Tracy is toast. Depodesta will want to bring in a new manager when he brings in new talent next season. This year will be a disaster for the Dodgers.

I saw the of their ST games last week. Edwin Jackson might be the best player they have on the entire team. It looks like Shawn Green lost a lot of weight. The OFs are terrible. They have no 1B unless Green plays there. Loney looked good - but he is a year away. Same with Franklin Rodriguez - but he might be closer than I think. If Green goes to 1B, Rodriguez could start. The biggest surprise in Dodger camp to me was Jose Lima. He looked fantastic.

In any case - with their is a lack of talent, Tracy is toast.

While I think Tracy will get the axe eventually. Torre will be first to go. That pitching staff (Mussina, Brown, Vazquez, Contreras, Lieber) sound solid but sans Vazquez has age and breakdowns could lead to problems that lineup can't cover up. If they don't score it's Torre's head. While it's more a Cashman created problem - Torre will take the heat first.

I know this might sound a little unrealistic but I wouldn't be suprised to see Terry Francona get the boot if the Red Sox struggle. The Red Sox need to do really good this year as they have a lot of free agents at the end of the season on their roster. Epstein gave the boot to Little last year after the Game 7 fiasco and I'm sure he's willing to boot Francona during the season if the Red Sox don't play up to the huge expectations.
