Two notable rumblings from Brewerland:
1) Kenny Macha seems to be leading the managerial race.
- Personally, I'd prefer Brenly. He's an "NL guy" who knows what it takes to win a World Series. I heard Mark Grace on the radio describe Brenly as "the opposite of Ned Yost...." That's good enough for me. Plus, as mentioned in this post, those A's managers just sit in the dugout and press whatever button the sabermetrics say works the best. Not a lot of real managing come out of the Athletics dugout.
2) Brewers will listen to offeres for Prince
- This is the first time it's been stated by the Brewers. Ever since he turned down contract extension talks, you knew it would come to this...the primary reason: Scott Boras. He's not gonna resign with Milwaukee. No chance. It would be tough to trade Prince, as he carried the Brewers for stretches late last year. But I'm not opposed to it. I'll stick with the mantra of "He's only gonna get fatter, and he's got DH written all over him."
