As of Wednesday the Milwaukee Brewers completed a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals and clinched their first playoff berth since 2011 and their fifth overall in franchise history. But who were the best five players from the 2018 season?
Making the playoffs in baseball is very difficult to accomplish. It is a long grueling season with many ups and downs. It takes a complete team effort to get to October, and this Milwaukee Brewers team is no different.
When we look back on this season the Brewers has had everything from an Eric Thames walk off, to an Orlando Arcia bunt double, and even a drawn walk from relief pitcher Jordan Lyles in the 15th inning to extend the game. Just about every man on the roster has had a special moment this year that has helped propel the Brewers to a win and now to a spot in the post season.
While there have been many contributors to this 2018 playoff season, there are a handful of players that have been the life blood of this Brewers team. Without them and their efforts, we can confidently say that the Brewers wouldn’t be sitting where they are now.
There have been five key players for the Milwaukee Brewers in this 2018 season that have had huge impacts. Let’s take a look!
