Craig Counsell said : "I enjoyed my time there. Obviously Alex Cora was incredible to play for, and learned a lot from him that I can move forward in my career and take with me. “But yeah, I was little bit surprised when it happened, but once I heard that hey, you were traded to the Brewers, I was like ‘Great, that’s where I wanted to be.'” Milwaukee is happy to have Renfroe, too. The reigning NL Central champions are counting on the 30-year-old Mississippi native to help replace the production that departed when Avisaíl García left for the Marlins and Eduardo Escobar went to the Mets in free agency. Renfroe, who broke into the majors with San Diego in 2016, hit .259 with 31 homers and a career-high 96 RBIs in his lone season with Boston, helping the Red Sox get to the AL Championship Series. He also had a career-high 16 outfield assists, tied for the major league lead. Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said Renfroe has fit right in, and he marveled at the slugger's power. “He could win a home run derby. I mean, it's easy for him to do it," “He doesn't have to put a lot of effort into it and it can go a long way” External link

Craig Counsell said : ”reflect the reduced risk of infection and transmission for fully vaccinated individuals". Charlie Riedel/AP The Milwaukee Brewers have joined the list of Major League Baseball teams to have at least 85% of players, coaches and Tier 1 employees vaccinated. MLB announced before the season it would relax pandemic-related protocols for teams that reached that 85% threshold for vaccination. Manager Craig Counsell and pitcher Brandon Woodruff talked during the Brewers’ pregame Zoom sessions with reporters about how their protocols had been relaxed. One of the major changes for teams that reach the 85% vaccination mark is they are no longer required to wear masks in the dugout. “There are some smaller things, but that’s the big one for us that comes with the 85%,” “I think it’s a nice little perk now that we get to enjoy and feel a little bit more normal in the dugout” External link

Craig Counsell said ( about Craig Counsell ) : "I like it because it shortens games,” Counsell said. “It also saves players’ jobs and needless roster maneuvering, often times with players who perform well in the game, which I think is really unfair. We were at four hours going into the 10th inning (on Opening Day). That was enough. That’s as simply as I can state it”. Counsell has been consistent in his support of not just that rule change but most of the tweaks Major League Baseball has put in place over the past year. Some have come as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic while others are attempts to speed up or add action to games. Whatever the reasons, Counsell believes it's important not only for MLB to try different things but also for fans to give those things a chance. “I think we’re getting there, getting our head around that it’s OK for us to change some rules," "The game will still go on and we can improve it, actually. The game’s not going to fall apart by making some changes to it. I think our nature in this game is we’re so cautious with this stuff.

Drew Smyly said ( about Craig Counsell ) : “You've got to be able to have a short memory, stick to the plan and maintain your confidence,” "When you lose your confidence, that's when things start spiraling out of control in this game”. Milwaukee has lost nine of 12. The Brewers had some tough luck Friday as they hit several balls that were caught on the warning track. The Brewers are 1 of 19 with runners in scoring position over their last two games. “We hit them hard,” manager Craig Counsell said. “The timing of our offense is just not there as far as sequencing the hits. That’s really how we won a bunch of games early. We didn’t get a ton of hits but just sequenced them really well, and got them in the right spots”. The Braves capitalized on Brewers starter Adrian Houser’s wildness to pull ahead for good in the third. After Houser (3-4) walked the bases loaded, Austin Riley hit a two-out shot that appeared to go off the pitcher’s right leg before heading into center field for a two-run single that gave Atlanta a 2-1 lead. Houser entered the night having walked just five batters over his last five starts, but he matched that total Friday while lasting a season-low three innings. His five walks were a career high in 37 starts. “Just a rough night,” Houser said. “I didn’t feel real well out there. I felt a little weird on the mound and obviously couldn’t get things going" External link

Craig Counsell said ( about Craig Counsell ) : "I like it because it shortens games,” Counsell said. “It also saves players’ jobs and needless roster maneuvering, often times with players who perform well in the game, which I think is really unfair. We were at four hours going into the 10th inning (on Opening Day). That was enough. That’s as simply as I can state it”. Counsell has been consistent in his support of not just that rule change but most of the tweaks Major League Baseball has put in place over the past year. Some have come as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic while others are attempts to speed up or add action to games. Whatever the reasons, Counsell believes it's important not only for MLB to try different things but also for fans to give those things a chance. “I think we’re getting there, getting our head around that it’s OK for us to change some rules," "The game will still go on and we can improve it, actually. The game’s not going to fall apart by making some changes to it. I think our nature in this game is we’re so cautious with this stuff. It’s hard to believe we’re gonna make a mistake because we’re so cautious with how we approach change" External link

Craig Counsell said ( about Craig Counsell ) : "I honestly think that everyone’s done everything they possibly can to stay in shape, from pitchers throwing and hitters hitting. But there’s only so many swings in a cage and so many, you know, non-adrenaline bullpens you can throw. “There’s a reason why we have six weeks of spring training, in a typical spring training”. There is particular concern for starting pitchers, who take great care in building up their arms over an extended period. That's one reason why active rosters will be 30 players during the first two weeks of the season, 28 during the second two weeks and 26 after that. Brewers manager Craig Counsell said they could begin the year with as many as 17 pitchers. “We have a bunch of guys that are much further along than I anticipated," “So, I’m not as concerned about that as I would have originally thought when we departed in mid-March. They’ve all been throwing on a regular schedule. They’ve all been throwing to hitters. Now, the challenge when we ramp up intensity, what does recovery look like? That’s probably the thing I’ll think about the most” External link

Craig Counsell said : "I enjoyed my time there. Obviously Alex Cora was incredible to play for, and learned a lot from him that I can move forward in my career and take with me. “But yeah, I was little bit surprised when it happened, but once I heard that hey, you were traded to the Brewers, I was like ‘Great, that’s where I wanted to be.'” Milwaukee is happy to have Renfroe, too. The reigning NL Central champions are counting on the 30-year-old Mississippi native to help replace the production that departed when Avisaíl García left for the Marlins and Eduardo Escobar went to the Mets in free agency. Renfroe, who broke into the majors with San Diego in 2016, hit .259 with 31 homers and a career-high 96 RBIs in his lone season with Boston, helping the Red Sox get to the AL Championship Series. He also had a career-high 16 outfield assists, tied for the major league lead. Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said Renfroe has fit right in, and he marveled at the slugger's power. “He could win a home run derby. I mean, it's easy for him to do it," “He doesn't have to put a lot of effort into it and it can go a long way” External link

Craig Counsell said : ”reflect the reduced risk of infection and transmission for fully vaccinated individuals". Charlie Riedel/AP The Milwaukee Brewers have joined the list of Major League Baseball teams to have at least 85% of players, coaches and Tier 1 employees vaccinated. MLB announced before the season it would relax pandemic-related protocols for teams that reached that 85% threshold for vaccination. Manager Craig Counsell and pitcher Brandon Woodruff talked during the Brewers’ pregame Zoom sessions with reporters about how their protocols had been relaxed. One of the major changes for teams that reach the 85% vaccination mark is they are no longer required to wear masks in the dugout. “There are some smaller things, but that’s the big one for us that comes with the 85%,” “I think it’s a nice little perk now that we get to enjoy and feel a little bit more normal in the dugout” External link

Craig Counsell said ( about Craig Counsell ) : "I like it because it shortens games,” Counsell said. “It also saves players’ jobs and needless roster maneuvering, often times with players who perform well in the game, which I think is really unfair. We were at four hours going into the 10th inning (on Opening Day). That was enough. That’s as simply as I can state it”. Counsell has been consistent in his support of not just that rule change but most of the tweaks Major League Baseball has put in place over the past year. Some have come as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic while others are attempts to speed up or add action to games. Whatever the reasons, Counsell believes it's important not only for MLB to try different things but also for fans to give those things a chance. “I think we’re getting there, getting our head around that it’s OK for us to change some rules," "The game will still go on and we can improve it, actually. The game’s not going to fall apart by making some changes to it. I think our nature in this game is we’re so cautious with this stuff.
