Brewers owner backs GM's decision to fire Roenicke

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -

Brewers owner Mark Attanasio said on Tuesday that he supported general manager Doug Melvin's decision to fire manager Ron Roenicke.

Roenicke was fired Sunday with Milwaukee off to a 7-18 start. He was replaced Monday by former Brewers player Craig Counsell, who had been a special assistant to Melvin in the front office since January 2012.

"I'm not sure it's ever the right time," said Attanasio, who spoke to reporters during Tuesday night's game at Miller Park against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
