As the 2013 MLB season comes to a close, the annual manager "hot seat" discussion has begun.
It has been a quiet year for managerial fires in baseball, as Paul Hagen of MLB.com noted back in August. The only manger to be given the boot was longtime Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel, the winningest manager in team history, who was replaced by Ryne Sandberg on August 16 (and named full-time manager earlier this week).
Last season featured two midseason replacements, while two years prior, in 2010, 12 teams made 14 managerial changes, six of them during the season. The most recent year in which no managers were relieved of duty during the season was 2006.
Hagen reveals that since 2000, about seven teams make manager moves each year on average and approximately 3.7 of those moves occur during the season.
But enough with numbers, how about those intriguing hot seat details?
We already know the Nationals' Davey Johnson will be moving into a special advisor role with the team next year leaving a managerial vacancy in Washington.
Who else is treading water?
