Steady as she goes, Ken


Thank fucking God we've got Ken's steady hand leading our ship (that's our ship up above...the one sinking). I would hate to think what might happen if we had a Cap'n who perhaps thought about pinch running for Frank Thomas in the 8th inning of a game we trailed by 6 runs. I don't even want to know. Luckily, we've got Ken to make sure he runs the bases in a game hopelessly out of hand. And who could have ever predicted that leaving him in a game that had been long since decided could only have detrimental results, like oh, say, Frank pulling a quadriceps?

So the Macha count continues. So far this season he has cost us four games, Frank Thomas, and maybe Huston Street. And his lineups remain a confusing mystery to all but the criminally insane. That's some pretty impressive work by old Kenny. Pretty impressive indeed.

Steady as she goes, captain. Steady as she goes.

So, where's this great pitching staff that Billy Bean-o promised us?

Oh, I know where it is.

It's in Atlanta (Hudson) and St. Louis (Mulder).

And today it was even in Toronto (Ted Lilly).

Bean-o's stuff stinks!

Even if Oakland had the best pitchers in the MLB, it wouldn't matter. As long as the white haired assface is at the helm of the ship, sitting there dozing off and chewing his gum, we can forget about having a team that can truly contend. Macha has a loser mentality, and is incapable of making common sense baseball decisions. I'd of forgiven Beane for trading away Hudson, Mulder and Lilly in a heartbeat if he wouldn't of resigned Macha in october.

From the newspaper:
*****
Perez's slow going: With Eric Chavez still out with an intestinal ailment, Marco Scutaro was at third rather than Antonio Perez, who has yet to get a hit and hasn't looked sharp defensively.

"He's not moving around third like we'd hoped,'' Macha said, then added, "He's in a tough spot, but in the major leagues, you're expected to play. There are no excuses. He's been doing all the work, taking extra hitting and extra grounders, but the bottom like is production, wins and losses.''
*****

Seriously, if thats the philosophy, how does it explain Scutaro playing? Or Kendall? Or Kielty? How does it explain Macha still managing?

Let's see, our #4 hitter and #5 hitter are out, so who does Macha pick to bat 3rd? The team's AVE, HR, and RBI leader? Nay, 'tis Kotsay. Then surely the team leader in nearly every offensive category is batting cleanup, right? RIGHT?

Fuck Macha. And how about Keisler pitching in an 0-1 game? Pathetic.
