The Seattle Times Mariners beat writer speculates that Mike Hargrove might not finish the week before he's fired. The Mariners have lost six in a row; if the losing streak hits double digits it could be the guillotine for Hargrove, or so he reasons.
On the other hand, however, the same writer also says that word around the campfire is Hargrove has already been given a contract extension for 2008. (This comes from a source in another organization's front office.)
It would actually be rather Mariner-esque to give Hargrove an extension and then boot him anyway. They've already wasted $111 million on this year, what's a few more scoots?
The thing that grinds on me, though, is what's Hargrove done in three weeks of this season that has proven he is any worse a manager than when last season ended? All that giving him "one last chance" has done is doom this season before it even started.
