    Macha Fired in Oakland.....again

    Per ESPN.

    How about that?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Whoa. Maybe I've been out of the loop but I really didn't see that coming.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I think it was more on how he ran the clubhouse and his relationship with players and management than it was on how their season went...

    Wow. That came out of nowhere. I had not even heard a rumor that he was in danger out losing his job.

    All about expectations. We weren't expected to contend or be even close to 500, the A's were expected to do alot, and the GM and owners felt they didn't do as much as they should.

    Macha might look good in Red.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    The A's kicked the snot out of the Twins, they just ran into the Tigers at the wrong time. Who ever wins the NLCS is probably going to get steamrolled by Detroit.

    If the firing wasn't performance related I would think it would have come earlier in the season.

    A few of the A's blogs out there seem to suggest that Macha had zero communication between himself and his players, and that this was a long time coming.

    I would think this is more of a communication breakdown issue rather than a performance related firing.

    If they made it all the way to the ALCS then how important really is communication?

    But using that logic can't the A's make it without Macha?


    I'd take him though. I'd take anyone available right now over Narron, really.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
