Stat Of The Night: Is Ryan Braun The Best Postseason Brewer?

Following tonight's loss the Brewers are 3-5 in playoff games during Ryan Braun's career. It's hard to blame him for the team's results, though, as he's gone 12-for-31 and posted a .387/.406/.625 line. He hit a single and drew a walk tonight to earn game MVP status with a +.132 WPA.

Braun doesn't have the signature, series clinching moment yet, but career WPA numbers make a strong case for him as the best postseason position player in franchise history:

Player Games WPA
Ryan Braun 8 +.397
Cecil Cooper 17 +.374
Paul Molitor 17 +.196
Robin Yount 17 +.184
Charlie Moore 16 +.144

Meanwhile, Randy Wolf is also in rare company: His -.479 WPA performance tonight replaced Mike Caldwell's disaster start in Game 1 of the 1982 ALCS as the worst ever by a Brewer. Shaun Marcum's performance Tuesday night is now the sixth worst.

Hopefully, these last two nights are games we'll eventually talk about as bumps in the road en route to something greater.
