Brewers Decline Option On Macha

MONDAY: The Brewers announced today via press release that they declined Macha's 2011 option.

SUNDAY: Ken Macha informed the Associated Press tonight that the Brewers told him they will not be exercising his club option for 2011.  Earlier today, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported the same through a source, saying an official announcement should come tomorrow.  Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported two weeks ago that Macha was "almost certain" to be let go.

Macha posted a 157-167 record in two seasons as the Brewers' manager.  Haudricourt notes in his blog post that Macha had limited interaction with his players, partially due to the generation gap.
