The Milwaukee Brewers were officially born in 1970 upon moving to the Cream City from Seattle. While their history doesn't matchup with many of the oldest clubs -- in terms of wins, players or records -- the Brewers have had a number of phenomenal talents who posted terrific seasons.

Though much of the success came in the distant past, there are actually five current members of the Brewers who own a franchise-best season in their back pockets.

Aramis Ramirez is the only Brewers' third baseman to have a season with a .900 OPS. That came in 2012 when he hit 50 doubles and 27 home runs. Tommy Harper fell just short, posting an .899 OPS in the Crew's first season.

The current Milwaukee backstop is the only catcher in club history with 15 or more home runs to go with at least a .790 OPS. Lucroy hit 18 dingers en route to a .795 OPS in 2013. Ted Simmons was the only other catcher on pace, falling short on home runs while producing a .799 OPS and driving in 108 runs.

Yovani Gallardo is the only pitcher in Brewers' history to strike out 200 batters and hold opponents to .225 batting average or lower in the same season. Yo accomplished the feat in 2009 with 204 punch outs, while batters hit just .219 against him.

In team history, Milwaukee's 2011 NL MVP is the only player to record 100 runs, 100 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in the same season. Ryan Braun has actually done it on three separate occasions, accomplishing the feat in 2009, 2011 and 2012. He also led the league in hits in 2009 with 203 that year.

In 2013, Carlos Gomez became the only player in franchise history to record at least 20 home runs, 20 doubles and 40 stolen bases in a single season (24-27-40), which he executed in 2013. Paul Molitor had enough steals and doubles in three separate years, but was short on the long ball, hitting 19, 16 and 15, respectively, in those seasons.
