Just finished our four hour morning show, and I would say more than half of the callers,were critical of Ron Roenicke and his managerial skills. This amazes me. How Roenicke takes this much heat,more so than last year, when the Brewers were out of any contention by Memorial Day. They are in first place,and have thus far,held off the three teams that are breathing heavily on them.
Roenicke would be the "National League Manager of the Year" , if the season were to end today. This was a big year for Roenicke and he has responded with a likely winning season despite injuries and having to mix and match his lineups nearly daily in the last several weeks. Every coach or manager in every sport makes bad decisions. Roenicke isnt deserving any of the major criticism he attracts this season.
8/23/14 This team has same attitude as manager. "ok men. even though we are choking the season away I still see in my own mind we are playing with some effort and I am fine with that"That is how this team plays
