Managers In Danger

The Orioles have talked about signing a big free agent during the
off-season but have been mum on a contract extension for
Hargrove, who has had four straight losing seasons in Baltimore.
A recent 12-26 slide hasn't helped his cause. Manuel temporarily
saved his job by leading the White Sox into contention after the
All-Star break, but with Chicago out of the playoff hunt, his run
is most likely over. And Tracy, who has been criticized by
Dodgers players for his handling of relievers, could take the
fall for L.A.'s failure to make the playoffs despite stellar
starting pitching.
