Encouraging word on Counsell

Barry Meister, the representative for free agent infielder Craig Counsell, said he had a positive meeting with Brewers brass today about Milwaukee’s initial contract proposal and expected to speak with GM Doug Melvin again before the end of the Winter Meetings, perhaps even another chat on Wednesday night. 

Meister said he preferred to keep negotiations private and wouldn’t specifically say whether he presented a counteroffer. But the fact that the sides will continue talking is a good sign that the Brewers could get Counsell back. He’s a Milwaukee-area resident who proved extremely valuable to the team in 2009, batting .285 with a .357 on-base percentage while appearing at three infield positions.
