Mills a favorite to get canned

The Kansas City Star's Bob Dutton is saying that the "betting co-favorites" to get canned next are Dave Trembley and Brad Mills:

The betting co-favorites for the next to go are Dave Trembley of the Orioles and Brad Mills of the Astros at 4-1. That seems harsh regarding Mills, who is in his first year as the Astros’ manager.

Yeah. That does seem harsh. I'll kick a dog if Brad Mills gets fired.

Mills is a huge improvement after Cooper, and definitely doesn't deserve to even be in discussions for possible firing at this point. That said, he's definitely made some baffling/stupid decisions so far. Like every time he starts Jeff Keppinger at shortstop.

Why fire a guy that was basically brought into a buzz-saw of a situation? I agree some of his decisions are questionable... but geez. Put any manager in the MLB at the top of the Astros and their record is not much different if any.

I think Mills is doing the best with what he has.

If he gets fired and Kaz Matsui is still on the team then Ed Wade should be the next to go.
