John Gibbons was fired Friday by the last-place Toronto Blue Jays and replaced by Cito Gaston, who led the team to World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. The Blue Jays are 35-40, having lost six in a row and 14 of their last 18 games to fall 11 1/2 games behind the first-place Boston Red Sox in the American League East. "The team just wasn't doing what was expected of it, and maybe changes were needed," Gibbons said during a conference call. "There was a lot expected this year, we came in riding high and speaking high.

Manager John Gibbons wound up with a bloody nose after scrapping with pitcher Ted Lilly near the Toronto dugout, and the Oakland Athletics rallied from an eight-run deficit to beat the Blue Jays, 12-10, Monday night. Gibbons and Lilly said no punches were thrown. "We were on the verge of something regrettable happening. We were yelling at each other face to face," Lilly said. The Blue Jays had an 8-0 lead, but Lilly was pulled in the third inning when the Athletics scored seven runs.

Physicist John H. Gibbons would seem to have it made. He is the White House science and technology policy adviser in an Administration bent on the kind of activist, interventionist science and technology initiatives that haven't been seen in this town for more than 30 years. The problem is that both by talent and temperament, Gibbons is more methodical consensus builder than bureaucratic "intrapreneur."

J & J Seeks to Overturn Ruling: On Friday, arbitrator John Gibbons ordered Johnson & Johnson to give former executive Elliott Millenson "all assets necessary," such as patents and laboratory equipment, to put him in operating control of the promising HIV home-test business he founded.

Alex Rodriguez helped the New York Yankees end their five-game losing streak with his bat -- and his mouth. Rodriguez distracted Toronto third baseman Howie Clark on a key popup late in the game, touching off arguments all over the field, and the Yankees beat the Blue Jays, 10-5, Wednesday. Rodriguez hit a run-scoring single with two outs in the ninth that made it 7-5. Jorge Posada followed with a high infield pop and Rodriguez ran hard, cutting between Clark and shortstop John McDonald.

Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad. In response to the demonstration, teacher Gillian Gibbons was moved from the women's prison near Khartoum to a secret location for her safety, her lawyer said. In Britain, Gibbons' son John said his mother was "holding up well" and that she had made an appeal for tolerance.

Toronto pitcher J.A. Happ is responsive and doing well after being struck in the head by a line drive during Tuesday night's game, the Blue Jays said Wednesday morning. The seven-year veteran suffered a head contusion and a laceration to his left ear, but the team said it expects him to be released from Bayfront Medical Center later in the day after further testing. The scary incident occurred at Tropicana Field during the second inning of the Blue Jays' 6-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Fla. Happ had no time to react as a line drive by Desmond Jennings hit him in the side of the face.
