Report: Brewers owner heading to Milwaukee to meet with team officials
As the Brewers continue their franchise-worst start to a season, CBS Sports is reporting that team owner Mark Attanasio is on his way to Milwaukee to meet with team officials.
The report indicates that Attanasio, who lives in Los Angeles, decided in the last few days to fly to Milwaukee and that Brewers general manager Doug Melvin suggested that Attanasio \"wants to reinforce the notion he's engaged and won't abandon the team at this difficult time.\"
The owner's arrival sparks speculation about changes that may be made, including the job security of manager Ron Roenicke. But the CBS Sports report cites Melvin as saying the team has bigger issues to deal with, and that he and Attanasio have not talked about Roenicke's future.
Going back to the last month of the 2014 season, the Brewers are just 11-34 in their last 45 games. Last year, they spent 150 days in first place in the National League Central before that late season tailspin cost them a playoff spot.
The Brewers continue their week-long homestand with two more games against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon before the St. Louis Cardinals come to town for a three-game weekend series.
