Henry Aaron, the obvious choice, was voted as the "Best Brave Ever."

Today, we look at the Seattle Pilots/Milwaukee Brewers.

I had to go with Yount, but you forgot


With chops like that, you gotta give the love!

Yount spent his entire 20-year career with the Brewers. That's pretty cool all by itself, and he was damn good as well. He's "Mr Brewer" and rightfully so.

Molitor a distant second.

Where's Jim Gantner? Billy Speiers? Dan Plesac? Pat Listach?

"Where's me?"

Uh, Jaime, please read the question. I said "Best Brewer Ever."

The odd thing is - except for Fingers - all the others had a hand at killing the White Sox at the first game I ever attended in person.

I picked Yount. He and Ripken defined the SS position for me when I was a kid. Plus, he won MVP awards at two different positions.

Robin Yount = the balls.

Robin Yount. From teen rookie to Hall of Fame with the Brew Crew and never wore another MLB uni.

Yount. Along with County Stadium, the cool unis and the food, helped the Brewers attain permanent residency in my MLB top five.

Paul Molitor. I always liked him because he was a jagoff. And I'm a jagoff. He's always been one of my favorite players.

Robin Yount I always thought he kind of looked like a douche bag.

Robin Yount. 3,000 Hits, 20 years as a Brewer, 1st ballot HOFer. MVP at two of the hardest postions in baseball. Also made a diving catch to preserve the Brewers only No hitter(the final out of the game). Outside of Jim Gantner(who is from the milwaukee area), i don't think there was a player who loves this city(milwaukee) as much as Robin does.

Paul Molitor was a great player. However, he is not accepted in Milwaukee like Robin is(mainly due to his coke habit, the problems with his ex-wife, who still lives in the area.) He said he would go into the Hall as a Brewer, and he did, but it wasn't the same.

Robin Yount certainly but Paul Molitor was a fantastic ballplayer; one of the if not the best pure right handed hitter I've ever seen.

Coolest Brewer: Ted Simmons
Sox Killer Brewers: Don Money, Ben Oglivie

Best Brewer announcer: Merle Harmon--who also was good in the early 70s on Big Ten Game of the Week hoops Sat. Afternoons on the old TVS sports syndicated network, usually picked up by either WGN or WMAQ TV a bit before college hoops really took off with Enberg and McGuire on NBC.

Yount hands down, with Molitor a close 2nd.

I'd love to be able to say Lezcano, but alas Sixto it's Yount.

I'd love to be able to say Lezcano, but alas Sixto it's Yount.

I've hated the name Sixto Lezcano ever since the game at County Stadium where there was some guy near the crowd mic who would yell, "Sixto LezCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO" and then start some stupid chant.
