How badly will the Braun-Fielder chemistry be missed in Milwaukee?

With Prince Fielder's departure now official, the Brewers face the possibility of two of the game's best young hitters being erased from their previously potent lineup (at least for the 50 games Braun is very likely to be suspended for, though that is up in the air given this recent report from Dan Patrick).

Much has been written about the sheer production that came from Braun and Fielder combined in their respective Brewers careers together: 391 home runs, 1187 RBIs, an astounding 48.6 total Wins Above Replacement; but how do immeasurable intangibles play into this transition in a key moment for the Milwaukee Brewers franchise?

This opinion piece takes a stab at the factors behind the stat column, the men behind the stage, so-to-speak, that helped bring success back to Milwaukee Brewers baseball—and put 3 million fans through the turnstiles for multiple years in the MLB's smallest market.
