Whats the point in firing Wedge, the problems are all in the front office, not in the dugout.

that's because George Steinbrenner is dead.

I'm still holding out hope the Red Sox go back under 500

It'd be glorious to see Bobby V get canned

Seconded. What a mess that team has become.

I actually feel better now that I've given up all hope.

Why? You beat the Yankees yesterday, you're only 9.5 games out.

The only reason Terry Collins isn't being fired this year is R.A. Dickey

and David Wright.

The Two reasons that Terry Collins isn't being fired this year is Dickey and Wright.

And the Wilpons getting a small victory in the Madoff case.

The Brewers just canned their pitching coach. Does that count?

That series is no indication of future performance.

Sparky Anderson said: 'Every team wins 60 games and every team loses 60 games. The real season is 42 games long'. (or something like that). The Red Sox can't beat the premier teams that represent those 42 games.

Davey Johnson said before the season that if the Nationals miss the playoffs, he should be fired. Asked about it the other day, he reiterated his stance. "If we don't get there, they should fire my ass."

Davey has managed 12 teams for an entire season. Eleven of those teams have finished in first or second place.

How he hasn't had a job for most of the past decade or two is startling. Though maybe he didn't want one.

I think the extra wild cards has a lot more teams thinking they are competing.

Just checked that. It was the bullpen coach, and no, it doesn't.

Orgasmatron138: I think the extra wild cards has a lot more teams thinking they are competing.


That probably has something to do with it...I read something a few weeks ago that basically said the extra wild card spots meant that there wouldn't be the wide open trading deadline frenzy as seen in the past because more teams thought they still had a chance to make it to the post-season...

So you're saying Collins has a job because he Madoff with the Wright Dickey?

Well it's certainly why Jerry Sandusky doesn't have a job.

Unlike what some Philly fans want, Charlie Manuel isn't about to be canned, because this mess is more RAJ's making than anything else. (Exception: Unless Charlie decides to play Utley and Howard day-after-day until they can't even walk anymore, or keeping Doc on the mound until his arm fell off. Then it might happen.) However, I wouldn't be surprised if he decides to "take an extended leave of absence due to health problems" at some point.

Bobby V is signed for two years, which means he will be the first manager fired in 2013.
