Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio announced Saturday that the teams general manager, Doug Melvin, would return in 2015. There’s no word on manager Ron Roenicke or members of his coaching staff.
Attanasio addressed reporters in front of the Brewers dugout on Saturday at Miller Park. The Brewers owner certainly wasn’t happy after watching his team go from a certain playoff team to one that fell out of the playoffs in just over a month.
“Honestly, I haven’t slept,” said Attanasio. “Going into September, Doug and I were still working on everything we could to get the team to the playoffs. “I’m disappointed in the team, disappointed in the guys. They’re better than this and they didn’t show it.”
General manager Doug Melvin came away with his job still in tact. Whether or not Ron Roenicke will be on the bench in 2015 remains to be seen. Melvin said there’s no timetable for those decisions to be made.
Melvin plans to address all areas of the team, including the players.
Melvin said, “I want to find out who cares about winning and losing in the clubhouse. If there are guys in there that don’t care about winning, then they probably won’t be there.”
