The All-Brewers Team: Positional Players

5 of 7

3rd Base -Paul Molitor (1978-1992)

Paul Molitor.  End of discussion.  The guy had 2,200 hits in a Brewers uniform, not to mention that his career playoffs on base percentage is .435!!!  No one else should be at the hot corner for the Brewers, other than  #4.

I couldn’t say it any better than Lou has. But it won’t stop me from trying. Paul Molitor was an incredible player, to say the very least. He was as versatile on defense as he was punishing on offense. In his 15 seasons with the club he played 2nd base, 3rd base, shortstop, left, center and right field. He also batted at the DH spot. If you loaned him a suit, I’m sure he could have done the team’s taxes too. He was a career .302 batter with the Brewers, and his postseason batting average is .368. When Toronto won the series, he hit .500 in 6 games. That doesn’t pertain much to our argument here, but it’s pretty awesome. He did hit .355 in the ’82 Series as well. The man’s in Cooperstown as a Brewer, so there’s no argument he deserves to be on the list. It’s just a wonder that Milwaukee couldn’t have more success with him and Robin on the roster.
