The Brewer power ranking is a composite score that considers on the field as well as off the field activities.  Do we really need a Brewer player power ranking?  Of course we do.

1: Yovani Gallardo

Gallardo is still undefeated with an E.R.A. under 2.00, good enough to stay at the top of the rotation and top of the rankings.

2: Carlos Gomez

Two words: Throw Down

3: Mark Reynolds  

No he’s not the third best player, in fact his average is low (.214) and he is striking out as much as expected (read: a lot). BUT, he also has five home runs, has played solid defense and the first base debate (for some) has been suspended (temporarily).

4: Kyle Lohse, Matt Garza, Marco Estrada, Wily Peralta

The pitching has been just incredible. Also need to throw in Tyler Thornburg and Will Smith from the pen.

5: Francisco Rodriguez

I’m pretty certain Rodriguez will allow a run at some point, but it hasn’t happened yet.

6: Jonathan Lucroy

Lucroy hitting .313 edges out Scooter Gennett (hitting .321) for this week’s quietly doing his job guy.

7: Aramis Ramirez

Hitting .347 with 16 R.B.I.s puts him in the elite category and MVP candidate.

8: Ryan Braun

Continues to be clutch despite a mysterious thumb and constant boo birds.

9: Hank the Dog

Hank got a house! It’s the least the team could do consider the good karma Hank has brought. Does Ron Roenicke deliver a bone daily to Hank? He should.

10: Martin Maldonado

I mean, did you see that right hook?
