Sports Illustrated had a little blurb saying the O's might finally dump Jay Gibbons. All I can say is, it's about time.
I'm a big fan of the Paul Brown maxim "you don't live with a mistake." Over the past ten years the Orioles have been living with one mistake after another and refusing to correct any of them. I would like to think that MacPhail might be setting the tone that sub-standard play will no longer be rewarded for years on end, but that might be reading too much into it. If nothing else Gibbons gone will be addition through subtraction and lessen the logjam of no-hit, no-glove, no-position, DH types.
