Estrada unhappy with move to bullpen, but understands

MILWAUKEE -- After learning of the Milwaukee Brewers' decision to move him from the starting rotation to the bullpen, Marco Estrada wasn't pleased, but that was to be expected.

Pitcher Profile: Jimmy Nelson And The Brewers’ Dire Need For The All-Star Break

Oh man, did the Crew need that win yesterday!  Even up 11-1, I thought K Rod might blow the lead.  The way things have gone... But it's not all about me and the Brewers!  At least, that's what the girlfriend keeps telling me... Yesterday, Wily Peralta showed some exceptional stuff in easily the biggest game of 2014 for Milwaukee, but the day before, high-profile prospect...

Milwaukee Brewers facing tragedy off the field

It’s been a terrible last ten games for the Milwaukee Brewers.  Nine of them have been losses, and last night’s defeat stung extra strongly. The Brewers blew a 6-0 lead to lose 7-6 after a go-ahead home run by Matt Holliday. Their NL Central lead has shrunk to one game, and they could lose it before the All Star Break if the Cardinals keep beating them. Jimmy Nelson, who has...

Brewers Friday: Milwaukee makes room for Nelson in rotation

MILWAUKEE -- After discussing the switch over the last couple of weeks, the Milwaukee Brewers officially moved Marco Estrada out of the starting rotation Thursday night to make way for top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson. What made the timing right for Nelson to come up now? The right-hander was simply pitching too well to stay in Triple-A. "I think it had both to do with him...

Brewers head into All-Star break with big series vs. Cardinals

MILWAUKEE -- When a team has lost nine of its last 10 games, it is hard to build any series up to be much bigger than the last. It wouldn't matter if it were the worst team in baseball coming to Miller Park this weekend -- the Milwaukee Brewers need some sort of positive momentum heading into the All-Star break. That said, it's hard to not build this weekend's series...

Jimmy Cracked Corn, Insert Team He’s Facing

Now that I'm married Jimmy Carter's line, "I've looked on a lot of women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times." Really stands out to me. I don't necessarily want to think about Jimmy Carter in lust, or even contemplating lust. The thing he doesn't say is if he wasn't married, he'd be lusting too. Men are men, and...

If and when he gets the call for the Marlins, he’ll be pitching for a National League team in a good park for pitchers. The only hesitation I have is that he only has four Triple...
