The Blue Jays who love to run reverse plays have pulled off another one with Brett Lawrie.

Beginning Thursday night they have canned the idea of having Lawrie play second base and will have him nailed own at third through the remainder of the season.

Either that or until they change their mind again which could happen at any point in time.

This development came to light earlier in the day when manager John Gibbons was a guest on the MLB Network Radio channel on SiriusXM.

During the interview Lawrie's name came up and Gibbons said: "I'll tell you what to be honest with you we had a game last night (Wednesday) and Brett had a couple of plays down at third base that most guys can't make. And so I was sitting on the bench with DeMarlo Hale our bench coach and we're thinking you know maybe it's time to can that experiment for the year anyway because he's so darn good over there and we'll live with those guys at second (Maicer) Izturis and (Mark) DeRosa. So you may see that one put on hold for a little bit simply because of what we saw last night. Because I mean he's (Lawrie) pretty good. You guys are the first to know that too by the way."

Thanks for the scoop Gibby.

Prior to the game against the Houston Astros on Thursday Gibbons elaborated on the decision. Since returning from the disabled list Lawrie has played in nine games and was at second for seven of them.
