Thanks for the memories Cito Gaston

    I know some of you might not believe this deserves it's own thread but I do. This is Cito's last year as manager in the big leagues, and tonight is his last night managing in Toronto.

    It was great to see people like Bobby Cox, Dusty Baker, Hank Aaron and others giving thanks to Cito for what he's done for them or Toronto.

    I'm a huge Blue Jays fan, and I've always been a fan of Gaston since 92'(only started to watch baseball in 1992) thanks for the memories Cito. He'll be missed.

    The video message was very emotional.

    It was good he got a victory lap, so to speak, by coming back these last couple years. He didn't seem to get too much appreciation for the back-to-back titles. Obviously they didn't win the Series or even come close this time around, but they're going to finish with a winning record in a loaded division AFTER trading their best player and beginning another overhaul. He has to get some credit for that.

    Javy Vazquez doing his best to send Cito off with a win.

    Nice. :D

    And this does deserve its own thread, dammit. People are falling all over themselves to bid farewell to Bobby Cox (who, incidentally, brought Cito to Toronto), and with good reason. But let's not forget that, when all is said and done, Gaston has two World Series rings and Cox has only one.

    Says here that Cox would have won more than one if he'd stayed in Toronto. :)

    Cito Gaston was so smart, he put Rickey Henderson, Paul Molitor, Robbie Alomar, John Olerud, Joe Carter and Devon White in the same lineup and won baseball games with that crazy concoction of players.

    There are plenty of guys who won fewer games (and fewer championships) with teams that were just as talented, if not more so.

    Always been a huge Cito fan - remember him as a kid when he was with the Padres because I thought Cito was such a cool handle.

    Was good to see him get a chance to come back after the way he left the first time. A lot of Blue Jay seamhead fans ragged on him over his handling of the pitching staff, the way he utilized Travis Snider etc., but I think he showed a lot of confidence in a young group of pitchers and brought a great deal of stability to a team that's last manager wanted to fight the players.

    Will be a tough act to follow for whoever assumes that spot.
