Roenicke looking forward to All-Star Game
HOUSTON -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will be in Kansas City for the All-Star Game. He will be part of a staff chosen by former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa that also includes current New York Mets manager Terry Collins.

"It'll be good," Roenicke said. "The All-Star Game, it's always a good thing to go to."

But it'll be more of a fun trip than a working one.

"Sometimes, you meet some players that end up playing for you down the road. So that's good, plus there are a lot of players that I've [managed] that I enjoy seeing. So that will be nice," said Roenicke, who doesn't believe he'll have much of a role on the National League All-Star team.

"I have no idea," he said. "I don't think it will be very much. I think that it's always been a tradition where you invite a couple of managers there and they're just kind of there.

"Maybe during the game, you just kind of throw something at them and see what they think. But I don't think there's a big role. And that's fine with me."
