Tonight’s interview is with Dick Groch, who works in the Milwaukee Brewers’ front office in scouting and player personnel as a special assistant to GM Doug Melvin. Groch has been with the Brewers since ’02 and used to work for the Yankees, where he was responsible for signing Derek Jeter. Groch discusses a few of the positives for the Brewers this year, such as ’12 Sounds like Mike Fiers, Jim Henderson and Martin Maldonado. He also discusses what the Brewers got from the Angels in the Zack Greinke trade (INF Jean Segura and RHPs Johnny Hellweg and Ariel Pena), how many opinions were sought in the Brewers in the organization before the deal, and, as a scout, where he thinks more about the players he did sign or the ones he didn’t (see Votto, Joey).
