After covering the NFL and the NBA over the past two weeks, it is now time to move on to Major League Baseball.
More than any other major sport, baseball managers have to always be on the lookout for the man with the pink slip of paper because teams change managers these days like my wife changes clothes (which, I might add, always look great whatever she finally decides).
By my unofficial count, there will be seven new managers sitting in the dugouts when the 2011 season begins. That’s almost a 25% turnover and that doesn’t count the changes made during the season last year. Most of these came through firings but one came via retirement and that man needs special attention.
