A tweet from ESPN's Keith Law last night got my brain racing. Law wondered if Jim Leyland would take the fall in Detroit if the Tigers don't make the playoffs in response to a reader asking if Joe Girardi would get axed in New York if the Yankees missed the playoffs. I pitched the same thing about Mike Scioscia in Anaheim, and Law agreed that Scioscia could also get the axe. Could this MLB offseason result in more than a couple managers getting canned across baseball? The only manager fired thusfar this season has been Brad Mills in Houston as part of Jeff Luhnow's complete overhaul of the Astros organization. That's a little surprising, because teams usually feel free to go crazy and fire their managers when teams are underperforming...and there sure are a lot of teams underperforming this year. There are ten managers I think have the hottest seats right now, with results over the rest of the year having a big impact on their futures. Joe Girardi, Yankees. Girardi...

  • That trained chimp in Miami should already be gone. He is the phoniest manager in the game. He won it all ONE TIME when he managed the Whites Sox. Hell, you could have hired.....well, you could have hired a trained chimp to manage the Sox that year, they were stacked. The Marlins built a new stadiun and spent big bucks on better players and he proceeded to lead them to one of the worst records in the majors. Face it people, his BIG MOUTH doesn't make him a good manager, HE SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!!
