Ambushed

Gerrit Cole seemed to be trending back up in his last couple games, and the hope was that he could get the Pirates off to a good start to this key stretch on the road against the division….but uh, that didn’t happen. There were some bloopers and bleeders and some bad plays on defense, but Cole was largely  ineffective and hit hard early. Hard to say what the problem was other...

StaTuesday: Brewers' Nelson on the right side of history

Jimmy Nelson is quietly having a nice year in his first full season as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers' starting rotation. With a month to go in the regular season, Nelson has a 3.81 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 26 starts. That's a vast improvement from 2014 when in 14 games (12 starts) he had a 4.93 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. If you want to pinpoint one thing which has led to this turnaround...

Milwaukee Brewers: A wish list for September

Come September 1, the MLB rosters will expand from the usual 25 to 40 players, allowing everyone on a team’s 40-man roster to come play on the big league team. For the Brewers, that means some younger guys will get some big league action to give the coaching staff a sense of what they have to work with for the next season. I personally cannot wait for that day to come, so here’s...

Q&A with Jimmy Nelson, the Brewers emerging ace

Jimmy Nelson has emerged as Milwaukee’s best starter thanks to a pair of tweaks. The 26-year-old righty has unleashed a spike curveball and tightened up his delivery. The results are striking. Nelson leads Brewers hurlers in punch outs, wins, and innings, and his 3.61 ERA is as solid as his 6-foot-6, 245-pound frame. Nelson discussed his adjustments, as well as his repertoire...

Preview: Brewers at Nationals

The Washington Nationals' miserable road trip finally is over, although home hasn't exactly provided them with much relief, either. Gio Gonzalez certainly seems to prefer the mound at Nationals Park, and he'll look to bounce back from one of the worst starts of his career when he faces the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Washington (60-60) dropped four games behind the New York...

The Only Option Left Is To Grind Runs Home

In the top of the 2nd inning during Sunday’s game against the Brewers, Jason Heyward led off with a double against Jimmy Nelson. The Cardinals were gunning for a sweep and putting a run up early against a team that hadn’t scored all weekend to that point would have been big. Randal Grichuk comes up to bat next and strikes out. Brandon Moss follows with a strikeout. Stephen Piscotty...

Cubs 5, Brewers 2 (7/30/15)

OSS: Rizzo hit a home run into Lake Michigan, basically. Three up 1. Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson shut down the Cubs for the first seven innings on only two hits, but the Cubs jumped all over his relief, capped off by a Rizzo three-run blast off Will Smith. That has to have been one of the fastest line drive homers I’ve ever seen. I’m amazed we couldn’t see a bow shock form...
