Which Managers Could Be In Trouble?

As the 2012 Major League baseball season enters its final month, already there is speculation about the future of some of the managers.

In the American League, the first name that comes to mind should be pretty obvious.  Bobby Valentine is certainly on the hot seat in Boston, although a lot of the players who had issues with Valentine have been traded to other clubs.

There are rumblings in L. A. about Mike Scioscia.  However, he is under contract through 2018 and Angels’ owner Arte Moreno says the 13 year veteran manager’s job isn’t in jeopardy.

And, this was a year many thought the Kansas City Royals might break through a little.  They haven’t and that could mean trouble for Ned Yost.

Things are a little less obvious in the National League.  The Astros have already fired Brad Mills.  Ozzie Guillen might be wearing out his welcome in Miami, and after a decent start, the wheels have come off in New York for Terry Collins, but no one in the senior circuit looks to be in as much trouble as Valentine in Boston.
