Why is Charlie Montoyo Managing the Blue Jays Right Now?

In a season filled with losses, the Blue Jays really don’t need any help racking them up. Yet curiously, their manager, Charlie Montoyo, has helped them earn what seems to be a few more this year. We have no objective way of measuring a manager’s decisions and putting it on the same scale as wins…
