Giancarlo Stanton will get his hits. Don’t worry about him. Yankee fans should be concerned about their pitching depth for this season.
Meanwhile the Reds were right to fire Bryan Price but they should have done it nearly 2 years ago.
Better late than never in this episode of Sully Baseball.
While we are at it, enjoy the In Memoriam video.
A few managers are on the hot seat, including Price in Cincinnati.
The make up of managers currently in the big leagues remain someone curious. Yes. I go there.
It is a “say things that make us uncomfortable” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Every year there are certain managers that have a ton of pressure to win. This is always a tough process to think of who will be nixed first.
On one hand, many clubs that should be in contention for the playoffs will see an axe come to their tenure, however sometimes clubs are so bad record wise (even though they were projected to be) that the franchise will just slay the field general in the name of mercy.
Ausmus doesn’t have a track record of any postseason series wins like the latter two here, so he is going to be the #1 favorite out of this group of skippers that could go fast with playoff aspirations if their team struggles out of the starting block.
Gibbons did a great job with Toronto in 2015, but a slow start would really put his name on the block. Say if they are 6 or 7 games behind the playoff bar near Memorial Day.
Farrell has put up back to back 5th place finishes in the AL East after winning the World Series Title in his 1st year of being the skipper in 2013.
Weiss has losing years for every year under his belt, and Ventura rode out 2013 with his late season collapse, but his club has underachieved in every other year.
Still the two most managers on the hot seat are Fredi Gonzalez of the Braves on top of the favorite list at +331, followed by Bryan Price at +441. But I hate putting money on either of these gentlemen with their clubs both being on track to challenge for the worst record in the Majors this year.
Heck, Gonzalez’s predecessor Bobby Cox was the well into his 3rd decade with the “Tomahawk” Choppers when he finally stepped down to a front office job. Gonzalez at least had the Braves in the playoffs in 2012.
Price can’t really be expected to do anything with this anemic Pitching Staff, and all veterans except for Votto may be available for trade at any point.
Bryan Price goes on a wild profanity filled tirade. But while he apologized for the tone, he still doesn’t understand the main underlying problem with his rant.
Meanwhile I am nervous for Marlins manager Mike Redmond’s job security and I remember the opening of Field of Dreams.
If you build Episode 907 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast. they will come.
Alfredo Simon, Luis Valbuena, Matt Kemp, Anthony DeSclafani, Andrew McCutchen, A. J. Burnett, Robinson Cano and Trevor Bauer all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?

There are many expectations in 2014 for a lot of the MLB clubs.
Realistically, only the Houston Astros and the Minnesota Twins could be ousted from playoff contention before we even play in the American League.
The National League has several more teams with improbable chances to post a postseason berth in 2014.
The Mets, Marlins, Twins, Cubs and Padres are the longest shots on the board to nail down play in October as well.
Out of those teams, Chicago just hired Rich Renteria, and the other 5 teams would likely let the year play itself out before thinking of a skipper’s switch.
With those teams listed, I highly doubt the current bench bosses will remain in position by the time the clubs become good. Read the rest of this entry
