One of the pieces still missing from the Brewers was a solid 8th inning set-up man to get the game to John Axford in the 9th. Today, the Brewers signed veteran reliever Takaski Saito to fill that role. The signing has been confimed by Doug Melvin but won't be announced by the Brewers until next week because their offices are closed for the holiday. Rumors are that Saito will earn betwe...

It's being reported that the Brewers will be sending their #1 prospect to Toronto for starting pitcher Shaun Marcum. Marcum was 13-8 with a 3.64 earned run average in 31 starts last season. He was a middling 87-90 MPH fast ball and relies on an above average changeup as well as serviceble slider and curveball to finesse batters, not over-power them. He averaged 7.3 K/9 innings in 2010. Lawrie, ...

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 ...

From Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt's Twitter: "Brewers GM Doug Melvin just denied the report that Bob Brenly will be the next manger. Said he hasn't interviewed anybody. So false alarm."

W hen one of Macha's main problems was his inability to be close to Braun and Fielder, I'm thinki...

With his $10 million contract hanging around our necks, Doug Melvin and Mark Attanasio seemed to be hoping for a miracle resurgence from Jeff Suppan this season. When it didn't happen, they didn't seem to know what to do with themselves - or him. Already stuck paying for Braden Looper and Bill Hall's contract while they're no longer on the team, the Brewers seemed loathe to admit to another wrong ...
