This is the End


My only friend, the end.

Thanks for the repressed memories, Ken. But this was supposed to be it for you. The end of the line. And we wouldn't have to deal with your lineups, your lack of passion, your painfully unlistenable radio interviews, your in-game naps, or your complete inability to ever once put your finger on the pulse of the ballgame. Not that I don't like a manager with cameltoe, it's just that...well....uh....fuck you, you suck.

You singlehandedly cost us the playoffs the last two seasons, but the silver lining was that you would be going somewhere else next year (preferably floating somwhere in the East River). Or you could just go back to the place where you were born: Moron-ville, Pennsylvania.

Seriously, how perfect is it that you were born in Moron-ville? I think it's perfect.

What's that? Oh. Well, you're still a moron. And if there were a Moron-Ville, I guarantee you'd have been born there.

Anyway, this was supposed to be it. You would be gone, and Oakland fans might be able to reasonably think about making the playoffs for a change. And now we have confirmation that the Oakland front office has made you an offer that should be thrown in the refuse.

Let me make one thing perfectly clear: This franchise will not make the playoffs as long as you are the manager. Your in-game management is a joke. Your leadership is even worse. And your lineups are the equivalent of eating too much chili when you can't get to a toilet and you accidentally get diarrhea all over your undies. You cost us wins. Because you're an asshole.

So do us a favor. Don't accept the offer. Ruin another franchise for a change. Make this be the end. You're not wanted here.

Asshole.

Perhaps the Pirates will be the next team to suffer under Macha's tenure.

I have to disagree with you on everything. Having worked for the Oakland A's for 2 years I know how the team, owners, and management works out there. Oakland is the one of the cheapest teams in major league baseball and with that comes the coming and going of many great players. Ken Macha isn't the one on the field making the plays or swinging the bats. When a club isn't willing to pay for decent players how do you expect a team to do well. Teams need to have chemistry and if the team is constantly changing then they never have the time to build that chemistry which is crucial. Billy Beane thinks he has this great ability to take no name players and turn them into something and for the most part he has. The only problem with that is you groom them into what you want and need as a team then once they make a name for themselves you let them go because you can get some big bucks for them and up your own salary. That's wrong and not how a team should be managed. He should be looking out for the best interest of the team not himself. Beane is a great guy personally but most of his business decisions are ridiculous. I know Ken Macha personally and he wants nothing but the best for that team and did an amazing job with what he has been given. When you take away your two best starting pitchers, an AL MVP, and two of your best outfielders you are left with not a whole lot to work with. I will agree that most of the time the manager is to blame but in this situation you are dead wrong. And Beane didn't get rid of Macha because he was a bad manager. It was because once again Beane is a cheap bastard and wouldn't pay a salary which is competitive for that industry. So if anyone is to blame in this situation it is Billy Beane and the cheap owners of the team. Go Oakland and Good Luck to Ken Macha and where ever he may end up!

Oh you know Macha personally? Bully for you! Do me a big favor and pass along this message - Never fucking pinch hit for your top two RBI men in the bottom of the 9th while only down by 4 runs in a penant race in the middle of september, you quitter! Fuck you very much.

P.S. - You might want to consider watching a game once in awhile.
