Gibbons comments on Mazzilli

The Sun had an interesting article about Lee Mazzilli now that the O's are playing the Yankees, and apparently Gibbons was not too supportive of his old skipper. Some quotes:

"It wasn't all his fault," Orioles outfielder Jay Gibbons said. "I think somebody had to go and he was probably the easiest choice out of everybody. He didn't have a lot to work with. He didn't have his own [coaching] staff. In a lot of ways, he really never got a full shot. Then again, I am very happy with the staff we have now."

Then again, eh?

More:

"I think a lot of people liked Maz as a person," Gibbons said. "He was a very easygoing guy. He was funny. I really enjoyed him off the field. That's all I am going to say."

OUCH.

But this one takes it:

"I thought it was kind of an interesting move from the get-go, to hire a Yankee guy since they've kind of been our nemesis," Gibbons said. "You have this Italian guy, this New Yorker managing the Orioles. I didn't think it was a great fit in that aspect."

Uhh... Gibby... What kind of names do you think Perlozzo and Mazzone are? Sure, they're Marylanders, but still.

Oh well. I just hope he doesn't take crap for saying it.
