Brewers extend GM Doug Melvin and manager Ron Roenicke
Brewers owner Mark Attanasio isn't blaming the team's slow start and injury troubles on manager Ron Roenicke or general manager Doug Melvin, as the team announced contract extensions for both.
Melvin was extended through the 2015 season and Roenicke through 2014, with a team option for 2015. Melvin also got a new title, from Executive Vice President and General Manager to President of Baseball Operations - General Manager, for what it's worth.
Melvin is in his 10th season with the Brewers, Roenicke his second.
