PLAYERS: John Shelby
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
The entire Milwaukee Brewers coaching staff will return in 2013, manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday. The 2011 NL Central champions stumbled to a 54-66 start, but have gone 28-12 since and weren't eliminated from playoff contention until Sunday. ''This is a really good staff,'' Roenicke said, adding that continuity among coaches is important. ''Anytime you change (a coach) you have a chance for somebody to not to click with that person,'' Roenicke said. ''The longer you are with the guy and if it's the right guy, and he has a personality that he cares about the players, the players will eventually see how much he cares about them. ''They'll start to listen to him. And things usually go well.'' The coaches are Rick Kranitz, pitching; Jerry Narron, bench; Johnny Narron, hitting; Garth Iorg, first base; Ed Sedar, third base; John Shelby, outfield; and Lee Tunnell, bullpen. Tunnell joined the team when bullpen coach ...

Trying to Remember Shaun Marcum Objectively

As strange as it seems, Shaun Marcum has most likely thrown his last pitch with the Brewers. The right-hander made his last scheduled start of the season Monday night, allowing a pair of runs in six innings and striking out two. A couple weeks after the end of the World Series, he will become a free agent, and the Brewers – at least publicly – have shown absolutely no interest...

Braun finishes wild 2012 emphatically

MILWAUKEE Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun said before the season that he would prove wrong those who doubted that he was telling the truth about his overturned positive PED test this past offseason by showing them that he could put together just as good of a season on the field as he did in his NL MVP 2011 campaign. And with the Brewers' season now in the books, Braun not only...

Brewers' Roenicke: 'Everybody is coming back'

MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Brewers coaching staff didn't navigate this season without its fair share of criticism at times -- even firing bullpen coach Stan Kyles at the end of July, during the height of the bullpen's collapse. But after a triumphant run at the end of the season, Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told manager Ron Roenicke on Monday that the entire Milwaukee...

Roenicke: Brewers have few question marks

MILWAUKEE If the Milwaukee Brewers' late-season run would have never happened, if their string of wins in 24 of 30 games would have remained a pipe dream, and the Brewers would have slipped into obscurity to end the baseball season, manager Ron Roenicke isn't sure what would have happened before next season. All he's really sure of is that there would've been a...

Stinson to make first major league start

The Milwaukee Brewers' Ryan Braun was mired in controversy before this season but he'll get the chance to end it by trying to sway voters to give him the NL MVP once again. Braun will try to leave that final impression in Wednesday night's season finale against the San Diego Padres. It didn't appear that Braun would get the chance at back-to-back MVP awards in December...

Roenicke a constant in up-and-down 2012

MILWAUKEE The 162-game schedule of a major league baseball season doesn't afford many breaks to its managers. Day after day, MLB managers come to the park with little on their mind other than the success of the season at hand. That's been the case for the Brewers' Ron Roenicke this season, his second at the helm in Milwaukee. With the team in the playoff hunt until...

Brewers' rookie pitchers put positive spin on 2012 and 2013

In mid-August, the Milaukee Brewers seemed to have far more questions than answers. They were wallowing a dozen games below .500, the bullpen was a mess, right-hander Zack Greinke had been jettisoned to the Los Angeles Angels for prospects and folks rightly wondered whether the team was stepping back in a big way. Then, almost out of the blue, the Brewers started winning. The relief...

Brewers 4, Padres 3

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke played 10 rookies Tuesday night. One of them made quite a splash. Martin Maldonado hit a grand slam to lead Milwaukee to a 4-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. ''I thought we had a Nashville Sounds game,'' Maldonado said with a big smile, referring to the Brewers' Triple-A team in the Pacific Coast League. Maldonado connected...

Brewers 5, Padres 3

Carlos Gomez, Rickie Weeks and Jonathan Lucroy all hit home runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Monday night. Shaun Marcum gave up two runs and six hits in six innings as Milwaukee clinched a winning season for the second straight year. The Brewers, 12 games under .500 on Aug. 19, won 28 of the last 40 to turn the season around and make a...
