So... here are some internet gambling site odds pertaining to the looming question: Which MLB manager will be the first to get fired in the 2014 season. They come to us courtesy of Bovada (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV). Anyone out there gonna put there money where their mouths are?

SPECIAL - Who will be the first Manager fired during the 2014 Regular Season?

2/1: John Gibbons, Toronto Blue Jays

5/2: Kirk Gibson, Arizona Diamondbacks

5/1: Ned Yost, Kansas City Royals

5/1: Terry Collins, New York Mets

7/1: Bo Porter, Houston Astros

12/1: Mike Scioscia, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

After the first game of the season I would say Scioscia has moved up this chart to at least a 10-1 longshot, if his bullpen management is any indication.
