Albeit he’s a small favorite to be the first Major League Baseball Manager to find himself fired, Mike Quade of the Chicago Cubs has been instilled with that honor by the oddsmakers at Bookmaker.com, North America’s oldest established online gambling website. 

Quade would pay out $40 for every $10 bet.

Quade was promoted to serve as interim manager of the Cubs after Lou Piniella's sudden retirement on August 22, 2010, and by Oct. 19, he was named the “official” manager of the Cubs.

But Quade will face tough challenges up ahead.   The Cubs, after all, are a club that finished 75-87last season. 

“We can't forget that we did not have a good year last year. We don't have it figured out,” Quade said.

At +400 odds, Quade is hardly huge favorite to be fired first among the MLB clan.  In fact, there are a total of 12 coaches all within a one-and-a-half-point margin from one another in the category where Bookmaker.com is concerned. 

Clint Hurdle of the Pittsburgh Pirates has the next shortest odds at +475, which pays out $47.5 on a $10 bet.
