The Milwaukee Brewers closed their season with yet another loss, 5-2 to the Chicago Cubs at Miller Park on Sunday.
The Brewers dropped 22 of their last 31 games to finish 82-80.
General Manager Doug Melvin has already been told he’ll be around for the 2015 season, but team owner Mark Attanasio failed to give Ron Roenicke and his coaching staff any kind of endorsement.
Roenicke is under contract for next season, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be on the Brewers bench. In fact, there’s a good chance he won’t be. Attanasio is upset by his teams late season collapse and you get the idea that he wants somebody to pay. For 150 days, Roenicke had the Brewers in first place in the National League Central. Then the whole team went into an offensive slump that they never came back from.
The Brewers managed just two runs on five hits off of Cubs starter Jacob Turner.
Mike Fiers suffered his third straight loss, seeing his record fall to 6-5. he allowed four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven in six innings.
Ron Roenicke will work with Melvin to continue to discuss the Brewers current roster, who should return and who should be gone. After that, it’s Melvin’s turn to deal with Roenicke and his coaching staff.
