D10: Ten Brewers I would most like to drink with

drunkdudeLists are for lazy people. Since I am lazy, do top ten lists all the time and only occasionally write about the Brewers I thought I would create a new tag for the site called "Drunk 10". Come on, it's fun. Today we cover the Brewers we'd most like to share a drink with judged on talent, general coolness, drinking ability and likelihood to buy drinks. Apologies in advance to Ryan Braun, I still love you.

10. Rickie Weeks

I am probably biased here, but I have heard from people who have seen him out around Milwaukee that he is a really cool guy. Between growing up and Daytona Beach and all the time he spent on the DL you have to think he has beaten up a pretty good drinking resume.

9. Paul Molitor

Really should be higher based on the sheer amount of talent and things to talk about him with, but this quote from his Wikipedia: "He stopped using drugs in 1981, and has since visited schools to lecture about the dangers of drug use" drops him down. Still, even if the Ignitor sipped on a virgin pina colada while you got hammered it would still be awesome. It's Paul Molitor!

8. Jeff Suppan

Before you attack me, hear me out here. Let's say you can convince the devout Catholic Jeff Suppan to drink with you. He probably doesn't drink that much and after a few rounds of shots he'll be near black out/ready to pass out. Can you get a large amount of embarrassing photos of him? I say yes.. Will he fall asleep and leave you able to draw penises on his face? God, I hope so. This is definitely worth something and with his contract you probably won't even have to spend that much!

7. Dave Nilsson

Have you ever seen a Foster's commercial? Exactly. Plus, the accent virtually guarantees you will get laid that night.

6. Harvey Kuenn

Nobody chews that much tobacco in the dugout and doesn't know how to drink. The potential for comedy of drinking with a guy that has a prosthetic leg is off the charts.

5. Richie Sexson

Good Brewer? Check. Lots of money? Check. DUI arrest? Check. Richie Sexson has all the makings of a good drinking partner (except for that whole freakishly tall thing.)

4. Robin Yount

Of course. The greatest Brewer of all time should probably place higher here. He's funny, lived in Wisconsin from age 18 to 37 so you know he can drink and again, is the greatest Brewer of all time. So why isn't he higher? Robinade, that's why. I don't need him telling every bartender we encounter about how he should carry Robinade because it's great with vodka and he has some free samples out in the car he can get for him. Let it alone Robin, not everyone cares about Midwest children.

3. Prince Fielder

Prince is my favorite type of person to drink with, the "I don't get out much because I am married with children so I am going to make this night worth it". (By the way, I completely fabricated the whole Prince's wife doesn't let him do anything thing and have now convinced myself that it is completely genuine.) Beyond that I think he's one of the best Brewers in history and seems like a really nice guy. Plus, if someone tries to mess with me I know I can count on him to Manny Parra someone for me. Good times.

2. Mike Cameron

What? Is this your first time reading the site or something?

I'll make this brief. Mike Cameron is a great baseball player, but beyond that he is one of the best clubhouse guys in the league and he is one of the most popular players in the league. Countless players call him their best friend in baseball and you really see the guy without a smile on his face. There is no way in hell that Mike Cameron isn't one of the funnest guys to hang out with in the history of the Brewers or Major League Baseball. It's impossible.

1. Gorman Thomas

No, really, who else?

Vince Morales is the guy who runs this site. He likes the Milwaukee Brewers, pro wrestling and beer. If he offended you he is very, very sorry.

    Wheres John Jaha? Molitor would of been awesome to hang out with in 1980. Cleaning up on Geoff Jenkins scraps wouldnt be bad either.

  4. Very NICE!!!

    It’s only a list of ten, but here’s a couple more:

    Matt Stairs & Corey Koskie – HELLO, They’re Canadian!

    Cecil Cooper – You know that surly look he has? That would come in real handy when a bartender says, “last call.”

    Dave Parker – Ummmmmm, he’s The Cobra.

    Freeway – What? He’s not actually a Brewer?

    I once beat Jimmy Gantner at bar dice in New Berlin. He was a pretty cool guy.

    I had the chance to meet Paul Molitor and have a beer with him after he retired. He was just a really nice guy. I bet he would be a lot more fun if you added in some blow, though…

    My father once drank with Gorman Thomas and Jimmy Gantner.

    Speaking of which: How does Gumby not make the list? He grew up in a small Wisconsin town where bars practically outnumber people.

    But, why would you want to sleep with Dave Nilsson?

  9. Citizens Bank Park Drunk on said:

    OK, he is not a Brewers player but an exception should have been made. Who would not want to have a drink/get drunk with Uecker?

    I’ve seen Bill Hall and Ryan Braun at the bars on north ave. Billy Hall could drink me under the table.

    I have to agree with Citizens Bank. Uecker is the one I would love to get hammered with.

    too scared to drink with pete vuck?

    I’ll go with CBPD too. You might not get laid, but will laugh your ass off drinking with Uecker.

    Oh yeah, another glaring omission – Ed Sedar.

    My brother went up to Gorman in a restuarant in Tempe
    AZ when Gorman was with the Mariners. My brother asks for an autograph and Gorman says “sorry kid, I don’t sign when I’m drinking.” Great guy.
