Here is my updated list of managers out, managers speculated to separate, and managers staying. I project activity Sunday and Monday as the regular season ends.

Out
  • Ausmus, Brad; Detroit Tigers (American League)
Probable
  • Gibbons, John; Toronto Blue Jays (American League)
  • Mackanin, Pete; Philadelphia Phillies (National League)
  • Matheny, Mike; Saint Louis Cardinals (National League)
Questionable
  • Collins, Terry; New York Mets (National League)
  • Snitker, Brian; Atlanta Braves (National League)
In
  • Melvin, Bob; Oakland Atheltics (American League) - extended through 2019 season
Vacancy
  • Detroit Tigers (American League)

Pete Mackinon will be heading to the owner's suite at CBP as an advisor to the GM, so the Phillies will have an opening.
The Mets will not be renewing Terry Collin's contract, so the Mets will have an opening as well.

Isn't that something which would be done irrespective of the team's manager?

The A's would love to add winning players to the roster, but the established ones cost more than they can afford. They have to hope that their minor league players live up to their promise and that they can hoodwink a few other GMs in trades. The latter is far more difficult now than it was when "Moneyball" was written.

Terry Collins will not be fired, he has circumvented that ignominy by resigning. He will be transferred to a front office job.

I knew it was about time that Ausmus had to go. I liked Jim Leyland though. I still cannot believe the Reds re-signed Bryan Price. They should have fired him last season, as 7express mentioned. That re-signing of Pryce was a joke.

Gibbons can't be blamed for this disaster of a season. The brass realizes it and yesterday confirmed the entire coaching staff will be back for 2018.

All bets are off though, if they limp into June under .500.

John Farrell has been fired as Red Sox manager. He's pretty much the only manager fired this year. Ausmus is gone as well but unlike Farrell, Brad Ausmus was not fired but did not have his contract renewed.

Carolina Knight, since you said that Farrell is safe, you may want to rethink that. The Red Sox fired him after the ALDS.

That's insane. He WON the division for crying out loud. Does the ownership want to say that the program needs to go in a different direction? The only direction is down. They got beat out in the playoffs. It happens.


One of the names already being mentioned as a replacement is Ron Gardenhire, the former manager of the Twins. Gardy would be smart to avoid this rat's nest. He's used to working for ownership that stands behind their managers way past what other organizations would do. Look at how the Twins kept Paul Molitor after last years disastrous 100+ losing season and this year I believe he may get the manager of the year award with a 26 win turnaround while using only a few veterans and a bunch of kids.


I like Gardenhire and would love to see him managing again some day, but for an organization with reasonable expectations.

I agree that the owner should not fire a manager when they won the Division but I've never liked Farrell anyways.
