Ron Roenicke Media Session Transcript
Day Two of the Winter Meetings in chilly Lake Buena Vista, Fla. was a little quieter for the Milwaukee Brewers. After Monday’s trade to acquire RHP Shaun Marcum from Toronto, the Brewers team contingent continued to meet and discuss more options as pieces began to fall into place for 2011.
The MLB Public Relations Meetings also continued on Tuesday as a part of the MLB Winter Meetings. Along with Brewers Media Relations Director Mike Vassallo and Vice President-Communications Tyler Barnes, I sat through sessions focusing on Social Media and Official Scoring. The day was highlighted by a visit from Commissioner Selig. The session with the Commissioner was a definitely a treat, he answered questions from the group for 30 minutes and was very candid with his answers.
Roenicke meets with members of the writers during his media session Tuesday afternoon at the MLB Winter Meetings in Florida.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke met with reporters this afternoon for the manager media session. Please click the link at the bottom for a complete transcript of the session. Roenicke talked in detail about his thoughts on the Marcum trade, his efforts to build relationships with players on his new team and his plans for Spring Training 2011.
Roenicke also was interviewed on MLB.com’s “Hot Stove” show. You can catch the entire interview here.
Tomorrow, Roenicke will participate in his first ever “Manager’s Luncheon” as a MLB manager. The yearly event is a more informal meeting with the media and team managers.
I will have another update for you tomorrow from the MLB Winter Meetings in Florida before I return home to Milwaukee late tomorrow night.
