Brewers’ GM Doug Melvin and his staff held their traditional “post-mortum” news conference…reading between the lines, Melvin inferred:
- Prince and Ryan are not going anywhere
- Melvin wants to add at least 2 “established” starters (presumably, one via free agency and one via trade)
- They probably won’t re-sign Mike Cameron, Jason Kendall, or Felipe Lopez
- Rickie Weeks is not going anywhere
- Suppan is slated for the bullpen…unless he somehow has a spectacular spring, I imagine
- They’re still interested in Ben Sheets
- Alcides Escobar will play short next year and J.J. Hardy will be traded
All in all, no new news…just a reiteration of what many fans (myself included) want to hear.
Now the hard part…making it happen.
