It's the third time in about a month that we have a rumor that the Brewers have hired a manager. This time the source is a writer for a Chicago newspaper who's last claim to fame was a Twitter meltdown on all things Minnesotan. Once again it's sources saying the hire has been made, so take it with a grain of salt. Roenicke has been with the Angels for the past 11 seasons and has never managed ...
