One More Year of Counsell

Minus the signing of Trevor Hoffman, it's been a pretty predictable off-season for the Milwaukee Brewers. On Friday, the Crew made another move that surprised no one, but definitely did please the community of Whitefish Bay. That move would be the signing of utility infielder Craig Counsell to a 1-year deal with $1 million.

Counsell will again provide the stability to the infield that he provided last year, as well as his veteran presence. It's a good low-risk signing, and nobody can really be upset about this move.

So besides the new contracts for Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks, are the Brewers done with their off-season signings? Bernie's Crew notes Milwaukee is showing interest in Kris Benson, and could also be interested in Mark Mulder for their rotation. But for all intents and purposes (!), it looks like the Brewers are done.

But why they still haven't signed Brian Shouse yet still baffles my mind.
