Brewers' owner confident with Melvin; Burns returns to team
Brewers' owner Mark Attanasio has given a vote of confidence to general manager Doug Melvin, and says rumors of his possible firing are "ridiculous."
The owner also said he'll let Melvin decide the future of manager Ken Macha, whose team has 14 more losses than on this date a year ago.
Melvin has not publicly criticized Macha, who will have one year left on a two-year contract.
But the GM says he won't make any decisions about the manager until after the season.
