JIMMY NELSON NEWS

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Jun 30

Yesterday’s Official Lineup stumbled as only one batter truly stood out (Mike Trout) and neither of my cheap, upside starters reached 20 points. Jimmy Nelson failed to reach 10 points against the Phillies as they dinked and dunked their way to four runs in the first two innings. In fact, these were their scoring plays: True, the Phillies made enough contact to put runners in a...

Hangover remedy: Milwaukee Brewers come back to defeat Philadelphia Phillies

Once again, the Milwaukee Brewers came out flat following a big victory. This time, they shook off the fog, composed themselves and found a way to win. After making veteran journeyman Sean O’Sullivan look like a competent pitcher for far too long on Monday night, the Brewers asserted themselves in the sixth inning and defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. The Brewers did jump...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jun 29

When last we spoke, I recommended Francisco Liriano at home against the Braves, plus some Tigers at home against Jose Quintana. Well, Liriano struggled with the Freddie Freeman-less Braves and my Tigers were only so-so. The results were disappointing — 88.45 points and a 28,550 finish out of 44,081. Friday’s Official Lineup (click to enlarge) Now, for the daily weather check...

Jimmy Nelson strikes back: Milwaukee Brewers defeat New York Mets

There haven’t been many absolutely dominant pitching performances for Milwaukee Brewers starting pitching this season. Wednesday night, Jimmy Nelson turned one in, almost singlehandedly defeating the visiting New York Mets 4-1 at Miller Park. The Brewers starting rotation, plagued by injuries and a general lack of effective stuff, needed both someone who could take the team deep...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Jun 25

Yesterday I featured a Rockies stack with Jordan Zimmermann and filled in my hidden slots with Jimmy Nelson, Buster Posey, and Bryce Harper. Overall, not a ton to complain about! Despite some poor recent outings, Nelson shut down a Mets offense that was batting Ruben Tejada second and Darrell Ceciliani fifth. Overall it was a down day for scoring but this lineup finished 1,629-of...

Leave It To Meetings

An interesting piece of information was reinforced during the Mets’ latest game … a two hour block of sadness wrapped up in a 4-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers that was the seventh time in a row they have left the field scoring less runs than the other team. And that is this: Of the nine players in the Opening Day lineup for the Las Vegas 51’s, three of them were in tonight’s...

Mets Fall Under .500 After 4-1 Loss To Brewers

The New York Mets were defeated by the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 4-1 tonight at Miller Park. It was an embarrassing defeat on many levels for the Mets as one of the worst pitchers in the National League, Jimmy Nelson, held them to just two hits over eight innings. Nelson had a 6.06 ERA entering the game and had been hammered in just about all of his starts against NL teams...

Preview: Brewers vs. Mets

The New York Mets have no answers offensively during a winless trip, though they could make strides facing a pitcher who has been battered at Miller Park. As the Mets try to avoid their longest skid in four years, Jimmy Nelson hopes to help the Milwaukee Brewers take the first two of this three-game series Wednesday night. New York (36-36) is having trouble getting anything going...

Back to Bushville: Milwaukee Brewers-New York Mets series preview

You can’t say the Milwaukee Brewers didn’t need the day off. But even a day of rest won’t cure what ails them. One might say a simple day off won’t get them out of the hole in which they’ve Doug dug themselves. Prior to Monday, the Brewers had played 17 games in a row. Even a competitive team will wear down under that kind of workload; coupled with a road trip during which...

Give and it shall be given unto you: Washington Nationals defeat Milwaukee Brewers

Friday night, the Milwaukee Brewers won a satisfying, complete victory over the Washington Nationals. Saturday afternoon, the visiting Nationals returned the favor. Powered by young right-hander Joe Ross and steadily hammering away on the Brewers’ Jimmy Nelson, the Nationals defeated the Brewers 7-2. It started out as a tense, back-and-forth contest, but Ross, in his second Major...

Milwaukee Brewers rebuilding for 2016

MLB Power Rankings: June Edition

30. Milwaukee Brewers Honestly, just nothing has gone right for them this year.  Lohse and Garza have played very poorly and Jimmy Nelson is their best pitcher, which perfectly exemplifies how bad they’ve been collectively on the mound. The Brewers haven’t been much better at the plate either.  Ryan Braun is a shell of what he once was, Carlos Gomez is having a somewhat rough...

Rookie Foltynewicz sharp as Braves quiet Brewers

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 15

Sorry for yesterday’s unpublicized absence — I was pretty under the weather. Before we get to Friday’s lineup, let’s check in on Wednesday’s team. Well, the offense was awesome with two 20-point players and four more batters tallying 9-14 points, but Francisco Liriano was disappointing and Jimmy Nelson got roughed up by the long ball in the first inning. Most of my lineups...
