Lack of Offence Doesn’t Bother Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons
Not surprisingly, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons‘ media briefing Tuesday turned into a navel-gazing session regarding his team’s scanty offence over the last few weeks.
The team was coming off its fifth shutout of the season, but its first in the last 53 games, a 1-0 loss on Monday to the Yankees.
Young righthander Chad Green had muffled the Jays on two hits over six innings. Yankees pitchers struck out 13 Toronto batters, which isn’t all that unusual. It was the 39th time the Jays lineup had whiffed in double figures.
