Brewers Owner: No Staff Changes Imminent

Brewers owner Mark Attanasio says that GM Doug Melvin has total job security and that manager Ken Macha will not be let go on Monday, writes Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.  Monday is an off-day for the club and it has been widely speculated as an opportunity for Milwaukee to make some changes.

Attanasio explained that Macha's fate is up to Melvin as he trusts the judgment of his GM.  The owner made it absolutely clear that his GM will be staying put:

"Doug Melvin is very, very secure.  You're not going to see any GM changes here."

On Thursday, Melvin told a local radio station that he doesn't "see any reason" to fire Macha.  Milwaukee is 16-26 heading into their afternoon showdown with the Twins.

Melvin and Macha may be secure, but I hope their staff is not. Definitely need to shake some things up with their product on the field. I say start with getting rid of Suppan.

If there is one person that needs to stay, it’s Dale Sveum. He’s been a very good hitting coach so far.

Anyway, as far as the actual team goes, yeah, toss Suppan (easier said than done). If we can get someone to take Hoffman and Davis off our hands, so much the better. I think Corey Hart could end up being a nice trade chip, maybe get a decent starter or prospect, or something like that. Prince is going, and I think we all understand that. The bigger question is, who to? Red Sox? Yankees? Mariners? (I personally like a trade to the Mariners)

I would like Ed Sedar to stay also.

Oh yeah, forgot about Eddie for a second there. He does his job really well. Willie Randolph, most likely, would be the manager. But, if he would go replacing Sveum and Sedar, then I’d want Sveum to be the manager.

Just out of curiousity, what kind of a return would you like to see us get from the Mariners?

I sort of like the Yankees idea, but i’m not sure exactly what the Brewers should want back. We are talking about someone who hit 46 homers and 141 rbi’s last year, so it should be a carefully crafted return. I like Hughes alot, Montero would be nice (but not sure about him), and i think a move to the NL Central could really let Joba shine as well.

Out of the Mariners? I’ve got a plan for that, actually. Fielder for SP Doug Fister, SP Michael Pineda, SP Mauricio Robles, and OF Carlos Peguero.

As for the Yankees, I like Montero as a replacement first baseman, and I like both Hughes and Joba.

Keep dreaming, there’s zero chance the yanks would trade Joba or Phil.
