Yeah most likely the manager will be somebody internal who already knows the Beane philosophy and how things are run. Ron Washington is a good candidate, or maybe the AAA manager. I don't see the A's needing to bring somebody in from the outside.
Macha was a fine manager, he just tended towards inaction in the wrong ways (bad ump calls, pulling a pitcher in time, dealing with players)
