Brewers Considering Options

Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin said he will explore the market for open managers for the 2009 season. "I owe it to myself and the organization to make sure we're not overlooking somebody else out there," said Melvin. There are several solid candidates available, aside from Svuem, who would really help the Brewers. It would be worth the Brewers while to contact the Dodgers about Don Mattingly, consider Larry Bowa, Buck Showalter, Leo Mazzone, and Alan Trammell about the possible opening. While Svuem is familiar with the team, he lacks the experience that all these guys have.

The Brewers are expected to make a decision shortly after the World Series so they can use him in negotiations with players.
