Manager Ron Roenicke is heading into his fifth season at the helm of the Brew Crew, and after the club picked up his option for the 2016 option, the uncertainty that existed around the Milwaukee skipper has evaporated – at least to a degree.
Roenicke has compiled a 335-313 record during his time as a big league skipper – all of which has come as the leader of the Brewers. Last season, his club appeared poised to make its first postseason appearance since 2011, but a terrible final month cost them their bid at the Fall Classic.
If the club struggles early on, the front office may be tempted to go in another direction, but given the fact Roenicke’s option for next season was just picked up, he appears set – at least for the time being.
