The JSOnline's Brewers season grades are always a lot of fun. In 2008 Gabe Kapler received a better grade than anyone on the offense. In 2007 JJ Hardy, Joe Dillon and Ryan Braun were deemed equal. The thought that goes into these rankings clearly takes at least 5-10 minutes. I have a few sources on the inside of the JSHQ and they were able to give me a few of the grades ahead of their publishing along with some preliminary notes. Not sure if it will be EXACTLY like this on Sunday (or whenever these come out), but I can guarantee it will make the same amount of sense. Hope you enjoy.
Jason Kendall: B- That one time he hit a homerun. Guys loved throwing at him. Also, hit a homerun that other time.
Prince Fielder: C+ If he doesn't tie for RBI lead he is sure B-.Would be higher if team was better. It's his fault for record.
Felipe Lopez: A+++++ If I was GM I'd pay him a million trillion dollars!
JJ Hardy: INCOMPLETE Team is stupid for sending him down.
Alcides Escobar: C+Dazzling defense, but the bat isn't there. Seems like one of the best
Craig Counsell: B- One of the best seasons of his career.
Casey McGehee: C True Rookie of the Year candidate filled the hole at third base adequately.
Rickie Weeks: F- Got hurt. LOPEZZZZZZ!!!!!
Corey Hart: B- Changed his at-bat music later in the season and I really enjoyed it.
Mike Cameron: D He may have been one of the Brewers' best hitters, but he struck out a lot.
Ryan Braun: C- Wasn't as good as I thought he'd be. Would be higher if team did better, it's his fault.
Frank Catalanotto: A One of the lone bright spots.
Jody Gerut: F+
Yovani Gallardo: C- Not enough like CC.
Trevor Hoffman: A+ Best. Free. Agent. Signing. Ever.
Braden Looper: C- Sure, it was the worst season of his career and he led the league in homeruns and earned runs allowed. He had 14 wins! 14!
Jeff Suppan: D+ If he would have pitched better Brewers would have won the World Series.
Manny Parra: Somewhere between B and F.
Dave Bush: D- Bring back Doug Davis.
Mark DiFelice: B Can't imagine where the Brewers would have finished without his 3.66 ERA.
Mitch Stetter: C- His 3.60 ERA was a pleasant surprise.
Claudio Vargas: D- 1.78 ERA with Brewers. Am I supposed to be impressed?
Mike Burns: C Did a good job with what he was asked to do.
Seth McClung: B- "We need to give a good grade to Seth because he's my friend on twitter. -Tom"
Todd Coffey: C+Pitched a lot of games.
The rest: F
