Ken Macha is all but gone. The Brewers should hire Ryne Sandberg

Sep 28, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

File this under the “no surprises” department, but our suspicion that Ken Macha will be fired by the Brewers is being bolstered this morning by Buster Olney’s report that “unless there is a last-hour change of heart on the part of the Brewers, Manager Ken Macha will not be retained.”

I’d guess that the only last-hour change of heart that would matter is if Prince Fielder says that he’ll sign a five-year, $50 million contract with the Brewers but ONLY if Ken Macha stays. So yeah, good luck with that. Olney also repeats something else we’ve heard: Willie Randolph doesn’t want the Brewers job (we’ve heard previously that they don’t him so that’s lucky).

I have no idea who the Brewers would want, but if the Cubs hire Mike Quade, wouldn’t it be awesome if they went and poached Ryne Sandberg from the Cubs?  Nothin’ like poking a hornet’s nest, eh?

    This just in… cheese is tastey on lasagna.

    How are the Cubs a hornet’s nest? More like stirring water. Accomplishes nothing and no one cares. Maybe instead they should get a good manager.

    The press conferences for Ken Macha firings are all the same: he sits there with the resigned yet slightly startled expression of a freshly bifurcated planaria, and while extrapolating his few thoughts about being fired, announces the name of the next team that’s going to hire him to manage – not, say, unlike a planaria as well.
