“Hey fellas, let me teach you how to bunt.” Those were, I’m sure, Ron Roenicke’s very first words to his players during spring training. And boy, did they learn how to bunt!
Roenicke’s time with the Milwaukee Brewers has been lopsided. He led the team to a NLCS appearance during his first year with the team but his glory quickly vanished as the Crew only managed 83 wins in 2012 before throwing in the towel from basically day one this year.
The question must be asked. Should Ron Roenicke be relieved of his duties? If it were up to me, he’d be gone in a heartbeat. I believe it’s time for new leadership in the clubhouse. But what do you think?
