Earlier this season, Craig Counsell passed manager Tom Trebelhorn for third most wins in Brewers franchise history as a manager, and is only 130 wins behind franchise leader Phil Garner.

Counsell has reached a level of success and acclaim not many expected from him when he was named interim manager in 2015 after the firing of Ron Roenicke, amassing a .515 win percentage (only six full time managers in franchise history have a win percentage above .500), combined with a reputation as a roster manipulator, getting every last ounce of talent out of his small market team.

Already the National League's longest tenured manager, should Craig Counsell be considered the manager of the future for the Crew?

 

Seth McClung, Counsell's former teammate with the Brewers, joined Bill on Thursday to talk Counsell, the Brewers, and more:

What would the atmosphere and mood in the locker room be after a game like last night?

How “illegal” is it to have substances on your fingers while pitching?

What did he see from the Brewers young pitching staff this season?

Why haven’t the Brewers been able to fill first base since Prince Fielder left?

Does he think Ryan Braun has another year or two left to play?
