Brewers extend Melvin

This weekend, the Milwaukee Brewers extended Doug Melvin's contract through 2009. This is a great move for the franchise. Melvin has made some good moves since he's been in Milwaukee, and he deserves the opportunity to be with the franchise to see if the players he has acquired get this team to the playoffs. With a limited budget, he was able to put together a winning team full of young talent that has the potential to develop into a playoff contender. With this extension, he'll be able to continue building this team and then sign the free agents necessary to establish depth to round out the core of this team. The nucleus is there and began to show good things in the second half of the season. If he can get better depth on the bench and add an arm in the rotation, this team will improve on its 2005 season. Lets just pray that he doesn't get "comfortable;" he maintain his drive to make this team a contender.
