On the Hot Seat!
- Updated: June 19, 2008
The first firing of the 2008 season was Reds GM Wayne Krivsky back in April. Then in June we have seen the firing of Seattle GM Bill Bavasi and Mets Manager Willie Randolph, pitching coach Rick Peterson and first-base coach Tom Nieto. Now there’s rumors swelling around that Seattle is going to release 1B Richie Sexton outright.
What or Who’s Next?
Could Padres manager Bud Black be the next manager on the chopping block? After falling out of the Wild Card spot in a one game playoff game last year and the unexpectedly horrid start to the 2008 season up to mid-June you’d have to wonder. Maybe their recent rise out of last place has kept his job alive for a while longer, but if they don’t make a run at first place, he may be next.
Will Griffey or Adam Dunn finish the season as a member of the Reds? Will the Yankees come back to challenge the Rays and the Red Sox for fist place in the AL East? What do you think?
UPDATE: The Mariners just fired manager John McLaren!
