Report: John Gibbons and Blue Jays to part ways after this season

So, anyone here considering applying for this job?

Less than a month after John Gibbons said he wasn’t overly interested in going through a rebuild in Toronto, a new report suggests he won’t have to.

The Blue Jays and their manager are set to part ways at the end of the season, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. And while this development won’t shock anyone who has been following the team, it does mean that Gibbon’s second stint in Toronto is all but officially coming to a close.

According to Heyman, one person familiar with the team said it’s “99.9 percent done” that Toronto will seek a new manager in the winter. Gibbons has reportedly been engaged in talks about the team’s future with GM Ross Atkins for quite some time.

Guess he didn't like Shapiro's explanation about not calling up Vlad Jr.
