Or so Bob Elliot believes.

Elliot writes:

It’s not Cito Gaston 2.0, but John Gibbons 2.0.

Gibbons, who managed the Blue Jays for parts of five seasons from 2004 to 2008, will be introduced Tuesday morning as their next manager.

At the general managers meeting in Indian Wells, Calif., Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said he was “looking for someone he could work with, someone his staff could work with, someone who was good for the city, good for the whole country.”

From later in the article:

. . . under J.P. Ricciardi. Anthopoulos and Gibbons were close friends, working well together. Anthopoulos and Gibbons were spotted dining in Yorkville Sunday night.

Disclaimer: So far in the Toronto media only Elliot is reporting it. there's a non-zero possibility that it's not true but no one has offered dissent either.
