Odd Makers: Is Mills a lame duck coach?

The Bovada Sports Book has just named our fearless leader a 5/1 odds of getting fired this season. No, he isn't in first place with the best odds to get fired. That distinction goes to the Padres' manager Bud Black at 3/1. But Mills does come in second and with 190 something loses in only two years at the helm, it makes sense why he would appear so high on this list. Now, I along with you guys, understand Mills hasn't been dealt a fair hand yet and really hasn't been handed a team with much talent. While he has had some questionable managerial calls, I chalk that up to inexperience and growing pains of a new manager. Personally, I like Mills and think he is a great fit for our club house. He has always been heralded as a great communicator and I feel that is especially important when dealing with a young team like the Astros will be fielding this year and probably next year. Also, I hope he is granted another year because he spent so much time in the AL, I think he could help greatly during this transition.

I really feel it would be a great loss for the Astros at this point, or any point during the season to dismiss Mills. Give him a talented team, not the most talented team the worst farm system can provide, and if he falls on his face, then give him the boot. But until then, it's kind of unfair to really judge him. Well, that my two cents. What say you guys?
