2008 The Brewers exercise Ned Yost's 2009 option, after the 53 year-old skipper led Milwaukee to its first winning season since 1992, finishing second in the NL Central with an 83-79 won-loss record. The skipper will never manage a game in his extended contracted year after he is dismissed with 12 games remaining this season, taking the blame for the under-achieving team's swoon in August and September.
2010 The Brewers announce the club plans to erect a seven-foot statue of former owner Bud Selig with its unveiling scheduled during a pregame ceremony at Miller Park in August. Selig, the current baseball commissioner, led a group of investors that bought the Seattle Pilots in 1970 and moved the bankrupt franchise to Milwaukee.
