Brewers Owner Mark Attanasio Talks Payroll, New Miller Park Elements For '13 Season
Published April 2, 2013
FOLLOW THE SIGNS: In Wisconsin, Scott Venci noted it “remains to be seen if the Brewers’ signing of Lohse was a wise move, especially since the team had to surrender its first-round pick -- the 17th overall -- in order to get him.” But acquiring Lohse was “another sign that Attanasio wants to have a consistently competitive team, and he’s willing to commit some serious money to help make it happen.” The team won a “franchise-record 96 games in 2011 and have drawn more than 3 million fans in three of the past five seasons after never drawing that many in any of the first 39 years of the franchise.” The Brewers have $73.8M "committed for next season,” but President of Baseball Operations & GM Doug Melvin “sounds like his team will be able to add payroll if it is able to make a playoff push both this season and in the future” (Appleton POST-CRESCENT, 3/31).
