The Brewers drafted Crim in 1982 and he played his first five pro seasons with them, making 332 appearances (nearly all in relief) and posting a 3.47 ERA. He pitched over 100 innings in relief in three consecutive seasons (1987-89), and no Brewer has done it since. He led the AL in appearances in both 1988 and 1989 and pitched in 60+ games again in 1990 and '91. Maybe the workload had finally started to wear him down at this point: He posted a 4.97 ERA and pitched just three more seasons after leaving the Brewers.
Fetters, meanwhile, spent six seasons in Milwaukee and and made 289 appearances as a Brewer, racking up 79 saves. His best season in Milwaukee was his first one: He posted a 1.87 ERA in 50 games in 1992. The six seasons he spent with the Brewers were the longest stop on his journeyman major league career - after leaving Milwaukee he spent either one or two seasons each in Oakland, Anaheim, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Arizona and Minnesota before calling it a career.
