ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - While Dale Sveum is the first name one might have considered as a possible replacement for first-base coach Luis Alicea, a major league source indicated he might be staying in Milwaukee in a different capacity. Sveum was let go as the interim manager of the Brewers last week.

Sveum, the former Red Sox third-base coach and a good friend of manager Terry Francona, drew some fans' ire during his tenure in Boston with a few runners getting thrown out at the plate.

NESN's Ken Macha would also be another candidate, but he's now emerged as a frontrunner for managing jobs in both Milwaukee and Seattle. Macha formerly managed the Oakland A's.
