Doug Melvin will stay on as GM in Milwaukee but will have a new manager in 2011, along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

Ken Macha is out as the Brewers' manager, as his club option will not be picked up for 2011. However, general manager Doug Melvin will return next season, though the franchise has been trending downward since making its first post-season appearance in 26 years in 2008.

Kevin Towers looks to build the Diamondbacks into a contender, along with other news and notes from around the majors.

When Kevin Towers looked at the Diamondbacks he didn't see a franchise that has already clinched a second straight last-place finish in the National League West. Nor did he see a franchise that won the division with a young nucleus three seasons ago and seemed ready to dominate the division only for everything to start going wrong.

The Pirates are encouraged by the performance of four youngsters in their lineup, along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

The Pirates are approaching the end of another dismal season. They are assured of finishing below .500 for an 18th consecutive year, extending their North American major professional sports record. They find themselves 33 games off the pace of the first-place Reds in the National League Central.

The Mets inject some youth into their sputtering lineup, along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

You've got to hand it to Jerry Manuel. The Mets manager works in the biggest media center in the world, runs a club in which a controversy seems to erupt every third day or so, and is constantly the subject of speculation that his job is in jeopardy. Yet the man is somehow able to keep the faith.

On the Beat: Padres are Riding The Wave

John Perrotto

San Diego has used season-long momentum to lead the NL West along with other notes from around the major leagues.

Bud Black is a very astute baseball man. He was a deep thinker as a major-league pitcher then made his mark following his playing career working in the Indians' front office and as the Angels' pitching coach before being hired as the Padres' manager prior to the 2007 season.

Charlie Manuel is keeping faith despite the Phillies' numerous injuries, along with notes from around the major leagues.

Charlie Manuel has been called many different things during his time as the Phillies' manager. The always-tough Philadelphia fans, jumping on his easy-going manner and heavy Virginia drawl, derisively called him "Jolly Charlie" and "Good-Time Charlie" until he won them over with a World Series championship in 2008. The Phillies players good-naturedly call their likeable skipper "Big Chuck."

Prospectus Hit and Run: Meet the Mets

8

Jay Jaffe

Why opt for drama when dramatic fixes might produce a right-now contender?

After losing a taut pitcher's duel to the Yankees on Friday night, the Mets salvaged some dignity by taking two out of three to claim the upper hand in the CitiField segment of this season's Subway Series. The wins push them a step or two beyond last week's multiple crises, buying embattled manager Jerry Manuel a bit more time to turn his ballclub around, though he's hardly out of the woods. With the ravenous New York media momentarily quieted, it's a fine time to inventory what's gone right and wrong for the club thus far, and what solutions are available.

A look at the contract status of each of the 30 major-league skippers.

If you’re in the market for a question you might use to win your next bar bet, you probably couldn’t go wrong with this one: Who preceded Mike Scioscia as manager of the Angels? If your answer was "Terry Collins," you’re close. But wrong.

On the Beat: Weekend Roundup

John Perrotto

Metropolitan inaction, Mariner busy-ness, plus news and rumors from around the game.

Millions of us face the same dilemma this week. Christmas is five days away, and we can't figure out what present to buy for the person who has everything. The Mets, on the other hand, are in the opposite situation. They are the team that seemingly needs everything following a season in which they collapsed under the weight of key injuries and had a 70-92 record, good for fourth place in the National League East. About the only thing good that can be said of the 2009 Mets is they didn't blow a big late-season lead to the Phillies the way that they had in the previous two seasons.

On the Beat: World Series Weekend Update

John Perrotto

Breaking down Game Three, the use of instant replay, and rumors and rumblings from around the major leagues.

It was only a year ago that Cole Hamels was the breakout player of the postseason. Yet it seems so much longer. The Phillies left-hander tried once again to find the magic of 2008 on Saturday night as he took the mound in Game Three of the World Series. For three innings, the 25-year-old looked like the carefree kid who stymied the Brewers, Dodgers, and Rays last year as he played a major role in delivering the Phillies' second World Series title in the franchise's 125-year history.

World Series Prospectus: Yankees versus Phillies Preview

25

Jay Jaffe

Will the Phillies establish a mini-dynasty, or will the Yankees add to their crowded trophy case with another title?

A year ago, the Phillies broke a 28-year-old title drought by winning the World Series, defeating the upstart Rays in five games. After winning 93 games in the regular season and tidily dispatching both the Rockies and the Dodgers in the first two rounds, they're back to defend their crown with a cast that's largely the same, save for summer acquisition Cliff Lee. They're the first NL team to repeat as pennant winners since the 1995-1996 Braves, and if they win the World Series, they'll be they first senior circuit club to do so since the 1975-1976 Reds.
