According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Don Mattingly has the best odds at 7/4 to be the first manager fired in 2013. The Dodgers have a high payroll but the results haven't translated on the field, as the club currently sits in last place in the NL West. Many people have blamed Mattingly's inability to coax more out of the team for the Dodgers' failures.

Meanwhile, Angels' skipper Mike Scioscia has the next best odds at 9/4 to be the first manager fired in 2013. The Dodgers aren't the only California-based team that has failed to live up to expectations despite an All-Star-filled roster. Despite harvesting the likes of Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and Mike Trout, the Angels are currently 10 games back of the first-place A's in the AL West. It's fair to note, however, that injuries have held back both the Dodgers and Angels.

The Brewers' Ron Roenicke is 5/1 to be the first manager fired this year while Eric Wedge of the Mariners is 7/1. John Gibbons of the Blue Jays is also 7/1 while Phillies' World Series-winning manager Charlie Manuel is 10/1. Ned Yost of the Royals and Terry Collins of the Mets are both 12/1, respectively.

The three long shots to become the first managers fired this year are Ron Gardenhire of the Twins, Joe Girardi of the Yankees and Bud Black of the Padres. All three managers are 15/1, respectively.
