Manny Acta: Best Odds to be first MLB manager fired in 2009?
With a 5-15 start, the knives are being sharpened in some corners of Nats Town. Now it appears that Vegas doesn't like Manny's chances, either. According to BetFirms dot com, BetUS Sportsbook has set the odds for Manny Acta being fired at 2/1:
There are several coaches that have to start wondering if they should put the house on the market, including Manny Acta of the Washington Nationals (2/1), Ron Washington of the Texas Rangers (4/1), and Cecil Cooper of the Houston Astros (4/1). You also can’t feel comfortable if you are Eric Wedge of Cleveland (5/1), Clint Hurdle of the Rockies (5/1), Ken Macha in Milwaukee (6/1), Joe Giarardi of the Yankees (6/1), Bob Geren of the Oakland A’s (7/1), Fredi Gonzalez of Florida (8/1), Bruce Bochy in San Francisco (8/1), or Joe Maddon in Tampa (8/1).
Interestingly, odds on Jerry Manuel getting fired are at 12/1. Remember, that's the guy keeping Manny's seat warm up in NY...Bet you Manny will take those odds...
