(Grady, just about ready to take Pedro out…any minute now)
Little, who averaged 94 regular-season wins (188-136) during his two years as Boston manager, has spent the past two seasons working for the Chicago Cubs as a roving catcher instructor and a special assistant to general manager Jim Hendry. The Brewers, who finished 81-81 to end their 12-year string of losing seasons, dismissed bench coach Rich Dauer and third base coach Rich Donnelly after the final game.
Manager Ned Yost told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Little is “somebody I’ve had contact with.”
Little and Yost are close friends. They managed together in the Atlanta Braves minor league system and were roommates during spring training.
