DUNEDIN, Fla. Manager John Gibbons offered more proof of the christian louboutin uk Blue Jays' allin approach to this season Tuesday, saying the team's final christian louboutin wedding shoes uk squad will be determined by talent rather than any roster red tape.

At times, some roster choices are made with an eye on whether a player has any options left, meaning he can be on the 40man roster but louboutin uk sale move between the major and minor leagues without being placed on waivers. A team might elect to keep such a player rather than risk losing him to another team by sending him down. Each year, when a christian louboutin outlet player who is on the roster gets sent to the minor leagues for a stint of more than 20 days, it counts as an option.

Gibbons says those who perform will stick with the big club. Of course, given Toronto's offseason acquisitions, there aren't too many roster questions to answer in preseason.

"It's an important year for us," Gibbons told reporters. "So we're going to go with the best team. . In the past or it's a year where you don't know for sure, you're not as optimistic, you might want to try to hold onto some guys because they're out of options.

"This year we've got to go with the best team. Dickey, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, Melky Cabrera and Jose Reyes in a bid to challenge for the postseason.

Gibbons also revealed Tuesday that Brandon Morrow will start for the Jays in their spring training opener against Detroit in Lakeland, Fla., on Saturday.

Either knuckleballer Dickey or Johnson will start Monday at home against a split Boston Red Sox squad.

Gibbons has already said Dickey, who went 206 and won the Cy Young Award last christian louboutin outlet uk season with the New York Mets, will start opening day.
