Another glimmer of hope?
That's what the headline at JSOnline says anyway. Right now I can't get it to load. I'm hearing it's Sveum for the rest of the season. I wish it was Kapler. Or Harvey Kuehn's corpse.
Update: It's loading now. Here's the press release. Sveum is the manager with Simmons staying on in an advisory role.
Update #2: Here's an espn article on the firing. It includes this quote from a Brewers player that wished to remain anonymous *cough* Braun *cough*:
"I think we have sucked in September so far... And I don't think it's his fault that we can't hit or pitch right now, but something had to change."
Update #3: Tom H. think Mark A. pulled the trigger on this one. I think that's probably true.
Update #4: Robin Yount will be the new bench coach for the remainder of the season.
