Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present the first revision of our top 50 Milwaukee Brewers of all-time.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in their respective League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
This is the first time that we have revised this specific list, which was first put up in 2016, and there are many changes, though none that are changing the top five.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories, which has altered the rankings considerably.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
1. Robin Yount
2. Paul Molitor
3. Ryan Braun
4. Cecil Cooper
We had a debut of Christian Yelich, who despite only having completed two full seasons, won two Batting Titles, two OPS Titles and an MVP. No Brewer has ever had back-to-back years like Yelich, who arrives on this list at #11. Two-time All-Star, Corey Hart was overlooked in our original list. He now appears at #25. Current Milwaukee Centerfielder, Lorenzo Cain debuts at #37. Former 2000s infielder Bill Hall, who was previously overlooked, comes in at #49.
