  • Gasaton: "We'll have a good team in 2010"

    With major injuries to their starting rotation, Toronto Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston is writing off 2009 and looking towards 2010 instead.

    As reported in Thursday's Toronto Sun, Gaston rcognizes that with injuries to starters Shaun Marcum and Dustin McGowan, it is unrealistic to expect much success this coming season.

    "We're not moving backward, we're moving forward, we'll have a good team in 2010 and for a long time," the Blue Jays manager told reporters on the day the New York Yankees landed free agent starter CC Sabathia.

    "We'll have Shaun Marcum back (in 2010, he'll miss all of 2009 because of elbow surgery) and we'll have Dustin McGowan back in May or June this year and we have some good kids like Travis Snider and Adam Lind," Gaston said. "But right now ... today ... we have three starters."

    Gaston projected the Jays to have a "good team" for four or five years starting in 2010.

    "I might not be here, but there is a foundation for a good club in 2010 ... of course we'd have to talk about signing Roy Halladay to a long-term deal again."
    He knows it, we know it, it's about time somebody said it. I love CIto's refreshing presence and it's a nice change from JP's constant lies.
