    None of the above -- Joe Girardi -- New York Yankees. The team is going to get off to a slow start despite the size of their ungodly payroll; and Girardi and Steinbrenner are both hot heads. All-in-all not a good combination of events.

    Don't know how I skipped that one, but I think it's between Girardi and Wedge.

    You really think Girardi could get clipped? After seeing that list, you could make a case for Bochy, Acta, and Russell as well.

    Bochy ya, the Nats got rid of their GM and I think he was more the problem than Acta... Russell, well you can't make chicken salad out of chicken crap...

    Have to go with Cooper from the Astros. Ownership group is too much "what have you done for me lately".

    Joe Girardi. They always start slow, and now with A-Rod on the bench, they need someone to step up. I expect him to have a warm seat under him when I go see the Yankees/Royals in KC in April.

    He didn't get them into the playoffs last year so I'm guessing he has a short leash.

    Re: Who Will Be The First Manager Fired?

    Technically, the answer is Bobby Cox. He was fired by the Braves in 1981. He then returned to the Braves in 1986.

    The Sox could win 55 games and Ozzie won't be fired. The higher ups love him.
