alex Rios let a fly ball bounce off his glove, putting two men on base for Jhonny Peralta. All things considered, the bullpen did well on Wednesday night against the Indians.

I think Gibbons should consider Josh Towers for the closer role. That way, we could at least wait ’til the end of the game before we know for sure if we lost. A change of scenery might do him some good. BTW–Gibbons is NOT an idiot, and the bullpen has given pretty good value for the money this year. We just happen to have BJ Ryan and Brandon League on the DL–both key to our success, and Josh Towers, who might as well be on the DL. And it could be worse. We could be the Yankees!

Between watching Gibbons strutt to the mound and watching Towers try to pitch I think it’s time to switch to watching hockey. Oh and by the way Gibbons is an idiot

gibby is not an idiot he is a puppet if the real idiot had spent some money on pitchen instead of thomas we might be ten and five ?????

You are so right , Gibby Is nothingn but a yes man for another idiot,only reason he kept his job!!, also tells you how bad it has got when they put towers in the bullpen ,WHY ,To blow leads of course, they don t really want to win!!

If the Jays were 10 and 5 it would mean that they had somehow missed 12 games.
Towers has the best K/BB ratio on the team, and even after last night he has a better ERA than two pitchers whose slots in the rotation aren’t in doubt.

I meant 18-9 Sorry You cant blame Towers for Tues……Remember we only have one M.L.B. team in Canada I think they serve us well Thankyou torgen for setting me straight Jorden good BLOG no GREAT
