Any time there are rumours about the Blue Jays, the natural instinct is to brush them off. After all, Toronto is linked to dozens of rumours throughout the season. Most of the time it’s regarding free agents or trades, but this rumour is a different kind of animal altogether.
Omar Vizquel’s comments from last week indicated John Farrell is running a loose ship as the Blue Jays manager. As far as I’m concerned, where’s smoke … there’s fire. As George Costanza would say, “this thing is like an onion; the more layers you peel, the more it stinks”.
I don’t want to accuse Farrell’s mind of being elsewhere (thinking about a new position with the Red Sox for example), but maybe John Farrell has checked out. Why else would behaviour like this be continually tolerated?
It all kind of adds up, doesn’t it? More over at BJH.
