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.
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
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).
I’m pretty certain Rodriguez will allow a run at some point, but it hasn’t happened yet.
Lucroy hitting .313 edges out Scooter Gennett (hitting .321) for this week’s quietly doing his job guy.
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?
