During a Q & A portion at the Brewers on Deck at Midwest Express Center, Melvin fielded questions about free agent pitcher Ben Sheets.
“It doesn’t appear that it’s going to happen,” Melvin said, noting that Sheets recently meet with the Texas Rangers.
Sound's like the bridge is all but burned back to Milwaukee.
A young fan also asked Melvin if the Brewers had any interest in free agent outfielder Manny Ramirez. Melvin responded:
Melvin said there wasn’t a place for Ramirez on the team and Milwaukee already had a left fielder.
“Who would you rather have Manny Ramirez or Ryan Braun?”
The young fan chose Braun.
