MILWAUKEE -- The rebuilding Milwaukee Brewers tried to make up for any deficits in talent by staying aggressive, especially on the base paths. .Its a tone that manager Craig Counsell wants to maintain as the roster reshaping continues, with more young players expected to arrive at Miller Park in 2017.The Brewers led the majors with 181 stolen bases, 42 more than second-place Cincinnati.

So were always going to push it and be on the edge of that. I think its important, I think its going to be part of who we are.Infielder Jonathan Villar led the majors with 62 stolen bases. But Villar at times took risks running the bases. Other Brewers did, too, to the teams detriment.According to Counsell, players need to learn lessons now to improve. Counsell and general manager David Stearns are also analyzing young players who might be part of the teams core in the future.We took a mentality this year of really pushing it, really being aggressive, and Im very glad we took that mentality, said Counsell, who held an end-of-season news conference with Stearns on Tuesday.We explored players limits, and we explored our limits on the bases, and it was necessary ... players have to learn from it, theres no question, Counsell said.The Brewers only figure to get younger, especially if they decide to deal outfielder Ryan Braun. Stearns would only say he would field calls that come in for any player.One player who appears likely to return is first baseman Chris Carter, whose 41 homers were tied with Colorados Nolan Arenado for most in the National League. Carter is eligible for arbitration this offseason.Chris certainly had a wonderful year this year and certainly at this stage we would anticipate him being our first baseman next year, Stearns said.Game notes Stearns announced that the teams entire coaching staff would return in 2017. ...

Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. LONDON -- The absence of many of the top men from the Olympic golf tournament in Rio de Janeiro will be taken into account in evaluating the sports future in the games, IOC President Thomas Bach said Wednesday.Golf is making its first appearance in the Olympics for the first time since 1904, but 20 men -- including the top four in the world rankings -- have pulled out, many citing concerns over the Zika virus.We have to respect the individual decisions, even if they are going contrary to the recommendations given by the World Health Organization, if Zika is given as a reason, Bach said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press and two other international news agencies.Bach added that very different reasons not related to Zika have also been cited in golf circles for skipping the Olympics.Were also following with interest the discussions in the golf community, how they themselves are considering these discussions and what judgment they are making, he said.Rory McIlroy, among those who have withdrawn from the games, said Monday that golf needs to get tougher in its drug-testing procedures if it wants to be seen as a mainstream sport. He also said he may not even bother to watch the Olympic golf tournament on TV, saying he would probably stick to track and field, swimming and diving -- the stuff that matters. Golf and rugby were approved by the IOC in 2013 for inclusion in the Rio Games and 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The spate of withdrawals from Rio has put golfs long-term Olympic future in question.The IOC will meet after the Rio Games to evaluate golf and all other sports and events on the program.One of the main categories of the evaluation is, of course, the question of participation of the best players, Bach said. Let us wait then for this evaluation. Then, of course, we will also speak with the International Golf Federation once this is available.By evaluating events within each sport, the IOC could look separately at the mens and womens tournaments. As it has been almost exclusively male players who have been withdrawing from Rio, the IOC could potentially consider whether to drop the mens event and keep the womens tournament for Tokyo.
