The Brewers are still doing their homework on their four managerial candidates, owner Mark Attansaio told Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel .
In an e-mail Attansio said the Brewers are "finalizing the collection of information and discussions" about their next manager.
The Brewers are down to four candidates, Bobby Velentine, Bob Melvin, Joey Cora and Ron Reonicke.
Haudricourt writes that general manager Doug Melvin is a "backer" of Valentine, but he'll cost the most.
Also, Journal Sentinel business writer Don Walker wrote that Valentine's contract with ESPN stipulates he must give the news to ESPN first if he accepts a managerial job.
