After a career that spanned parts of 16 major league seasons, Craig Counsell hung up his spikes and was announced as the newest member of the Brewers front office. Counsell now carries the title Special Assistant to the GM. Both he and Doug Melvin insist that this will not be a ceremonial position for Counsell, who said he hopes this is the start of his grooming to one day be a GM. For a skinny ki...
