08:17 AM ET 07.19 | This is a good time of year for managers-on-the-hot-seat speculation, but GMs aren't immune to the lame-duck chatter. Twelve teams started '11 with different managers than they had on Opening Day 2010, marking the second-largest managerial upheaval in major league history. A dozen GMs will not lose their jobs this offseason. But as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline looms, a dozen clubs face some form of uncertainty in the position. [On the hot seat:] Ed Wade, Astros: He probably would be in trouble even if no ownership change was imminent; the Astros' .323 winning percentage is the worst in the majors, and their farm system is hardly teeming with solutions.

He's on the hot seat because it's 137 degrees with 100% humidity in Houston...actually a little cool for July.

Henry needs to be fired ASAP from the CUBS. To tell you the truth the whole front office needs to be cleaned up and start with fresh new ideas.

I second EdgeofNate here, how could anyone with a functioning brain think that this Cubs team would be competitive, no SP depth, can't draw walks, bullpen woes, the list goes on.
