A lot of times there always two sides to every story, said Gibbons. thing I found in baseball over the years, is everybody doesn like me when there a separation eventually. All we ask as coaches and managers is: out there and compete. Give us your best effort. I had some players I haven seen eye to eye with in the past and it just part of it. You not going to get along with everybody. But, you know, I don anticipate any problems. I heard some good things about him, too. said Jays management would have done its homework before signing Latos and he isn worried about positive karma in the clubhouse being disrupted. manager (keeping the peace) naturally that part of his job.

But the truth is, sell kate spade Grilli fully understands he isn a pup anymore, even though he said he still feels like one. He a bit of a freak. In 2008, his fastball averaged 92.3 mph.

There a lot of fight in me. Hey, if Bartolo Colon can still do it, I best keep up. He the model for all of us. He 43. You can play as long as you want, as long as you keep going out and giving your best effort. who was traded to Toronto from the Atlanta Braves in May 2016, brings more to the Jays than just a live arm and a veteran presence in the bullpen. He has fast become a mentor for younger pitchers on the squad, especially the team closer Roberto Osuna, who kept in touch with Grilli often in the off season. Grilli was used primarily as an eighth inning guy last season and will probably do a similar job this year, but he said he do whatever Gibbons asks. always going to take the ball, said Grilli, who was an all star with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2013. want me to pitch the sixth inning, I done that. They want me to sweep the floor, I do that. I never tired of putting this uniform on. When you not at your best and of all of us in this room can say there times when we like: working through some stuff that when your experience and being smart comes into play. not one player who not tired in September, October, he added. baseball.
