In kind of an interesting in retrospect kind of way, Brewers manager Doug Melvin (picutred, right) revealed the eight candidates he interviewed for the managerial job.
According to Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel , in addition to the man they did hire, Ron Roenicke (pictured, left), the team also considered Bobby Valentine, Bob Melvin, Joey Cora, Don Wakamatsu, Tim Wallach, Eric Wedge and Pat Listach.
Melvin -- the GM, not the candidate -- also said the Brewers never made an offer to Valentine, as was reported by several national reporters.
"It never got that far," Melvin said. "We did not make him an offer."
Haudricourt also said Melvin told him his new manager, Roenicke, will meet with the team's pitching coach Rick Peterson, who is under contract for next season. If the two don't hit it off, the Brewers could still make a change.
"I want to wait until Ron sits down with him and see what happens," Melvin said.
