3. Rollie Fingers

Years as a Brewer: 1981-1982, 1984-1985

259 IP, 3.05 FIP, 1.08 WHIP

Rollie Fingers elevated the Milwaukee Brewers to a whole new level. The beloved Brewer was acquired in a big-time trade with the Cardinals that saw the Brewers acquire Fingers, Ted Simmons, and Pete Vuckovich.

Fingers had the best year of his career in 1981 when he took home the Cy Young and AL MVP Award.

He helped lead the Brewers to the AL Pennant in 1982. His 1982 season saw him earn an All-Star appearance and finish 16th in MVP voting while pitching to a 2.54 FIP and 1.04 WHIP.

If Fingers was healthy for the World Series, there is a good chance that the Brewers win it all.

Fingers fell off in 1985, but in three short years, he became a Brewers legend.
