After 11 seasons spread over two managerial stints in Toronto,The Blue Jays will finish well under .500 this season, and are currently 73-87.
Gibbons already said his goodbyes to the city of Toronto and the fans when the Blue Jays played their final home game of the season on Wednesday. So, maybe passing the managerial duties to Martin is Gibbons’ way of trying to slowly ease his exit as the Blue Jays’ manager? Or, it’s just an odd stunt. Either way, it could still be meaningful for Martin.
