Ron Roenicke and the Career Afterlives of Fired Managers

As the reader will likely already know, Ron Roenicke was relieved of his managerial duties with the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. Nor was this development entirely surprising. After a successful first year with the club in 2011 — a year that ended with a trip to the National League Championship Series — Roenicke’s Brewers were […]

The Case for Trading Jonathan Lucroy

The Brewers season is over. Already a mediocre team that needed to catch a lot of breaks in order to contend, Milwaukee has gotten off to an 8-18 start, watched two of their best players end up on the disabled list, and on Sunday night, they fired their manager. They currently stand 11.5 games behind […]

''It's a very special day,'' said Counsell, who took over for Ron Roenicke, who was fired Sunday night. ''It was a blur a...

Firing Roenicke now brings Brewers' decisions of past into question

If you retrace the Brewers’ steps, both major decisions they made in retaining Ron Roenicke as manager were defensible. They chose not to fire Roenicke after last season’s 9-22 finish, giving him the benefit of the doubt after the team arguably over-achieved for the first five months. They then exercised Roenicke’s option for 2016 in March, seeking to avoid the perception that...

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

New Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell took over the helm on a tough day Monday, as his club had to face the phenomenal Clayton Kershaw. Somehow, the Brewers got it done with a miraculous offensive burst in the eighth inning, and the team secured a 4-3 win over the Dodgers to give Counsell a win on his first day as a manager. Astoundingly, the Brewers have now won four of...

Brewers 4, Dodgers 3: Clayton Kershaw was great, until he wasn’t

It isn’t often Clayton Kershaw is cruising through seven innings only to have the Dodgers lose the game, but that happened on Monday in Miller Park as the Brewers won 4-3. A 3-run eighth propelled Milwaukee to victory. Kershaw looked like vintage Kershaw through seven innings, as he needed just 76 pitches to get to that point. He ran into a spot of bother in the eighth. He...

Firing a Manager Brings Out the Worst in (Some) Fans

I’m generally not a fan of firing managers/coaches in any sport.  I’m skeptical that “shaking things up” is the best way to turn around a losing team…but it certainly seems to be a common practice, so what the hell do I know?  I’m not sure what Ron Roenicke could have done to stop Kyle Lohse from giving up homers in every start, or to get Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez...
