MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports that Brewers GM Doug Mevin, manager Ken Macha, and pro scouting head Dick Groch spoke for nearly two hours in the lobby of the team's hotel yesterday.
"We covered just about everything," Macha said. "The bench, position players, starting pitchers, bullpen."
"Let me put it this way: [Melvin] is keenly aware of avenues that would make our ballclub stronger," Macha said. "But almost every Major League team is still either buyers or they consider themselves [contenders]. There's no fits, like a jigsaw puzzle, where 'You guys need X, we've need Y. You have Y, we have X. Let's do it.' There's not a whole lot of that."
We hear lots of stories like this around this time of year, that most teams are still trying decide to buy or sell and that it's slowing down the trade market. The Brewers were one of the clubs that attended Pedro Martinez's workout yesterday, but McCalvy says Melvin has consistently downplayed his interest in the righthander,
