Most Valuable Brewers 2011

Scraping The Barrel: The Last Lesser Brewers

2

I think we've officially ridden this series about as far as it can go. Today is the 29th installment of what opened as the MVBrewer series. Here are the others, if you missed them: #1: Ryan Braun#...

Lesser Brewers: Mat Gamel

14

Since he spent just 12 days in the majors this season, the biggest story about Mat Gamel in 2011 was the comments Sound manager Don Money made about him in September. Money came up to help coach...

Lesser Brewers: Casey McGehee

22

We could only put off talking about Casey McGehee for so long, I guess. In a season full of shining moments for the Brewers there was arguably no darker cloud than McGehee. A year removed from...

Lesser Brewers: Zach Braddock

31

Our look back at the 2011 Brewers continues with Zach Braddock

Lesser Brewers: Taylor Green

29

Taylor Green appeared in just 20 games this season, so the story on him is probably that it wasn't more. As Casey McGehee's struggles lasted later and later into the season, many readers were...

Lesser Brewers: Mark Kotsay

Our look back at the 2011 Brewers continues with Mark Kotsay

Lesser Brewers: Craig Counsell

Lesser Brewers: Tim Dillard

14

If you weren't watching closely, you might have forgotten that Tim Dillard spent most of the season as a part of this Brewer team. Dillard was called up for the first time on May 13 but, in what...

Other Valuable Brewers: Takashi Saito

4

Takashi Saito doesn't really come with a highlight reel, so his season recap isn't too exciting. Though he missed almost three months due to various injuries, when he was on the field for the B...

Other Valuable Brewers: Yuniesky Betancourt

Our look at the 2011 Brewers continues with Yuniesky Betancourt.

Other Valuable Brewers: George Kottaras

3

There are two things you'll remember about George Kottaras from 2011: that he was Randy Wolf's unofficial personal catcher and he hit for the cycle (Three, if you're one of our female readers and...

Other Valuable Brewers: Marco Estrada

2

Of all the things that went right for the Brewers in 2011, Marco Estrada might have been the most unlikely. The Brewers claimed Estrada off waivers before the 2010 season but he appeared in just...

Other Valuable Brewers: LaTroy Hawkins

1

Our most valuable Brewers of 2011 series continues with LaTroy Hawkins

Other Valuable Brewers: Jerry Hairston Jr.

+

The Brewers acquired Jerry Hairston, Jr on July 30 from the Nationals. They sent OF Erik Komatsu, their minor league player of the year in 2010, to the Nationals in exchange. At the time, Hairston...

Other Valuable Brewers: Kameron Loe

1

I hope Kameron Loe is getting a nice break this winter because, after a tumultuous 2011, he deserves it. With LaTroy Hawkins and Takashi Saito unavailable to start the season, Loe was thrust by...

An MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Francisco Rodriguez

1

Just in case the off-season pitching acquisitions left you wondering whether the Brewers were making a push for the post-season, Doug Melvin proved he was taking no chances when he acquired...

An MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Chris Narveson

2

On the surface, Chris Narveson's 2011 numbers were good but not incredibly impressive. He posted an ERA in the mid 4's (4.45), only pitched 161.2 innings and his walk and strikeout rates actually...

An MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Carlos Gomez

22

Carlos Gomez may be remembered this season for scoring the game-winning run in Game 5 of the NLDS, but its clear that his defense is what made him such an asset to the club. While we'll probably...

An MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Jonathan Lucroy

5

Our Most Valuable Brewers series wrapped up on Monday when we profiled Randy Wolf. We still have lots of Brewers left to profile, though, and Jonathan Lucroy leads off the next chapter. Consider...

MVBrewer #10: Randy Wolf

17

I think it's possible the 2011 Brewers were the perfect fit for Randy Wolf. Last year, the Brewers probably attached a little too much hope to their big free agent signing. Wolf was coming off a...

We're down to one spot remaining in the top ten. Here's where we stand at this point: 1. Ryan Braun2. Prince Fielder3. John Axford4. Yovani Gallardo5. Zack Greinke6. Shaun Marcum7. Nyjer Morgan8. R...

MVBrewer #9: Corey Hart

2

When you consider how Corey Hart's season started, the numbers he finished with are pretty impressive. An oblique injury forced Hart to open the season on the DL and prevented him from making his...

Here's where we stand so far: 1. Ryan Braun2. Prince Fielder3. John Axford4. Yovani Gallardo5. Zack Greinke6. Shaun Marcum7. Nyjer Morgan Who will be #8? That's up to you to decide.

MVBrewers #7: Nyjer Morgan

31

When Corey Hart got hurt in Spring Training and Doug Melvin went looking for outfield depth, no one could have imagined it would work out like this. In fact, the first comment of the Fan Shot...
