Brewers to, ah ... ah, name, ah ... {chew, chew} Ken, ah, Macha, ah ... manager

Noon Pacific Time press conference scheduled by the Brewers to announce the hiring of former A's manager Ken Macha as the new Milwaukee skipper:

they will name Macha, 58, as the 16th skipper in club history.



I had forgotten (or never known) about this:

Macha passed on the Brewers' offer in October 2002 to remain in Oakland



Congrats to Ken for rejoining the ranks of the MLB managerial brotherhood. Here's hoping he never has to pull a Milton on CC.
