Melvin shoots down Brenly rumor

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin just told a Milwaukee radio audience that the rumor he was close to hiring Bob Brenly as manager was inaccurate. 
“Unless somebody else has been doing the hiring process, that’s not true,” Melvin said. 
Melvin said he had yet to conduct any interviews, and had not even set the criteria he’s looking for in his next manager.
Melvin made his comments on 540-AM, Milwaukee’s ESPN Radio affiliate. A rival station, 1250-AM WSSP, reported Wednesday morning that Cubs broadcaster and former World Series-winning manager of the D-backs Brenly was “close to agreeing” to be the next manager of the Brewers. 
Citing unnamed sources, WSSP morning anchor Doug Russell made the report via Twitter. Brenly told Russell he had, “nothing to say right now.” 
The Brewers announced Monday they would decline manager Ken Macha’s contract option for 2011, ending Macha’s tenure after two seasons. Brenly was one of three finalists for the Brewers job two years ago, along with Macha and Willie Randolph, before Macha got the job. 
Brenly managed the D-backs from 2001-04, going 303-262 in the regular season and winning the ’01 World Series over the Yankees in a seven-game thriller. He was dismissed midway through the ’04 season with Arizona off to a 27-50 start.

Hey there!
I am wondering if Joe Torre’s name has ever been mentioned?
I have to believe that I am not the only one who thinks that would be a great fit – bringing him back to Wisconsin where his Major League career started!!!
