The Brewers made an official announcement today hiring ex-manager Ken Macha. Macha, who last managed the Oakland Athletics, will take over for at least the next two years.

The Brewers are in great shape to be a contender in the years to come, but they need to pursue Sabathia and/or another pitcher.
