The Milwaukee Brewers became the latest team to dip into the Angels' deep reservoir of coaching talent when they offered their vacant managerial job to bench coach Ron Roenicke on Tuesday. Sources in Milwaukee and Los Angeles confirmed that Roenicke has accepted the job, although a formal announcement won't be made until a physical and the requisite paperwork, including background checks, are complete. That may not happen until Friday. The Brewers, the Angels and Roenicke all declined to comment publically.

The post-save somersaults that Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman performed after nailing down a 4-3 victory over Milwaukee on Tuesday night not only irritated the Brewers, it also irritated his manager, Dusty Baker. "It's been addressed already and it's over," Baker said on Wednesday. "It won't happen again -- ever. I know he's happy and things have been going poorly for him, but he's got to demonstrate in a different way. " Chapman has struggled in the last couple of weeks, giving up game-losing homers to Cleveland and Minnesota.

Ron Roenicke spent the past 11 seasons as a trusted advisor to Angels Manager Mike Scioscia . So he couldn't help but wonder how his boss would take it when Roenicke found himself sitting by the phone waiting for the Milwaukee Brewers to call and offer him their managerial job. When the first congratulatory call came, however, it wasn't from Milwaukee. It was from Scioscia. "I think Scioscia knew I had the job before I did," Roenicke said Saturday. It was, after all, a move both men had been expecting.

When talking about Tony Gwynn Jr. this week, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly had no idea how prophetic his words would later sound. "Tony's that backup guy," Mattingly said, "but he ends up playing a ton. " Gwynn could play a ton more, depending on the severity of the injury that forced center fielder Matt Kemp out of Wednesday's game in the second inning. Gwynn replaced Kemp, who was only a day removed from being activated from the 15-day disabled list. During the 15 days Kemp was sidelined because of a strained hamstring, Gwynn was forced into a prominent role.

Ron Roenicke often stands a foot or two behind the dugout steps during a game, the first-year manager of the Milwaukee Brewers staying out of the spotlight as he calls the shots. Roenicke keeps a similar modest profile when he ventures out in this city that's buzzing with pennant fever because the Roenicke-led Brewers are one of baseball's hottest teams. "Hey, congratulations," people who stop him say. Roenicke's polite reply: "We've got a long way to go. " It's an attitude he learned from his former boss, Angels Manager Mike Scioscia.

Donny Rowland was hired Monday as director of scouting and player personnel for the Angels as the club continued to rebuild its front office. A national scout with the New York Yankees for five years, Rowland, 36, replaces Bob Fontaine, who resigned this month after 13 years with the club and took a scouting position with the Chicago White Sox. The Angels are expected to hire Ron Roenicke, a former teammate of Manager Mike Scioscia, as third base coach.

San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum won the National League Cy Young Award on Thursday for the second straight year, emerging from one of the tightest votes in the history of the honor to become the first repeat winner since Randy Johnson . The wiry right-hander, nicknamed "the Freak" for his giant stride, needed only 15 victories to earn the award -- the fewest for a Cy Young starter over a non-shortened season. Lincecum led the NL with 261 strikeouts and tied for the league lead with four complete games and two shutouts.

The Angels' unsuccessful season is not expected to cost any of the coaches their jobs, but it could cost those coaches the chance to interview for managerial openings elsewhere. In the wake of the Angels' highly successful season last year, coaches Bud Black and Ron Roenicke received interviews, Black with the Cleveland Indians and Roenicke with the Seattle Mariners. "I don't think I interview last year unless we win," Roenicke said. Black, Roenicke and fellow coaches Alfredo Griffin, Mickey Hatcher and Joe Maddon all have managerial ambitions.

Ron Roenicke was like a high school student trying to cram for an exam during his lunch break. The bench coach had about half an hour Thursday evening to learn the signs he would need as acting manager before the Angels played the Seattle Mariners at Angel Stadium. Give Roenicke an "A."

SAN DIEGO -- Bud Black was a member of Mike Scioscia's original coaching staff with the Angels. Three of those coaches ascended to managerial jobs - Black with the San Diego Padres, Joe Maddon with the Tampa Bay Rays and Ron Roenicke with the Milwaukee Brewers. Never in Scioscia's 13 years had one of his coaches left involuntarily - until this week, that is. Hitting instructor Mickey Hatcher , another of Scioscia's original coaches, was fired by General Manager Jerry Dipoto . "Your initial reaction is surprise," Black said.

No one anticipated the Angels would coax the superstar first baseman away from the only team he had ever known, from the fans that had adored him. Yet the Angels swooped in, signed him to the richest contract in franchise history and set sail for October. Then the season started. Soon after, so did the defeats, the dissension, and the dismissals. Albert Pujols, meet Mo Vaughn. This could be 1999 all over again. By the time the debacle of Vaughn's debut season was over, the players had staged a mutiny and the ownership had cleaned house.

Bench coach Ron Roenicke , who works with the team's outfielders, was told by communications manager Eric Kay on Tuesday that a Japanese reporter wanted to speak to him about Hideki Matsui's first practice with the Angels. Moments later, Roenicke was swarmed by 30 to 40 reporters, photographers and camera operators, turning it into a media event. "E.K. said one guy wanted to talk to me, and all of a sudden there was a whole group there," Roenicke said. "I guess that's how it's going to be."

The Cleveland Indians have received permission from the Angels to speak to bench coach Ron Roenicke about their managerial job, which opened when the team fired Eric Wedge in the final week of the regular season. It was unclear Thursday when Roenicke, who has spent 10 seasons with the Angels under Manager Mike Scioscia , six as a third base coach and the last four as the bench coach, would interview for the position, or if he has already been interviewed. Angels General Manager Tony Reagins would neither confirm nor deny the Indians' interest.
