Brewers Talking Extension with Braun

Only because I haven't made this clear yet, but I love Mark Attanasio. Every time you see him, it's like he still can't believe he owns a Major League Baseball team. Doug Melvin has done a great job assembling this team, but it's a lot easier to do that when you have an owner that's willing to give you cash to make things happen.

During the winter months, we've heard a lot about the Brewers trying to lock up their young guys for the future. I know there are a lot of people who feel the Brewers have a 2-3 year window before all of the guys head over to New York or Boston. That's why I'm loving the aggressive approach Attanasio is taking in trying to sign the young kids now.

The latest conversations have been with our new left-fielder Ryan Braun. Braun could already be eligible for arbitration after the 2010 season. He would likely be offered a similar to deal to that of Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who received a 6 year deal for $31 million.
