Baseball season is still in its infancy, but the odds are out on what manager will meet his demise first.
Who will be the first manager to be fired?
Charlie Manuel 4/1
Bud Black 9/2
Ron Gardenhire 5/1
Ron Roenicke 7/1
Joe Girardi 15/2
Eric Wedge 8/1
Ned Yost 9/1
Terry Collins 10/1
Clint Hurdle 10/1
Mike Scioscia 12/1
John Gibbons 20/1
Looking at that list, I’d put my money on Gibbons of the Blue Jays. That may have been the worst hire of the offseason. Here’s a guy who didn’t do much the first time through Canada, what makes anyone think he’ll do anything his 2nd time through. Yes, he has lost Jose Reyes, but that awful record so far is worse than anyone expected.
Mike Scioscia would also be a good bet, especially since most of his name players have either forgotten how to hit, or are playing down so they can get a change. Don’t think those Tony LaRussa rumors are fiction either. Albert Pujols already got Scioscia’s good pal Mickey Hatcher fired last year, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he’s angling for a bigger fish this year. the ony thing in Scioscia’s favor is his lonnnnnnnnnng term contract. If he does get fired, could he take Jerry DiPoto with him. Way to upgrade the pitching man.
