• Sports Weekly reported this week that despite the A's turnaround, the team is expected to let Manager Ken Macha go after the season and replace him with bullpen coach Bob Geren. Beane has said that Macha has done an admirable job this season. However, the two haven't spoken about a contract extension since before spring training.
Well rape my anus and call me a prison bitch! This is the best news I've heard all week! I knew that Billy wasn't this stupid. I just knew it. Despite using such words as "masterful" to describe Macha's managerial performance, he had no intention of keeping this gum chewing assclown on board.
So what about his replacement? Bob Geren, beyond the fact that he currently is the A's bullpen coach, recently was the manager of the AAA Rivercats for a few years. But that's neither here nor there. A's fans have a pretty lengthy set of prerequisites that all new managers must have fulfilled before we'll accept you. Let's see if Geren meets the requirements.
- New A's manager requirements:
- 1) The new manager cannot be Ken Macha.
- 2) That is all.
Well, it looks like Geren passes. Welcome aboard, Bob.
