Brewers | Macha to return in 2010, has 2011 option added to contract

Updating previous reports, Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin announced that manager Ken Macha would be returning in 2010 for the second year of his two-year contract, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In addition, Melvin decided to add an option to Macha's contract for the 2011 season. "He didn't ask for (the option)," said Melvin. "He said, 'It doesn't matter to me. I don't do this job for security. I do it to win ball games.' The option tells him I do support him in his role as manager." Melvin also invited back bench coach Willie Randolph, hitting coach Dale Sveum, third base coach Brad Fischer and first base coach Ed Sedar.
