Vegas: Ron Roenicke not among 7 managers most likely to be fired

New, 12 comments

If these odds are any indications, there aren't any hot seats in the NL Central.

Ron Roenicke needs 42 wins to become the fourth-winningest manager in Brewers franchise history and, if today's email from Bovada is any indication, he has a pretty good chance to stick with the team at least that long.

The online casino released odds today for a special proposition bet asking which MLB manager will be the first fired this season. The choices are below:

Manager Team Odds
Ryne Sandberg Phillies 5/2
Terry Collins Mets 3/1
Bud Black Padres 5/1
John Gibbons Blue Jays 6/1
Fredi Gonzalez Braves 6/1
Don Mattingly Dodgers 7/1
Joe Girardi Yankees 9/1

If these odds are any indication, it could be a rough year for NL East skippers. The NL Central, however, completely avoids this conversation.

I guess it's not surprising that the Cardinals and Pirates, in the middle of a solid run of success, aren't likely to fire a manager, and certainly Joe Maddon is safe with the Cubs at this point. That leaves Bryan Price of the Reds, who struggled to a 76-86 mark in his first season at the helm, and Ron Roenicke, less than a year removed from his team's epic collapse and now over three years removed from his lone postseason appearance.

So what do you think? Should Roenicke be a part of this conversation?
