If that name makes you do a double take, its because his brother is already the Brewers Bench Coach (he of the calligraphy lineup cards). The hitting coach spot was vacated when Dale Sveum was hired to be the manager of the Chicago Cubs.

With all the other hullaballoo, I wasn't sure where to include these, so here's a few more quick hits on the Brewers.*We declined our 2009 option on Craig Counsell.
