Doug Melvin Throws a Transaction Tantrum

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Doug Melvin is unhappy with the Brewers' play, and he's had enough, DFA'ing Bill Hall, sending J.J. Hardy down to AAA, firing pitching coach Bill Castro, and bringing Alcides Escobar and former Ranger Jason Bourgeois up to the majors.

Hall is owed $8.5 million for 2010, which the Brewers are going to have to eat.  Yummy yummy.

If Esteban German hadn't gotten called up, he's someone the Rangers could have looked at (once he was released), as a 25th man who could play multiple positions and give them a righty bench bat.
