EDIT:
Assistant hitting coach Jason Lane was told he would be considered as a replacement for Coles but is free to pursue other opportunities.

The Brewers also announced that head athletic trainer Dan Wright will not return to the club.

The rest of the coaching staff – bench coach Pat Murphy, pitching coach Derek Johnson, third base coach Ed Sedar and first base coach Carlos Subero – were invited back for the 2019 season, as was the remainder of the medical staff.


Didn't see that coming. Considering the Brewers were relatively healthy this year, the news on Dan Wright is particularly surprising.

Ed Sedar still has a job, so we have that going for us.

I’m guessing one of the injuries (or multiple) was handled in a way the Brewers weren’t particularly happy about.

Lee Tunnell is also interesting. Was he just a holdover still on contract and now they can find someone they want?

What did Lee Tunnell not answer the phone fast enough? I wonder what the actual reasoning was considering the bullpen was the strength of the team. I understand DJ has a lot to do with it, along with having talented pitches, but seems a little harsh.

Jimmy Nelson was the first person who came to mind. Otherwise the team was relatively healthy this year.

the Nelson injury wasn't the trainer's fault. It's a very hard injury to come back from. rotator cuff and labrum injuries have ended many careers. Pedro and Ramon Martinez, Alex Fernandez, Teddy Higuera, and many others weren't the same after them.

Where did anyone say it was his fault?

Surprising given relative level of health this season...must be something we don’t know.

Tunnell’s big claim to fame was fixing Axford. Maybe he’s just been around too long. He was also known more for being a roving instructor so maybe that’s a better fit for him. Would guess he just didn’t see eye to eye with DJ.

Something in the rehab could have been his fault, we don’t know.

I'm guessing it may have something to do with Suter coming back and pitching with the forearm strain, then immediately being diagnosed with a torn UCL. Maybe Wright told the team he was good to go?

Cant speak to the Brewers specifically but wondering if he failed to report Suter’s forearm to the doctors?

That might be the case... that and Nelson.

Ultimately the coaches probably don't have a lot to do with individual success and failure, but with the offense, I think a new voice certainly can't hurt.

Harsh... blowin the band up after an overachieving season. Replacements better not bust up the chemistry on the team.

Tunnell's big claim to fame (imo) was being lauded as an exceptional pitching coach when he was the roving pitching instructor for the minors. He also 'fixed Axford', but the reason he was known on BF was his overall work (& pre-dating the Axford' 'fix').

I'm completely shocked that he's been let go. Makes me wonder if it was due to him asking for more money and/or a larger title/role, because it's hard to identify a performance-based reason for him being let go.

the offense was fine for the most part until the dodgers series, it though sounds like it wasn’t the brewers choice to replace coles. The tunnel thing is odd as the pen was the strength of the team all season. I will reserve judgement until I see the replacements.
