CRAIG COUNSELL RUMORS

Scenes from Brewers On Deck 2016

Although the Brewers are at the beginning of what we suspect will be an arduous rebuilding process, you wouldn’t know it if you attended the annual On Deck event yesterday. I’m not licensed to estimate crowd sizes, but yesterday’s turnout seemed on par with the previous two years, which included free admission in 2014 and heightened expectations in 2015 after a surprisingly...

Craig Counsell on Decisions and Collaboration

The Milwaukee Brewers have reportedly hired David Stearns to be their new general manager. What that means for Craig Counsell is yet to be determined. The 45-year-old Counsell has been the club’s manager since May, and his contract extends through the 2017 season. On the surface, Counsell and the Harvard-educated Stearns look to be a good fit. Counsell was an accounting major at...

Brewers to replace Doug Melvin as general manager

By Dave Cameron The Brewers announced Tuesday that Doug Melvin is going to “transition into an advisory role” with the team, which is probably the nicest language you can use to fire someone.

Counsell gets first win as manager, is the right man for the job
