Add Ken Macha to the list that includes Dusty Baker, Joe Girardi,
Felipe Alou, Frank Robinson,
Joe Torre and Buck Showalter of potential 2007 TV commentators. Billy Beane refused to blame Macha, and then turned around and did just that by saying, "But that disconnect was there and we needed to do something as soon as possible."
Macha had two years and two million left on his contract but Beane waited only two days after the A’s got swept by the Tigers in the ALCS to drop the axe. The story reports Macha was already in hot water due to his relationships with the players prior to their ALCS exit.
Meanwhile, Lou’s a Cubbie.
