Oz has spoken -- without much fanfare, the Rogers Jays have given Cito Gaston a two-year contact extension.
It's an easy sell, bottom line. The Jays are 48-36 under Clarence (compared to 35-39 under John Gibbons). Throw in that Gaston is good enough, smart enough and doggone it, people like him.
Bob McCown was being all high-dudgeon about the release from the Jays being worded, "the Toronto Blue Jays announce." There was no mention of either half of Godcciardi.
Hey, at least they didn't find a way to lose 100 games with a $100-million payroll.
