Billy Beane has yet to interview the existing coaches of the Oakland As. This normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but Billy Beane had promised to interview the coaches if Ken Macha was fired. Ken Macha was fired and Beane has yet to talk to any of the coaches.
I’m all for cleaning house, but if you’ve told someone that you’re going to interview them, you should. Professionalism hasn’t always been a Billy Beane hallmark, as he’s driven more by statistics and numbers.
Bullpen coach Bob Geren might be a candidate to replace Macha, but he’s not getting excited:
It’s still early. This just happened. I haven’t really thought about it too much. I just got home. I have been so busy trying to get my house together. It seems like it falls apart every time I leave.
Thid base coach Ron Washington is rumored to have interest from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Florida Marlins. He hasn’t heard a word from Billy Beane either.
