Gibbons To Stay Through '08

It seems the Toronto Blue Jays have given manager John Gibbons a one-year extension worth $650,000.

Gibbons, 44, has been around since the replacemnet of Carlos Tosca in the middle of the 2004 season. However, this was the final year of his contract, and going into spring training he still was not given an extension..

The Jays finished second in the American League East last season at 87-75, their best record since 1998.

Gibbons is walking the line with an overall record of 187-187.
