Only One Player Still Unsigned In Brewers Camp

+

Carlos Villanueva and Mike Rivera signed one-year deals yesterday, leaving Yovani Gallardo as the only player on the 40-man roster without a deal in place for the 2009 season. If he and the Crew can't work things out by Monday, the team can renew his contract at whatever salary they deem fit. Teams generally don't like renewing contracts because it's potentially an issue in future negotiations. Players don't like renewals either because, among other things, one disappointed quote can make them sound like moneygrubbing, selfish guys.
