|The uproar in Red Sox Nation after Boston's Game 7 ALCS loss to the Yankees has fans everywhere calling for manager Grady Little's firing. Under heavy criticism from New England blaming Little for the loss and Boston missing another World Series, BetWWTS.com today announced odds on Grady Little being fired by the Boston Red Sox.|
Fully licensed and regulated in St. John's, Antigua since 1995, BetWWTS.com has established a betting option on whether the Boston Red Sox will fire Little before the 2004 season.
With Red Sox management receiving immense pressure to give Little his walking papers from both the media and fans, BetWWTS.com has listed the likelihood that Grady Little will be fired as an overwhelming favorite at 1/8 odds (i.e. win $1 for every $8 bet). BetWWTS lists the odds that the Red Sox will bring Little back as the team's manager for the 2004 season as a 4/1 a long shot.
'The harsh reality of sports today is that managers and coaches are continuously under the microscope and one wrong move can cost them their job,' said Simon Noble, CEO of BetWWTS. 'Little's decision to leave ace Pedro Martinez in the eighth inning of Game 7 has the fans and media making a persistent plea for his job. Although the Red Sox front office indicated it won't make a rash decision on Little's future, the unrelenting pressure and some second-guessing within the organization make Little's firing almost a sure thing.'
The Grady Little betting option is now open for wagering at BetWWTS.com. All current odds are subject to change and any wagers received after public knowledge of the Red Sox making a managerial decision will be voided added the company.
