Tactically he's probably on par with just about any other manager. Give him a good team and he'll have a good record. But I think there are some serious questions concerning how he can manage personalities in the clubhouse. Is that a deal breaker? I don't know that it is. But a Macha-led team might have a harder time getting much sought after free agents they target to sign.
Average 92 wins per year for the Reds and I won't care if they flippin try to kill him every day...
