A report by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday says Brewres G.M. is considering a few other candidates besides interim skipper Dale Sveum. A few names mentioned in the article are Bob Brenly (Cubs announcer, won a World Series with Arizona), Mike Hargrove (5 division titles and 2 WS appearances while with Cleveland, but quit Seattle mid-season for "burnout" UGH!), Willie Randolph (just fired from the Mets this season), Davey Johnson (Won a WS with the Mets, won division titles with Cincy! and Baltimore, bronze medal in 2008 Olympics) and Bobby Valentine (took Mets to WS, coaching in Japan right now). These guys aren't necessarily on the list that Melvin is considering, but just some names that are available.
The key work is "NAMES." I said this on-air last week to Jeff Thelen...I don't think the Brewers will go with Sveum (although he'd come with a cheap price tag.) They can now bring in a "big-name" manager with more/better experience. It's an attractive job right now. And a big-name could help with free agents! Think about it. How many free agents will be chomping at the bit to work with Dale Sveum, or Ned Yost, or Davey Lopes for that matter.
