Craig Counsell Back with Milwaukee Brewers for One More Year

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IJanuary 23, 2009

Minus the signing of Trevor Hoffman, it's been a pretty predictable offseason for the Milwaukee Brewers. On Friday, the Crew made another move that surprised no one but definitely did please the community of Whitefish Bay. That move would be the re-signing of utility infielder Craig Counsell to a one-year deal with $1 million.

Counsell will again provide the stability to the infield that he provided last year, as well as his veteran presence. It's a good low-risk signing, and nobody can really be upset about this move.

So, besides the new contracts for Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks, are the Brewers done with their offseason signings? Bernie's Crew notes Milwaukee is showing interest in Kris Benson, and could also be interested in Mark Mulder for their rotation. But for all intents and purposes, it looks like the Brewers are done.

But why they still haven't yet signed Brian Shouse baffles my mind.
