All-Brewers Team: Utility Guys

7 of 11

1B – John Jaha

Most people probably remember John Jaha as…well…not many people probably remember John Jaha. The truth is, he was a great hitter, and one of the better defensive first basemen in the Majors – certainly the best in Brewers history. John consistently had a fielding percentage better than the league average in every year he played in the field. He also pulled plenty of DH duty for the Crew during his seven year tenure. He finished his career in Milwaukee with a .268 average and 105 dingers. He hit over .300 twice in Milwaukee (1995-1996) and registered 97 Runs Above Replacement in his career. And yes, he may or may not have been my favorite Brewers player when I was growing up. So what? No one said this was an impartial study.
