Brewers Make Offer To Craig Counsell

3:46pm: The Brewers made an initial contract proposal to Counsell today, according to's Adam McCalvy.

9:48am: The Brewers plan to present an offer to utility infielder Craig Counsell, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.  The interest is mutual, but ESPN's Buster Olney tweeted back on November 16th that at least a dozen teams are eyeing Counsell and a multi-year deal is possible.

Counsell, 39, hit .285/.357/.408 in 459 plate appearances this year while playing second base, shortstop, and third base and earning $1MM.  If Alex Cora gets $2MM, Counsell's agent Barry Meister should seek at least that much.
