The Milwaukee Brewers may not have the long time success of other teams in baseball, but they can still boast an excellent all time 25 man roster.
It did not take long for the Milwaukee Brewers to become the vagabonds of baseball. They began as the Seattle Pilots as an expansion team in 1969, only to move to Milwaukee the following year. They are the only team to play in four different divisions, and changed leagues in 1998, going from the American League to the National League.
Despite all of those changes, and the numerous divisions they have been a part of, success has eluded the Brewers. They have made the postseason only four times in their history, making their only World Series appearance in 1982. In fact, 1981 and 1982 were the only times that the Brewers made the postseason in consecutive years.
With that run of futility, one would imagine that the Brewers would not have had much in the way of talent over the history of their franchise. However, that is not the case. The Brewers have had a number of excellent players, with five former Brewers enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Two, Robin Yount and Paul Molitor, are even in Cooperstown wearing a Brewers hat.
So, what would an all time Milwaukee Brewers 25 man roster look like? Let us answer that question by taking a trip through time and looking over the history of the Brewers, starting at catcher.
