Macha Gone?

Note: This guest post was written by A's fan and Macha hater Mike:

Well, it might be happening again. We might be rid of Macha's sorry ass again.

We did it last year, but only for a week. It was the best week ever.

Let me just say, from the bottom of my heart: Leave. Please. Today.

Quit. Get the fuck out. We hate you and we want you gone. You took Ron Washington's job last year after you were axed and then bitched and moaned and sucked Uncle Lew's nuts until they brought you back. The fucking PIRATES didn't even want you, you asshole. What did you do then? Definitely not get out of baseball, as you should have. No, you decide to crawl back here and fuck up another postseason for us.

Now, don't get me wrong here. I don't completely blame Cacha for the trouncing we got from Detroit. I mean, who the fuck would think that a) Rogers would become Godlike in the playoffs all of a sudden, b) Everybody but Bradley would suck ass offensively, c) Chavez would not only suck ass at the plate, but in the field, and d) Jimenez would prove to be the worst player ever (okay, so we all did think that last one).

Whatever. There is still NO FUCKING EXCUSE for the way that you fucked up in Games 1 and 2. Not exactly one to get fired up and set the tone early, are you Kenny boy? As usual, you left in the starters just long enough to give up enough runs to lose. What the fuck were you thinking after Loaiza had given up 4 runs. Here, let me guess for you:

"Well, you know-uh, he hasn't-uh given up 6 yet, and he's not-uh in line for the W. I gotta-uh give him every chance to-uh get the W."

NO YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO THAT. You need to give the TEAM the chance to W. That does not mean that you leave the Tijuana Turd in the game for 2 more fucking innings so he can give up the deciding runs to Alexis fucking Gomez.

Oh well, it's in the past. You've cost us another postseason, though not as blatant as your spectacular failures in the past.

Now it's time for you to really get the fuck out. Let Bob Geren take over, or Washington, it really doesn't matter. All we ask is that we get somebody capable of actually making a timely fucking pitching change. Somebody that thinks Bobby Kielty's .965 OPS against lefties is worthy to get a goddamn start in a playoff game against (gasp) a left handed pitcher. Somebody that says to themself, "Hey Fucktard (that's you), D'Angelo Jimenez is quite possibly the worst player in organized baseball. If the plan is to replace Ellis with defense, maybe we can go ahead and try Kiger out since Jimenez can neither field a ball or throw one 90 feet as required when turning a double play."

Hell, somebody that doesn't make players on the team go straight to Billy and tell him that if you're not gone, they don't want to come back next year. Dude, even Adam "One Plate Appearance Every Three Weeks -- Maybe" Melhuse hates you:

"For the last two years, our relationship has deteriorated to nothing. He didn't even speak to me for well over the last month. For me, as a backup, all I want is communication. Every other coach, I get along with great, but with Macha, it is not an exaggeration to say he doesn't speak to me -- not 'Hi,' not anything. "It's tough to go to work every day knowing you're working for someone who doesn't think much of you as a player and on top of that, doesn't even acknowledge you." Wow. So, lets get this straight. You won't even fucking talk to the backup catcher, and yet you won't sit Kendall because he might get upset. Antonio Perez didn't even get 100 ABs this season. Granted, he hit like shit, but what can you expect from a guy who only plays every 2 weeks at most? So basically, with those 2, and Scott Sauerbeck, the A's played with a 22 man roster this season. Because you don't use guys you don't like. God I hate you. Seriously, we need a person that's actually going to not be a fucking total moron in the dugout.
That person is not you, asshole. Please just go away. This team could do nothing else in the offseason and win at least five more games next year just because you're not asleep in the goddamn dugout.

Anonymous Anonymous said... has updated the article and two sources with the A's have confirmed Macha will be fired later this afternoon. Somebody needs to take a shovel to his thick head on his way out the door so he's incapable of finding his way back!! See ya Captain Clueless!!!!!

"Mike and the Mad Dog" on the radio were saying that the team doesn't want to lose Ron Washington, and that influenced the decision. Sweet.

Oh man! This feels almost as good as if the A's would have advanced to the WS! I'm delirous, I don't think I can work anymore today.

What's to become of I wonder?

Just pray that Billy doesn't do something really stupid like bring in Dusty Baker, Buck Showalter or pry Grady Little from LA...

Thank FREAKING God.......Why the HELL Bean let him back in the first place is beyond me. They don't make cough drops strong enough to keep Cacha from choking. Now that's it's offical, I have a little message for you Kenny Boy: YOU ARE THE WORST FUCKING MANAGER EVER !!!!!!!!!! And that says a lot when compaired to the likes of Art Howe.....The terminal LOSER !!!!

Wow, I didn't see this coming at all. Someone just told me about it, so I checked in. I guess I'm still in a state of disbelief, but this is excellent news.

Congrats Greg and Roman, it only took 1 more year, but its done!

Awesome article. About damn time! I really really really hope we give Washington a chance. If we do not then someone else will. From what I hear he is the most well liked person in the organization by the players. We cannot afford to lose him. He deserves a chance. Please give it to him Billy!

Firing Ken Macha was the worst decision in baseball, other than the Marlins firing Joe Girardi. Since when is winning a sin? And since when do you have kiss everyone's ass with whom you work with? Ron Washington will be in so far over his head next year, especially without Zito, that you fucking assholes will start a fire Ron Washington site and Bring Back Macha one as well. All you motherfuckers suck nigger dick, especially Mike.

All I did the past 2 years is write my local sports section of our local paper. My only topic, take this meek mindless moronic midget and tell him hit and run and squeeze are not things you do to your kids, but actually acts of agression in a game called BASEBALL!! No Ken , this isn't Tee Ball! You don't go over and pick the kid up and say "Nice Try" when the ump just screwed him out of a great play, you fire on his ass!!! Make your players, your fans, and those who pay you, see you give some sort of shit! But you'll never understand that, its "Not Your Style". Thats not "Style" Ken thats "Chicken Shit"!

By the way, its nice to hear you "Took the High Road". Which part was the High Road? Was it crying bout Billy realizing just how retarded you are, and canning you? Or was it when you complained about how the players said so many "Misleading" things about you? Thats not the "High Road" thats complaining, just like us fans and most players did for the past 2 years! Get out! Go Home! Do me a favor, try coaching your daughter's softball team. I want all of her friends to scratch their heads and wonder how you ever were allowed around players that weren't in the "Special Olympics"!

Ken Macha has compiled a 275-211 record in three seasons as manager of the Oakland A's, which is the fifth best record in baseball over the last three years ...

And the problem is....what?

Please -- clue me in, as I'm a Cubs fan and from where I sit, this record looks pretty good to me.

Yes, smooth jazz man, a 275-211 record is pretty good. But the # of wins the A's compiled wasn't the problem, its the lack of playoff wins. Macha is not smart, and gutless to match. People don't want to play for him because he's a monotone pinhead with the social skills of a wet rag.

PS "smooth jazz man" is a pretty creepy name you weirdo.

PPS Lets all think positive thoughts that Wash will get the manager job.

Good luck next year Oakland, and please keep playing Kendall so he can fuck up every every time he's at bat...pretty much explains the reason why the Pirates got rid of him. Now on to Melhuse...suck it up fucker. Keep crying to the newspapers how Kenny didn't say "hi" to you at all the last two seasons. I thought there was no crying in baseball?

He wasn't much of an analyst for the BoSox on NESN either. Talk about snooze factor. I haven't seen him on in a while, so I think they bagged him, but I can't find any confirmation.

I remember his first broadcast, and Remy mentioned that this isn't Big League managing (being an analyst). Idiot Macha ripped Remy by saying something to the effect that he's never managed in the bigs, so how would he know. I do believe that was the first nail in Macha's coffin. Remy is a GOD to NESN. Play by play guys have come and gone for Sox NESN broadcasts, but Remy as the color guy has been there for a loooong time.

Well it looks like the Brewers are about to hire him. Judging by what I am reading here it sounds like a sad day.
