MLB: Which 5 Managers Are Starting to Feel the Heat in the Early Going?

Jim Leyland is starting to feel the heat in Detroit.

It may still be really early in the season, but as the weather heats up, so does the proverbial seat that each manager sits on.

A fast start can do a lot to assuage the demands of the fans, whereas a slow start can make the calls come louder and more bloodthirsty.

Again, I know that it's early. I know that nobody's getting fired anytime soon. However, what we can do right now is figure out who should start feeling uncomfortable if they can't turn things around soon. 

I've tried to leave first-year managers off this list, since they should get a slightly longer leash to establish themselves.

Down the road, they may be in trouble. For today, most of them are safe. 

Did I say I know it's early? This is all just speculation.

I realise I'll catch flack for suggesting that people could be fired, just half a month into the season.

However, once again, I'm just looking ahead and predicting. That's it. It might not come to pass. Who knows?

For now, let's just enjoy the ride.
