Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin Gives the Brewers A Chance To Still Make Playoffs
Clearly, Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin read my post this morning on Ned Yost and decided to wait no more.
Yost has been fired and will be replaced by third base coach Dale Sveum.
As outlined this morning, the Brewers had a 5 1/2 game lead at the start of the month, and while the Cubs opened the door to the NL Central lead, Milwaukee has lost three of 14 games in the first half of September. Worst of all, the Brewers were swept over the weekend to Philadelphia which has now left both of those teams tied for the NL Wild Card.
Milwaukee begins a three game series at Wrigley Field Tuesday night with CC Sabathia facing off against Ryan Dempster. A great opportunity for interim manager Sveum to change the team's poor attitude and momentum.
Will the Brewers end their 26-year playoff drought now that they'd rid themselves of Yost?
