It's time to vote in the Sweet 16 of the Most Despised Milwaukee Brewers bracket. This is just one half of the remaining combatants as the other side will be posted soon. Check out the last slide to see how to vote.
This half contains the competitors from the Gagne and Yost Region with the eventual winners meeting in the Final Four!
A pair of disappointments who watched their waists balloon, their abilities decline and injuries take away potential. Neither had a great work ethic in Milwaukee, with Belliard continuing his career elsewhere and Quevedo disappearing.
Both guys seem like quality people, but the results on the field were often undesirable. Suppan didn't offer the Brewers much in the way of talent, especially for the money. Weeks displayed some skill with the stick, but his defense has been awful and he has rarely survived a season without an injury costing him time and ability.
An intriguing matchup with Turnbow's explosion onto the scene, which was followed by a total meltdown that led to the end of his career. His goofy look didn't help. Surhoff has the tag of a first-round draft pick who didn't figure it out in Milwaukee, on or off the field. That picture of him is a perfect illustration of his personality with everyone he encountered.
It's the player versus manager debate in who has the most impact, and who truly was more despised by the fans. If Macha summons Parra to pitch, then Parra gets knocked around for a bunch of runs, who is to blame? Personality-wise, it's a battle between monotone, slow, sleepy grandpa and the attitude-filled, nerve-grating, immature, wasted talent.
Voting for the Sweet 16 in this half of the bracket will continue until Thursday at 11pm (ET). You can vote in the comments section below, on Facebook (TimMumaRantSports), on Twitter @brewersblend or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
