JABO: The Downfall of Ben Cherington

There’s a new trend in baseball: fire your outgoing GM on a Tuesday. Two weeks ago, it was Dave Dombrowski getting the axe in Detroit, and last week, the Brewers announced they were going to move Doug Melvin out of the top spot in baseball operations department. Yesterday, the Red Sox joined the Tuesday makeover party, announcing that they were bringing in Dombrowski to serve as...

Rating Doug Melvin: What Criteria Are You Using?

Yesterday’s news that Doug Melvin was stepping down as Brewers general manager at the end of the year was not much of a surprise. Most fans knew this was the final year of his contract and that it was unlikely Melvin would be extended, particularly in view of the Brewers’ poor effort on the field in the 2015 campaign.

Milwaukee Brewers: Doug Melvin thankfully out as general manager

Doug Melvin is stepping down as the Brewers’ general manager and will assume an advisory role, according to Brewers.com beat writer Adam McCalvy.

Brewers and Reds in Similar Boat After Trade Deadline

Before the season started I did a Q&A here with Brian of Reds blog Chris Sabo’s Goggles. There’s a link in that post to a companion piece at his site.  As MLB records currently stand, it looks like I was painfully overvaluing the Brewers, predicting an 80-82 finish.  Brian was more realistic in his evaluation of the Reds, predicting 74-88. Entering Wednesday’s action...

Milwaukee Brewers trade rumors: Orlando Arcia edition

As difficult as it is to admit, trading away one of the best minor leaguers in baseball sure does seem like a move Doug Melvin would make in what’s hopefully the final half of his final season as the Milwaukee Brewers’ General Manager.
