Brewers owner claims team ‘had an operating loss’ in 2019
PHOENIX — Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio claims his team “had an operating loss” in 2019 but that isn’t why the club’s projected payroll has dropped nearly $30 million.
Attanasio says the Brewers are down from last season’s franchise-record $130 million payroll because president of baseball operations David Stearns didn’t find any splashy free-agent fits, instead preferring to rely on depth, versatility and manager Craig Counsell’s knack for balancing options.
