The Milwaukee Brewers hired former New York Mets manager Willie Randolph as bench coach on Saturday . . .To review the bidding, Ken Macha was hired by a team that, despite the loss of their two best pitchers, will probably be expected to do big things next year, was given a shorter than usual contract, and now he has been given two coaches who probably still think they should be managers.
. . . "We are very pleased to add Willie to the organization as he brings recent National League expertise and success to our coaching staff," general manager Doug Melvin said. "His reputation as a player is a quality that will be valuable in his teaching and coaching of our talented young team. Willie is a professional both on and off the field."
Looks like it will be nothin' but smooth sailing in Milwaukee next season!
