Brewer Updates

Mat Gamel earned "Topp" honors in being selected as the Topps Minor League Player of the year. This depsite a drastic slip in his batting in the second half. It was his first half of the season that sent shock waves through the minor league ranks.

Joe Dillon is off the 40-man roster to make room for McGehee.

Pitching coach Mike Maddux is being targeted by the Texas Rangers to come on board their coaching staff. If Maddux did jump ship, this could have a slight effect on CC resigning because he connected well with the Mike. That being said, I could imagine the Brewers courting
Carl Willis of the Cleveland Indians. As the pitching coach for the Tribe, he delivered them their first ERA Title since the 90's in 2005. Granted, he's been with the Indian's organization for the past 10 seasons, 5 of those years in his current position. This is the guy who developed CC and helped Cliff Lee reach his prime this past season. He would do wonders for our young pitching staff and help us in the pursuit of resigning CC (which is a long-shot).
