Is Now the Time To Extend Lucroy?

March 26th, 2012 was a banner day for Milwaukee Brewers’ team president and general manager Doug Melvin. On that day he outdid even his own handiwork of four years earlier when he signed Jonathan Lucroy to one of the more remarkably team-friendly deals in recent… [More]
