Even though we don’t have the Packers to watch any more this season, there’s been a lot to take in – and discuss – in recent days regarding sports in Wisconsin.

Veteran catcher, Jonathan Lucroy, made waves this week when he suggested that a trade could be the best thing for him and the Brewers. Some believe Lucroy is asking for a trade, while others felt the conceit could decrease his value as a player.

When baseball season opened, there were high hopes for the Milwaukee Brewers.  They’d had a rough end to their 2014 season, but the pundits thought they had the potential to bounce back.

But, as we know by now, that didn’t happen – it’s been a struggle all year for the Brew Crew, and that was reflected when the team sent a host of players elsewhere in the last few weeks.

After 16 years in the major leagues and retiring after the 2011 season, Craig Counsell is back in a Milwaukee Brewers uniform.  After the team’s worst start in club history, Counsell was hired in May to replace Ron Roenicke, who was fired 25 games into the 2015 season.

Counsell sees things beginning to turn around this season.  He cites the consistency of the bullpen as the greatest strength for the team at this point.  With weaknesses exposed in offense and starting pitching,  2015 looks to be a rebuilding year.

The Brewers have hired their former infielder Craig Counsell to succeed Ron Roenicke as manager. The team dismissed Roenicke on Sunday, following a dismal start to the season.

Counsell grew up in the Milwaukee area and played the last five seasons of his 16-year baseball career with the Brewers. He retired in 2011. Since then, the 44-year-old has worked in the club's front office.

Badger basketball fans have even more reason to celebrate. The University of Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky is the Associated Press' player of the year.

The 7-foot forward was a runaway favorite and is the first Wisconsin player to win the award.

The baseball team has dismissed a couple coaches, but will retain Manager Ron Roenicke and the rest of the staff for next season.

Fans crowd into Miller Park Monday for Opening Day and the return of Ryan Braun, suspended for half of last season for using banned substances.
