Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 29, 2016

Spring training brings a great deal of hope to players, fans and managers. For a select few skippers, it’s the hope that this is not their last spring training on the job.

Here are the hottest seats in the business, brought to you with a great deal of debating that needs to take place.

From young teams who need to show improvement to some that have to make good on the stock of great talent they have, the following managers in trouble cover a wide swath of the majors’ most intense behind-the-scenes dramas. 

Join MLB Lead Writer Zachary Rymer and MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar as they debate who has the hottest seat in the bigs. 

Of course, this is an open debate, so please tell us how these skippers will be just fine or offer some candidates of your own.
