After a 51-32 start to the season the Brewers finished the year 31-48, leading to speculation that manager Ron Roenicke’s job could be in jeopardy.
Brewers owner Mark Attanaaio has, so far at least, avoided giving a firm “yes” regarding Roenicke returning in 2015, but has said general manager Doug Melvin will be back.
Here’s what Roenicke told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com about his unknown status:
I’ve worked my tail off. I did the best that I thought I could do. I’m always wanting to do things better and get better at what I do, and sometimes it helps to have conversations afterward on what myself of as a group that we need to do better. You do the best you can do, and you know when you’re a manager, that sometimes if it doesn’t go well, that you’re the guy that’s going to get blamed for it.
McCalvy has a lot more quotes from Roenicke, who has a 335-313 (.517) record in four seasons as the Brewers’ manager.
